Fault-finding chapters direct you to the relevant chapter, e.g. 'Machine will not turn drum' directs you to look at Belts, Motors & Door Switches chapters. Well set out step-by-step chapters.
If you're practically minded this is a worthwhile investment.
No need to buy both this book and the Washing Machine Manual - it's all in here! - as basically the same book arranged slightly differently with a few extra chapters about driers in this book.
Just last week helped me identify a broken drive-belt as the problem which was quickly, cheaply and easily rectified more than making up for the cost of the book. It's also rewarding to fix a problem yourself and usually with a little bit of common sense it's not half as complicated as it might first appear. Hope it's of use to you!
The book is a good guide & it is most advisable to read before starting the disasembly sequence,I could not find a maintenance workshop manual & I.P.C. specifically for our machine,the shops would not release it.
However it does not go in to specifics that must be watched out for,i.e.the speed monitor on the outside of the rear bearing,this is a push fit connector but looks soldered on & can easily be torn off on drum removal.
In the end the book was a good guide & it did indeed take 8 hours + to strip & rebuild this machine,if care is taken it would cost under £20 to replace the bearings,the shop wanted £160.
I would recommend this book but remember patience,common sense & a bit of thought are also required.......look at each stage before you do it & take youre time.
Another good tip which the book doesnt mention is to knock the new bearings back in using the old ones as long as this will not damage the parts,the bearings must be insalled perfectly otherwise they will last no time at all.
Ensure that the correct PNC number is used when ordering parts as this will save alot of hassle.

Summing up, I feel confident it was money very well spent.
