If your washer is making odd noises, dripping, or performing less than subpar cleaning jobs, then you should book your same-day repair right now. Dripping washers can result in dangerous mold growth in the home, and also pose slipping or electrical shock hazards for those walking around the appliance.
Washers that are running on older and worn out parts will be less efficient than their newer counterparts, which will quickly become expensive for you. in the form of high monthly bills.
If you want to save cash and save yourself some emergency anxiety and paranoia, repairing your broken washing machine is a must.
Washer won’t start:
Drive Motor: The drive motor is responsible for spinning and agitating during the washing cycle. If the drive motor won’t start, but makes a buzzing noise, than it is defective and will need to be repaired. To check the motor, remove the drive and try turning on the dryer again. If the motor starts, then the problem is likely with the transmission or the pump; if the motor doesn’t start, then it will have to be replaced.
Start Switch & Timer: The start switch and/or timer control the various cycles, i.e. wash and rinse cycles, when the washer is in use. Start switches are usually only available on top loading washing machines. When these fail, the washer doesn’t know when to start and end cycles, so it won’t turn on. These can be tested with a multimeter; because of the complex wiring that is attached to these components, it’s best to call a certified technician to take a look if you belief one of these are your problem.
Timer Knob: For washers that use use a start switch, the timer knob is another thing to check if your unit won’t turn on. The knob can become loose or slip on the shaft over time during normal use. When this happens the knob can’t engage the switch mechanism, which stops power from the timer to the rest of the appliance. You will have to visually check the part to make sure that the timer knob is not loose.
Door/Lid Switch: The lid switch is a safety device located under the lid or door of the washing machine. This switch is designed to prevent the machine from turning on unless the switch is activated. If there is something blocking the lid switch, or it fails, then the washing machine won’t start. Check to make sure nothing is blocking the switch; if you can see that there is nothing blocking it, and the machine is being activated but it is still not turning on, then there is likely an issue with wiring and you will need to get it repaired.
Washer is leaking:
Hoses: If your washing machine is leaking, one of the first place to look is the hoses. There are many hoses connected to the washer, the most common being the fill and drain hoses. The fill hoses are what connect the water supply to the water inlet valve. The fill and the drain hoses are usually located behind the washer. When inspecting the hoses, you should check to make sure that they are securely fitted to the faucet. Also check the hoses for wearing and tearing; if you see any the hoses should be replaced quickly.
Pump: The water pump, also known as the drain pump, is the part of the washer that drains the water from the tub. The drain pump is normally located at the base of the washer. There are a couple of different types of pumps, depending on the type of washer that you have, including direct drive pump, belt driven pump, or a separate electric pump. Whatever kind of pump that you have, the pump will have a circulating hose outlet, tub inlet, and a drain hose/outlet. If water is leaking from the unit during a cycle, check the drain pump for signs of a loose hose clamp, or a leaking hose.
Water Inlet Valve: The water inlet valve is located at the back of the unit and controls the entry of hot and cold water in the washing machine. It is located where the hoses connect. If you are noticing leaks from the back of the washer, while water is starting to fill appliance, you most likely have a faulty water inlet valve. For a quick check, make sure that the inlet hoses are connected tightly to the outlet hose. Also, inspect the valve for signs of damage, such as cracks. If you notice any damage you will have to call a technician for a repair.
Washer won’t fill with water:
Water Level Pressure Switch: The water level pressure switch is a part of the water inlet valve circuit. This switch is located behind the control panel. If the switch is faulty, it won’t supply power to the water inlet valve; this can be checked with a multimeter, though you may need the wiring diagram for your particular washer to determine where to check the switch. If you are unsure it is best to call a certified technician to come and take a look.
Lid Switch: The lid switch is used on a top loading washing machine as a safety device. On a front loading washer it is known as a door switch. These devices are used to prevent the motor circuit from turning on while the door or lid to the appliance is opened. Check to make sure that nothing is blocking the switch; if something is blocking it, the machine won’t turn on or fill with water. You can also try unplugging your washer and plugging it into another outlet to see if the problem is with the power rather than your washer.
Remember to *always* turn off the power to any appliance before attempting a repair.
