  1. Many thanks for that. And, to reinforce your own point: When I took the machine back following the failed repair I had printed out a section of advice from 'Which' outlining what I was entitled to, just a dozen lines or so, both the guy at the "returns" counter, and later the manager refused point blank to read it.
