another thumbs up for Alex Gabriel of Gabriel Speedy Repairs (020-8692-7959) - he changed the theromostats in my tumble dryer.

He came around in the evening so I didn't have to take time off work and only charged me £40!!!!

Very happy customer :)

On washing machines, it might be that VN and the savy misspoddy could have saved me the trip to JohnLewis if I'd paid a bit more attention. I recently noticed that the appliance store on Annerly Hill (given a thumbs up by missP in another thread) sells almost nothing but Bosch washers, which is what Speedy (and skilled) Alex had recommended. Could have bought a top quality washer very locally. Next time....

Beware - customer service (ie turning up as arranged) and courtesy (ie not thinking that putting the phone down on you when you ring up to complain) is not their strong point. :mellow:

I can recommend : http://www.budgetapp...cesonline.co.uk in Beckenham - bought my dishwasher there - they give great discounts too.

And again (seems like my yearly start...) a great review for Alex Gabriel of Gabriel Speedy Repairs (020-8692-7959)
Had a problem with my washing machine. He came to have a look at the problem on NYE , ordered the part, then came back a few days later and fixed it. - cheap and very reliable.

Very nice chap - although I hope I don't need to call him again very soon ;)

Just to make clear, the above refers to the washing machine shop on Anerley Hill and not the wonderful Alex Gabriel!

No, not at all! But my post below Ziwa's sounded like I was criticising Alex!

I agree, called twice, arranged twice, did not turn up twice .... I ended up buying a new washing-dryer .... as I am sick tired of the trips to the laundrette
