Ayrshire Domestics Call 07986432198

Quality service at an affordable price.

Hi my name is Quintin Howatson, I am an independent Domestic Appliance Engineer based in Ayr.

I repair almost all domestic electrical appliances.

 Call 07986432198 and speak to me directly,

 Not someone in a call centre.

Please bear in mind I may be working when you call and unable to answer the phone.

 However please leave your name and number and I will call you back asap.

Please have a note of the make, model number and approximate age of your appliance before you call.

 Quality matters that is why all work is fully guaranteed for 6 months. This covers parts and labour, providing you keep your receipt.

There are a very few safety related parts that are not covered by manufacturers guarantees, for example safety thermostats. Some manufacturers are now only giving a 3 months guarantee on parts. If this applies to you I will inform you before fitting and explain what guarantee you have. Unfortunately due to domestic manufacturers policies I cannot now do guarantees for repairs on appliances that are used in commercial premises.

As you will appreciate this is out with my control.

Affordable, Professional Service

Repairs to most makes and models

Call outs available most days throughout Ayrshire

Washing Machines

 Electric Cookers


Tumble Dryers

 Fridges and Freezers (Not American style or appliances that have frost free freezers.)

Please note I do not repair microwave ovens, gas cookers, vacuum cleaners and small appliances like food processors.

I work for myself and try to keep prices affordable, whilst  giving you a reliable quality service.

I have been in business now since 2002 and pride myself on my reliability. If you make an appointment with me I guarantee to be there at the time we arrange.

I will not let you down as I understand how frustrating it is when tradesmen do not appear.

Please feel free to post reviews on my Yell.com page or on Google. I can then transfer them to this site.

Last time I looked there were around 120 reviews, a huge thank you to all who take the trouble.

I would not carry out a repair on your appliance that I would not happily do to one of my own.

Washing Machine not working.

Quinton came out to fix my washing machine on the same day I called him. He arrived at the approximate time. Fortunately, it turned out to be a simple fix and he got my machine working again in no time. He also gave me a few useful tips. Quinton is knowledgeable, professional and friendly and I definitely recommend him.

Fantastic service, very reasonable.

Fantastic service again from Quinten...so professional and great at his job ..2 jobs done for over the past year. Cracking Service And a nice guy as well.

Top notch service.

My washing machine broke down and Quinton was able to come out within one day and had it repaired within an hour. He diagnosed the problems in no time at all. Quick, professional and reasonably priced.

A pleasant surprise.


1st November 2022

Had a fault with our dishwasher. Contacted Quinton by phone and an appointment was arranged. The fault was quickly determined and expertly repaired. The fault was a broken wire, but in an area out of sight and not accessible under normal circumstances. The cost was less than expected. I have no worries about recommending Quintin to anyone needing a domestic appliance repair.

9th December2021

Friendly, trustworthy service, superfast.

My oven stopped working and Quintin was contacted at Ayrshire Domestics, he is our first point of call as he fixed our washing machine 2 years before and we knew how reliable and trustworthy he is. Once again he was super fast as the part was ordered straight away; within 2 day's our oven was working again and Quintin saved the day. He is a very friendly, trustworthy and experienced engineer and I highly recommend him for any jobs around your home. Thank you again Quintin...


9th December2021

Fantastic experience, reliable and trustworthy.

Very professional, quick no hassle response from Quintin. Having previously used him I had no hesitation in using him again. The repair on the oven was carried out extremely quickly and cost effectively. Another great job and will continue to use Quintin again if any appliances breakdown. As a landlord I need someone reliable and who turns up when they say they will, and Quintin is very reliable and punctual. Thank you for all your help again Quintin.

Called yesterday afternoon, came out this morning. Gave a window for the appointment, wore a mask, was happy to share vaccinaton status, and kept distant, as vulnerable person was in the house. Polite, efficient, no fuss service. Washing machine fixed within half an hour. We have had several repairs over the years, and Mr Howatson has always been reliable.


3 March 2021

Great service.

Outstanding service ! Really grateful to Quintin who I phoned today as my elderly mother’s washing machine door handle broke with a load of washing in machine and more needing done . He was working nearby , came within half an hour , found the problem and luckily had the spare part in his car! Can’t ask for better than that . Very professional service , lovely chap and reasonable price too. Delighted with the service in all respects , can highly recommend .


7 August 2020

 Really great service.

Phoned Ayrshire Domestics today as my washing machine had suddenly stopped working. Explained the situation to Quintin who immediately had an idea about what the problem may be. He arrived a couple of hours later, I hadn’t expected a same day service! Quintin immediately set to work and fixed the problem. Great service and much appreciated.


21 May 2020

Highly recommended service.

Excellent fast response and very professional conduct. Have used the service twice now and repair was not expensive and completed to a high standard. Would definitely highly recommend the service provided. Quinton is very respectful and friendly and we have found him to be trustworthy coming into our home.


16 August 2019

Highly Recommend

My husband spoke to you this morning and you identified the problem with my washer drier without even coming out - a bra wire stuck through the drum. My husband was able to remove it and the machine is fine. I cannot thank you enough for your help and honest approach. If I had phoned anyone else I know I would have faced a hefty call out charge. I would recommend you without hesitation and will use you for any future appliance issues.

Very professional

Its great to get someone who knows exactly what he's doing. Had a problem with my built in fridge which he managed to solve in no time and at a competitive price. Will definitely be in touch again should anything else arise with fridge, oven etc. Very impressed!

Washer Dryer repair

Quickly sorted out an issue with a washer dryer not drying. Very happy with the service and professionalism offered.

The job was completed quickly and explained fully what the issue was and how it was fixed.

Will definitely use again


16 Aug 2017

First rate service

Quintin came to my property three times within a week - always on time - to fix my washer dryer. Turned out that there was a fault which was a potential fire hazard so we decided to scrap the machine. Quintin insisted on refunding me half of the call out charge, which I thought was absolutely amazing. Would not hesitate to recommend his service and he will be the first I will call for any future problems.


07 Jul 2017

Genuine Honest Guy

We used Quintin a while back and didn't realise that he had this review facility. Never too late to say how impressed we were with his service and manner. Would recommend him to anyone who needs a good job, well done at a fair price when compared to the larger concerns offering a similar service. Phone Quintin first!!!

DavidM-767 First class service


I phoned Quintin at 9am to tell him I had a problem with my dishwasher. He said he could be with me by midday and true to his word he arrive at noon. He quickly diagnosed the problem and resolved on the spot.

I've used him previously and I'll have no hesitation in using him again.

I am happy to recommend a terrific local business.

CarolD-57 Urgent call out


What can I say about this guy except his work and speed is first class. I called him out to an elderly lady who was desperate for her oven to be repaired. Within two hours Ayrshire Domestics came out and fully repaired it with no disruption to the lady . The gentleman explained everything he was doing as he went along . I can never thank him enough for the fast response . I highly recommend and would use again without any doubt

AnneD-42 Zanussi washing machine repair.


Mr Howatson is reliable, upfront with repair costs, efficient and pleasant. I strongly recommend him and will have no hesitation in contacting him again should an appliance require attention.,Mr Howatson diagnosed the problem with the machine and gave me a price for the repair, over the phone . An arrangement was made for him to come to fix it and he arrived promptly. He certainly knew his way around what is a fairly old model and the new pump was installed with the minimum amount of fuss. Because of its age he had a thorough inspection, finding another small part badly worn which would soon also cause bother. To save another call out it was agreed that this also be replaced. I strongly recommend Mr Howatson: he is professional, upfront with his charges, reliable and pleasant. I shall certainly call him again if any other appliances require attention.

DavidR-236 Zanussi Repair


Called Ayrshire Domestics at 9 am today. Mr Howatson came at lunchtime, diagnosed the problem and replaced worn parts to have machine working again. Great service at a competitive price and with no surprises.

DavidK-98 Blocked Dishwasher


I'm glad I called Ayrshire Domestics - the dishwasher was fixed in minutes thanks to expert knowledge of the layout of filters and a nifty hand pump. And, as it say on the website, you get the man himself not a call centre!
