Rapid response and quick fixes at half the price


Average repair cost £85.00

The majority of tumble dryer faults are either Not tumbling or Not heating. We can advise you over the telephone before you spend large sums of money repairing it. Call us for some good money saving advice.

Be cautious with fixed price repairs, when our average repair cost is only £85.00, including parts. Sometimes all that is needed is a thermostat or a belt. Ring us for a chat so that we can discuss what is wrong with your tumble dryer and the realistic repair cost.

Hot tips

The condenser unit of your tumble dryer must be kept clean. Failure to keep clean will cause the thermostats to fry!

I find the best way to clean them is to use a hosepipe. It is much easier than trying to pick out those fluff.

After hosing down, leave to dry before replacing.
