Hi Mike,

I can open the xls file from Bill

Would like to see how you set up your maintenance record but can’t open it. The file seems to be damaged

 

Could you send it again?

Re: Bosch washing machine for Amel 54

Arno Luijten
 

Hi Ruedi,

Sorry for the late reply.
No, my OEM Bosch is still going after my intervention which mainly consisted of painting the thing from the inside and respraying the front panel. But I’m not surprised with the remark of Bill Rouse. One of the most overrated brands from Germany must be Bosch. I have so many bad experiences with Bosch, it is no longer funny. Typically when my car had some failure is was due to a Bosch part (and I drive only non-German cars). Also the way the washing machine on the Amel has been constructed is very, very run of the mill. There is nothing special about them other then they still used a fully stainless drum as opposed to the Korean brands that seem to think is is a good idea to have the part that holds the drum to the actual shaft made of aluminium. Korean washers need an anode!
SV Delos found this out the hard way.

So I don’t think you would do poorly with Beko. They have been around for a quite while in Europe and my guess is they have improved over time in contradiction to Bosch that only wants to save money.

Cheers,

Arno
SV Luna,

Hi Martin

 

No, according to Robins picture he installed on the original place where the Bosch, was above the toilet bowl. But still then it is very challenging to put in there. Especially to bring it down through the forward door. I think he had to final assemble the fixing bolts after moved it the forward head. Isn’t it Robin.

BEKO is an up-and-coming Turkish manufacturer and in the US recently a Beko dishwasher was rated higher than Bosch, The measurements for the  BEKO WMB51022YU clothes washer mentioned by Porter: Height 84cm / Width 60cm / Depth 41,5cm. BTW, Porter replaced a failed Bosch with Beko because Bosch would not allow its authorized Bosch repair service in the US to order a replacement PCB for a Bosch washer distributed in Europe. I am sure that there is logic in this somewhere, but it eludes me.

 

Amel 54 OEM Washer is BOSCH WLX24460FF Height:85.6cm / Width:59.5cm / Depth:44.1cm

Did anyone replaced the Bosch washing Machine (WLX24460FF) Amel installed originally on the A54 with the Bosch WLT24440 (series6 - 6.5kg) ?

Dear Arno,

you have mentioned this Bosch machine two years ago as a possible replacement. Did you installed this Model on Luna?

The depth measure is 44.6 cm, slightly bigger than the original Bosch, and yes the model is still available in Europe.

You will have fun finding a replacement. There are a few that you may be able to find with the same size. 

 

I saw this at some point:

Bosch WLT24440

and/or Siemens WS12K440/WS10K460/WS10K160/WS10K360

But I’m not sure if they are still available

Bear in mind that Amel added some bolt-holes in the bottom to secure the machine.

Apparently you can remove the washer as one unit. The dryer needs to be taken apart completely in situ as it is too big.

The dryer was modified quite a bit by Amel. Basically they cut the lower back right corner off the machine and rerouted the exhaust through the bottom. 

The dryer can still be obtained in the UK last time I checked:

White Knight C37AW 3 kg Dimensions  (H) 67 x (W) 50 x (D) 47cm (same machine, different brand)

White Knight C39AS 3.5 kg Dimensions: H67cm x W50cm x D47cm (bit more capacity because of reversing drum)

In my case I ended up replacing the heater element of the dryer as it was broken and repainting parts of both machines. They work fine now.

Re: MDKAL starting problem

Bob, 

I can't give you the exact number (we don't have an Onan anymore, and when we did, ours was a different model) but the label on the solenoid has the original number from the manufacturer for the solenoid, which is the one you need.  You might have some luck if you have the Onan part number for the specific part on your genset, and using that to look up cross reference numbers.

Re: Maintenance spreadsheet or software

Bill Kinney
 

I have used ShipShape Pro as an App on my iPad for years as my maintenance planning and recording program.  There is a bit of a learning curve (unless you are a database nerd) but it's worth it. You can save maintenance schedules, things that break, tracking of costs, photos, repairs, logs of trips and fuel, etc, etc.  I'd have to work REALLY cheap before it was worth my time to set up my own program to do all the things this program does...

Don't try to implement ALL of the features right at the start, but add them a bit at a time. If you are the OCD type you can use it to organize all your storage locations on the boat as well.  I am not that organized!

I don't know it it is available on other platforms, but it seems well suited to the iPad.
