Hey guys, should I........

A colleague at work has offered me a Bosch washing machine. She didn't know the model right off (she's a washing machine, that's all that matters). Apparently it is just a couple of years old and the "on" switch stopped working. She does not like to bother with repairs so she called the local dealer and just had them send out a new machine. This one is sitting in her garage and she told me to come pick it up (free) if I want it.

Sure I want it and will go pick it up next week (she has the flu right now so I told her I would come by next week) here is my question: How hard is it to get a part if I just an individual and not a service shop? This would be my first repair to a modern appliance. Good move?

You should be able to order the part from Bosch or a local, independent appliance repair place. I called Bosch when I acquired a floor model pedestal, for free no less, that needed the installation parts. The parts department sent them out to me with out much fuss, also for free. HTH, Todd

You may be able to order parts on line.
