comment My washing machine stopped working. Should I replace, repair or call a technician?
You could call a technician and try to get an estimate, though unless it's under warranty they'll likely tell you it's cheaper to buy a new one.

Only you can answer this question. You have to weigh the options, taking into account the cost of a new machine vs. the cost of a technician vs. the cost of parts and labor to do it yourself.

comment How do I know if a firewall and mortar contain asbestos?
This answer provides some good information, however, it doesn't answer the OPs question 'How do I test for asbestos?'.

comment How do I know if a firewall and mortar contain asbestos?
While your answer offers good tips for safely working with asbestos, it doesn't provide any information on how to determine if you're dealing with asbestos in the first place. How should a homeowner/DIYer determine if asbestos is present, before they start a project like this?

And let us not forget that (in the US at least) the danger level of a product or procedure, is often directly proportional to the settlements payed out due to lawsuits.

While I agree the dangers of asbestos may be overly dramatized, keep in mind that some areas may have laws in place to control asbestos removal. Also remember that if you don't dispose of the asbestos properly, you could be putting other people at risk.
