When a washing machine breaks down, this can be often seem like an emergency, but as an appliance engineer with years of experience, I’ve been called into minor problems. While I can’t go into great detail here and there could be other reasons for the problem, I’ll introduce you to 3 common problems along with three possible and very simple solutions that don’t require you Washing Machine Repair in Islamabad.
Always unplug the washing machine from main before carrying out any work.
- If your washing machine does not fill with water at the beginning of a wash, but you can hear a slight hum coming from the back of the washing machine, simple as it may sound, check that the water is not turned off. Pots, pans, dishes, soapboxes, and any other items in the cupboard where the faucets are can be pushed against the faucet causing the faucet to move to the off position, also especially if you have had workmen around to check all valves; you can safely check before calling an engineer, I have personally been called many times simply to find myself in the embarrassing situation of having to charge our call fee just to reopen a faucet.
- If your washing machine does not drain the water or does not give a quick spin or if the clothes are still wet at the end of the wash cycle, you may have a blockage or a faulty pump, the blockages can be anywhere in the machine or in the Let out the drainpipe, so I’ll just get into the basics here.
First, if you have one in your washing machine, check the small filter at the bottom; in front of your washing machine, the lid should be unscrewed with a simple counter-clockwise twist; maybe there is a lot of water in the washing machine that try to escape and could lead water on the floor, the trick here is to turn the lid slowly, in a way that allows you to control the flow of water in a saucepan or bowl, stop the water flow, and empty the saucepan or bowl as often as if necessary, once the washing machine is empty of water, you can check the inside of the filter to see if there is any blockage
- If the door of your washing machine does not open at the end of the wash cycle, again, there could be many reasons for this, but a common reason is that the washing machine detected that all the water was not drained, so it will stay with the door closed to protect it from flooding, you can try services of meerconsultants to any water that may have been left in the washing machine using the technique mentioned above to remove a blockage, once you have drained all the water, it is very likely that the interlock will release the door after the 2 or 3-minute security delay.
