    Is/was yours filling with water during the cycle (i.e. not draining)?

    I had a similar problem with my Miele after re-installing it when our new kitchen went in. I borrowed the carpenters compressor and blew compressed air through the drain hose, sticking the nozzle of the airgun down the drain hole near the impeller and detaching the end of the drain hose from the plumbing. It cleared some junk from the drain and its worked fine ever since.

    Cheers, I suspected this might be the case! Time to rethink.

    Arghh, two hours trying every conceivable option and no luck. The existing switch/circuit is wired like this now, the switch I'm trying to connect to is the first one:

    I can't for the life of me figure out how to connect the new switch and light to this. The closest diagram I can find is designed around a 1-way switch rather than 2-way...

    I'll turn my hand to most things but electrics makes my head hurt. I'm trying to fit an outside light using the wiring that an electrician put in for me from an existing switch. The switch in question controls our hall lights with in conjunction with another switch at the other end of the hall. Currently there doesn't seem to be any power going to the outside light. Took a crappy pic - can anyone spot anything wrong?

    100% this.

    I'm (coming to the end of) renovating my house and combo dewalt drill and impact driver set is the best thing that ever happened to me.

    I also have a Makita SDS for drilling through walls for waste pipes etc.

    I'd dabbled in sketchup but gave up after a few aimless minutes. Will have another look.

    Your shed looks epic by the way - good work. Out of interest where did you get your timber from - a local timber yard? I built a fairly hefty deck last year and used Jewson's but wasn't exactly impressed with the quality of their timber... bows and twists for days.

    Small by comparison. It'll be a long shallow lean-to (4.5mx0.7m).

    I'm designing a shed. Has anyone used any good online tools I can use?
