Common Washing Machine Problems

Having a washing machine around in your house is a wonderful convenience that goes without saying, that is, until it breaks down and leaving you with loads of laundry. As soon as you detect any problems with your washing machine, schedule repair services right on to minimize the risk of water damage or further dilemmas. Here are some common problems indicating you might need washing machine repair service. 

No Water In the Drum

If the drum won’t filling with water, there are some potential causes. There could be an issue with your cold and hot water faucets. There could be a defect in the hose, a delayed cycle selection, or a clogged filter. Seek professional advice if these issues cannot be resolved. 

Water Remains In the Drum

After the washing cycle is complete, there should be no water left in the drum. Ensure the drain hose is not clogged, and that clothing hasn’t tangled in the washer and blocked the pump. If that does not solve the problem, the culprit might be the water pump. 

Water pump replacement should be left for an expert. 

The Drum Does Not Spin

If the drum does not spin, the belt or cover switch may be to blame. Replacing the belt is quite simple. However, replacing the cover switch is a more complex repair and must be performed by a professional.

Excessive Noise

When the washer makes a lot of noise during the washing cycle, the machine may simply be off-balance. Make sure a load of clothes is dispersed evenly. If that is ineffective, check that the machine is level on the floor. If the noise still remains, the drum or motor mount may be loose. Accessing the drum and mount is difficult, and you should hire a professional to fix that.
