The washing machine plays a vital role in making our lives easier. However that doesn’t mean it has an easy job!
Like any other appliance, the washing machine goes through a significant amount of wear and tear. If your washing machine requires a service, the signs can be easy to spot if you know what to look for.
3 signs your washing machine needs a service
Washing machine making excessive noise
Noisy washing machine? If you’re hearing excessive noise from your washing machine then it may be off balance. Try rearrange the clothes to evenly disperse them across the appliance. If rearranging them doesn’t help then your drum or motor mount may be loose. Accessing the drum can be tricky so you may want to call an appliance repair service company.
Water doesn’t fill the drum of the machine
If water is not filling the drum there may be a kink in the hose, a clogged filter or water intake valve. Try checking your hoses and pipes to ensure they’re not bent and free from obstructions. If you’ve addressed these issues and the problem persists, you will want to seek professional assistance.
Drum not draining
When the cycle is complete all water should be drained from the drum. If once your cycle is complete, there is still water in the washing machine drum you can check if something has blocked the pump or drain hose. If a blockage isn’t the problem, your pump may be. Replacing a pump is a task best left to the professionals.
Ensuring your washing machine is working optimally means your clothes will be squeaky clean and there won’t be any increases to your water and energy consumption. If you spot any of these warning signs, your machine may simply need a service! This can be more cost effective than completely replacing the machine.
