If you’d rather spend your time doing other things, then call the washer repair professionals at Appliance & Air Care Experts so we can make your life easier.
Mix water coming in and out, huge power demands, and a large rotating drum inside and you can imagine a multitude of problems. Thankfully, most problems are minor if you have kept up with maintenance, but some larger problems can threaten your home with fire and flood.
When you notice strange noises, smells, or your washing machine is moving a lot when it should not, you need the help of professionals. Let’s take a look at some common washing machine problems.
Each time you wash clothes, the motor in your washing machine is put under a lot of stree. Rotating the drum takes a lot of power, especially when you wash large loads at a time.
If the motor is overheating, you might smell a slight burning aroma when using the machine. There are also inbuilt functions that can shut down the motor when it is too hot, and you won't be able to use it again until it has cooled. If the motor is overheating regularly, give us a call.
The drum in your washing machine spins, creating a slight vibration when in use. If the washer is vibrating too much, it could mean an unbalanced drum, and the longer you leave it, the more likely it is to become damaged.
There are many moving parts in a washing machine, and it makes some noise when in use, but you know your machine, and you know what level of noise is normal. If there are extra or weird noises, something is not right internally. Usually, the culprit is a foreign material slipping into the filter, rubber seal, or the drum.
Water is constantly going in and out of your washer, so there is always the potential for a leak. If you notice a wet spot around your washer, call the professionals before it is too late. The longer you leave it, the more damage the leak will do. A punctured or lose drain hose is the usual suspect causing a washer leak.
If the hose is clogged, it will stop the water from getting in or out. If your clothes are not wet or the washer is not draining, you might have a clogged hose. You can detach the hose to remove the blockage, but be careful of the water in it. Usually, hair and foreign objects are the culprits.
If you don’t check the pockets of clothing, you might find foreign objects in your wash. Small objects like coins can get between the drum parts and stop it from spinning properly or get into the hose and block it. As we discussed earlier, foreign objects can block hoses, puncture drain hoses causing leaks, and cause strange noises.
Too much soap can result in the clothes not rinsing properly. Furthermore, you also don't want soap sitting in the machine after the wash. Check that the soap you use is rated for the temperature you are washing your clothes, and always use the directed amount.
If your soap dispenser is not clean, it can create a blockage, and the soap will not be released or will exacerbate the blockage. Schedule time to clean the dispenser monthly to reduce mold and mildew.
