That is why you need to receive your washer repaired as soon as possible. What you may not realize is that you can troubleshoot a few washing machine problems by yourself, before picking up the phone to call a repair professional.

Washing Machine

Washer would not run at All

It May look like common sense, but the reason your washing machine is not running could be that it is pliable, or the plug is loose. Check the power connection. If everything is correctly plugged in, you can check that electricity is running to that socket by unplugging the washing machine and plugging in another small appliance, like a hair dryer. If the hair dryer functions, the socket is fine and the washer is broken; when the hair dryer does not work, check to be certain that the GFCI has not been triggered and inspect your electrical panel to find out if a circuit breaker was flipped. If all of the breakers are on and the socket is not giving any power, you want an electrician as opposed to a washing machine repair technician.

Washer would not Fill or Drain

You Understand how when your garden hose gets a kink in it, the water cannot get through. The same is true to your washing machine hoses. If your washing machine is on but not filling with water, check the inlet hoses for kinks or obstacles. If the washer is not draining when the cycle is completed, check the drainage hose for kinks or clogs. If all hoses are clear and kink-free, you may get a larger problem. Speak to an appliance repair specialist to examine your lid switch, water level switch, pump, drive belt, along with other potential culprits.

Washer Leaks

Loose Hose connections could lead to leakage during filling or draining. If you are finding a puddle on the ground each time you operate the washing machine, check that each the hose connections are tight and secure. For sua may giat, check the door gasket; little tears or holes could be allowing water escape. If you do not find any problems once the washer is away, try watching it through a cycle to determine where the water is coming from. Damaged hoses, bad relations, and ripped door gaskets could have to be replaced to prevent the leaking.
