A broken washing machine means dirty clothes are piling up. It means uncomfortable trips to the laundry or an expensive delivery and collection service of Washing Machine repairing in Islamabad. This is why you want to repair your washing machine as soon as possible. What you may not realize is that you can troubleshoot some washing machine problems on your own, before picking up the phone to call a repair professional. Of course, major repairs should be left to experts to make sure you don’t further damage your unit by taking something apart that you can’t put back together.
The washing machine does not work at all
It may sound like common sense, but the reason your washing machine is not working could be that it is unplugged or the plug is loose. Check the power connection first. If everything is plugged in properly, you can verify that there is power to that outlet by unplugging the washer and plugging in another small appliance, like a hair dryer. If the hair dryer works, the outlet is fine and the washing machine is broken; If the hair dryer is not working, check that the GFCI has not tripped and inspect your electrical panel to see if a circuit breaker has tripped. If all the circuit breakers are on and the outlet does not provide power, you need an electrician instead of a washing machine repair technician.
Washer won’t fill or drain
Do you know that when your garden hose kinks, the water can’t get through? The same goes for the hoses on your washing machine. If your washer is on but not filling with water, check the inlet hoses for kinks or clogs. If the washer is not draining after the cycle ends, check that the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. If all the hoses are clean and not kinked, you may have a bigger problem. Contact an appliance repair expert to examine the lid switch, water level switch, pump, drive belt, and other possible culprits.
Loose hose connections can cause leaks during filling or draining. If you find a puddle on the floor every time you start the washer, check that all hose connections are tight and secure. For front loaders, also check the door gasket; small holes or tears could leak water. If you don’t see a problem when the washer is off, try observing it during a cycle to see where the water is coming from. Damaged hoses, bad connections, and broken door gaskets might need to be replaced to stop the leak.
The washing machine makes noise
A poorly balanced washer can rattle and cause all kinds of noise. If your washing machine keeps you awake at night, check that the unit is level and insert a small piece of wood under one or more legs as needed. Excessively large or heavy loads can also make the washer too loud. However, if you’ve cut your load size in half and the washer is level but still making horrible noises, it’s time for a washer / dryer repair professional like meerconsultants to step in. You may need a new agitator or other component.
