Tip 1: Do a proper R & D. This is the best way to inquire about the different spare part stores and the type of parts and brands they are dealing with. With such a research you will also come to know about the functionalities of various parts, which will help you in deciding the right one. Tip 2: Once you know what part your washing machine requires, all you need to do is verify its name and the model number. After this, simply place the order and wait for it to get dispatched to your doorsteps.
You can also buy washing machine parts from a bricks and mortar store - if you can find one nearby. You will often have to end up ordering it at the store and then going back to collect it when it finally arrives, as many stores do not keep any but the most common parts now. They do this to reduce their own costs as it is no point them carrying a lot of parts that may well not be needed. They could sit on the shelf for years until that model appliance went out of date and then they would never get sold.
