I bought my Bosch WAE24367GB-34 washing machine in March

Resolved Question:

I bought my Bosch WAE24367GB-34 washing machine in March 2012.
in recent weeks the door seal has become very discoloured ad I believe needs to be replaced. In addition the timing programme has gone awry requiring me to adjust it manually in most cases.
I wish to know whether it is worthwhile having these items fixed/ repaired/ replaced or would it be more cost effective to cut my losses and buy a new machine.

Good morning,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist with your query today.

The door seal can be sourced from here for around £30. The control board which has gone wrong (canusing the issue with the programme) however costs in excess of £100, but can be sourced here.

To replace these two parts its about an hour and a half, so your looking at around £50 for labour.
Based on the age of the washer, my thought is that this isnt an economical repair, and I would put the money towards a replacement.
Please let me know if your require any further advice.
