I ain't no legal eagle but I think the contract is with littlewoods and not the company who made it. If it ain't working then it is up to littlewoods to sort out the repair, give you a new one or give you refund.
I would put this to littlewoods and see what response you have. They are many in consumer watch who have a grasp of consumer rights, lets hope some of these see it.
Well thats what I think.
