How often should I get my drainage checked out?

Like a lot of people, you can wait to get your drains checked out when they become an actual problem. My recommendation is to avoid that. You should hire a drainage Wirral local specialist who can come out and take a look at the drains at least once per year. Drainage issues often start with a bit of a drop-off in efficiency. Before you know it, water is backing up into your sink, and the whole place is stinking. I recommend you get an annual drainage check-up and contact a company that can provide you with support as soon as you notice a problem. I used a company that provided drainage support in Wirral and got the problem fixed nicely and quickly. Now, my drains run as well as they did originally.

What causes a washing machine main PCB board to die?

110 volt home mains supply? 17.9 volts over is pushing it a bit if you get any voltage surges on top of that. Integrated Circuits have a relatively low tolerance. I would change machine brands.

Why is Grohe red tap beeping?

It sounds like it is overheating or it thinks it is overheating. Check the temperature of the water that you pull off with a digital thermometer. It may need a new temperature thermistor. It may also have a pressure sensing gauge. https://www.google.com/search?q=grohe+red+kettle+tap+beeps ..

Haier Washing Machines Temperature sensor error, can I fix this myself?

The first thing to do is to clean the machine following the manufacturer's directions in the owner's manual. I've seen a number of washing machines that generated fault codes because lint or other muck gummed up a sensor; the cleaning process often is enough to take care of the problem. In the U. S., we have a product called CLR (Calcium, Lime and Rust remover) that does a nice job of cleaning out washing machines. I think the primary ingredient is dilute citric acid. Some manufacturers recommend chlorine bleach - go with what is in the manual first. If the cleaning process doesn't eliminate the error code, yes, you probably still can fix the washer, if you can open it. If you know the model number, you may even be able to obtain a service manual that will tell you what to look for. Warning: unplug the machine before removing any covers. Exposed electrical terminals are a shock hazard if the machine is plugged in. Some appliances have a wiring diagram attached inside, or on a service sheet stored inside the control panel. If you find it, the wires going to the temperature sensor will be identified by the colors. For example, a YEL/BLK wire is yellow with a black stripe. You can trace these wires to find and identify the temperature sensor. Once you find the sensor (it will be somewhere in contact with the wash water, probably on or near the tub), inspect the electrical connections at the sensor and at the control unit, and clean up or repair any corroded connections. Check the wiring to make sure it hasn't been pinched between parts and damaged. If the wiring looks good, take the sensor out and remove any muck that is built up on it. Be sure to wipe clean the gasket or o-ring, and any sealing surfaces in contact with the gasket. Re-install, put the machine back together (being careful not to pinch any wires between parts or panels!) and test it. If you still get the error, you may have to replace either the sensor or the controller.

My drum paddles keep breaking off. Nothing stuck inside drum. Getting fed up and don't want to call someone out - would rather a temporary fix for now. Can someone reccomend a glue to fix it?

Your best option is to call someone out! If this is on a washing machine glue won't last very long as the force with which the drum spins will be too much for the glue to hold. Is the machine doing anything else different? This can give clues to why the paddles keep breaking.
