Content & InformationHome Page


The Home Repair Manual listed for sale in this section contains all the relevant items mentioned in the single WM manuals but it covers ALL the models listed rather than just the one, It also covers a larger amount of models which stretch into the 95 series, because they were the forerunner to the WM range and the mechanical side of their construction is the same. Unfortunately only the listed WM models have wiring connection charts. There are over 80 pages of text and diagrammatic information in this manual which is geared to help you locate and rectify most faults, including some of the not so common ones.       

Also included in this manual are wiring connection charts for the following models.

WM11-WM12- WM13-WM14-WM19-WM20- WM21-WM22-WM23-WM25-WM31-WM32-WM34-WM35-WM51-
