    Thanks. I did call them but before they could call back, my neighbour came round and offered to fix it for me.

    I've got a question before I ask for a recommendation...

    If my washing machine isn't draining properly (and I've tried all I can) am I better off calling in a plumber or someone who specialises in washing machines?

    annoyingly that probably depends on why it isn't draining. Is your kitchen sink draining ok?

    Not as well as it should be.

    Then you should sort that first, which is a plumber job if you're not able to do it yourself.

    Always worth cleaning the filter first. It's easy, instructions online. You may need pliers to open and close the lid.

    It might just be leaves in the drain outside. That's what happens to me.

    What I tried first. There's a screw that locks the filter, it's completely stripped so I can't get to the filter. And I've tried a few ways that are meant to get stripped screws out.

    I got him to paint the whole flat and he did a bit of diy as well, great job.

    Can anyone recommend a reliable builder who's reasonably priced in the area ?

    My neighbours and I are looking to get a few garden walls partially rebuilt and rendered.

    Thanks.
