We went through a local company, The Wash and Vac Shop, and it took several weeks. I'm going to try and glue the pad back on and see how it goes. I must admit, I'm reluctant to shell out £80 + fitting (£50+?) on the alternative. The machine is a few years old and I'm not sure how long it will last. I'd be tempted to replace the machine with a Miele if they do them (I haven't done any research).
A condenser dryer is essential as I don't want to stick a hole in the wall for a vent.
I really appreciate the feedback though guys.
