Drum axis broken twice on 40cm Fagor washing machine: planned obsolescence

And if they were repairing rather than throwing and change? Rediscover the pleasure of the repairs yourself. How to diagnose a problem or find spare parts? Repair itself is way to save money generally!

Toutafé: a Fagor LD-110 seems to be at the top level repairability and reliability : Mrgreen:

Good without laughing, I think Miele remains a reference, you will pay it 2 times more expensive but it will last (at least) 4 times longer ...

Which model of which year is the one that is causing you the problem?

It was a Fagor FET-313 from 2004 that I bought from Ocaz in 2014 that dropped me two years ago.
I had then bought a Brandt from 2002 with HS bearings on LBC from which I had reassembled all the elements of the FET-313 which was in a better condition, it only lasted two years longer.

Brandt / Fagor Sauter, Vedette etc, with all these conglomerates, we get lost!

Between prerequisites and reality there is sometimes a gap. I would say 4 times more expensive in this case and apparently not the option of the amount of water depending on the weight of the laundry as was the case of a machine on sale at less than 160 E bought this summer https://www.darty.com/nav/achat/gros_el ... s=note_asc (see the first opinions)

The amount of water depending on the weight of the laundry is just a useless gadget. Miele got it right. : Mrgreen:

I took a look at the price of a honeye washing machine equivalent to my current machine: € 1379, ouch!
More than 3x the price of the new whirlpool, it is sure that at this price it can be reliable and last 20 years even in intensive use, but I do not need such a tank for my occasional use. Is it normal to have to spend 3x more on a machine that is just not designed to self-destruct?

[Edit]
And apparently, miele also uses an aluminum piece to fix the axle to the drum:
Same concern on a novotronic w120 washing machine from 1998. Obviously it is the fixing part of the drum which is veiled. Until today it only bothered when the hatch was opened, but today the defect is made worse during a spin, probably a little overloaded and the machine is out of service. The piece is not sold separately therefore 600eu for a new drum. Ouch!
Before 1998 this piece was in stainless steel, indestructible, now in aluminum and seems to be attacked by washing powder. In addition, the machine is in perfect condition despite its age. So I call it planned obsolescence.
We still find the piece of stainless steel in second hand on the bay for 100eu but I hesitate to undertake an exchange because big dismantling work.

Shit. When you know how to program your washing machine, you don't need those unnecessary gadgets, which add to the bill and which can jump like nothing. Go replace them, the "cards". I had an LG like this, it lasted me 6 months. all the electronics farted, luckily I had a good warranty, I got my money back.

I don't care about talking about washing machines with you, Izy. Sorry. But highly 5G so that you can mumuse with all the gadgets we have available.
