One of the most heavily-used appliances in your home is the washing machine. The average American family washes nearly 300 loads of laundry each year. When something goes wrong, it's important to address the problem as soon as possible. These signs indicate that you might need washing machine repair.
No Water In the Drum
If the drum isn't filling with water, there are several potential causes. There may be an issue with your hot and cold water faucets. There could be a kink in the hose, a clogged filter, or a delayed cycle selection. Seek professional advice if addressing these issues does not solve the problem.
Water Remains In the Drum
There should be no water remaining in the drum once the laundry completes its cycle. Make sure the drain hose is not clogged, and that clothing hasn't tangled in the machine and blocked the pump. If that does not resolve the issue, the culprit may be the water pump. Replacing the water pump is best left to an expert.
The Drum Does Not Spin
If the drum does not turn, the belt or the lid switch could be to blame. Replacing the belt is fairly simple. However, replacing the lid switch is a more complicated repair and should be done by a professional.
When you hear a lot of noise during the wash cycle, the washing machine may simply be off balance. Check your load and make sure that the clothes are dispersed evenly. If that is unsuccessful, verify that the washer is level on the floor. If you continue to hear a lot of noise, the motor mount or drum may be loose. Accessing the drum or mount can be difficult, and you should seek the help of a repair technician.
