Call the landlord? It's his responsibility.

Don't bother, they won't do anything. Get it sorted yourself, it'll cost nothing.

yeah that's the plan, but I want someone that some of you lot have used, rather than some dumb twats who come for 3 hours, don't fix anything then expect to be paid.

Not used them myself, but I'm sure I saw a company called Jim'll Fix It recommended on BE.

Jim will fix it's guys sorted out my air conditioning leak within 15 minutes. As long as your washing machine doesn't need a new part that needs to be ordered they will probably sort that out sharpish too.
