Washing machines come in a variety of designs. But problems are common in all of them. Sometimes they stop mid-cycle. At other times they make strange noises and vibrations. The washing machine motor is the most problematic component of this household appliance. All these problems only put more stress on homeowners, wasting a significant amount of their time, money, and efforts. However, these are only few of the many common washing machine problems that homeowners face on a regular basis.
Here, let us take a look at a few more such washing machine problems
#1 Washing Machine Refusing To Start
Your washing machine may not be starting due to various reasons. Its connection may have loosened from the main power switch or the power socket may not be working. Sometimes the door lock also creates problems, stopping the washing machine from starting.
At times, there are problems with the control module or power switch. So, if you are not experienced in dealing with high voltages and live wires, you must call for professional repair services to address the issue.
#2 Washing Machine Not Draining – Creating Noise
If your washing machine is creating noises while draining water, or not draining water at all, its drain pump may be blocked or faulty. This may happen due to accumulation of dirt or cloth fibers.
So, either you can clean up the pump and connect the hose yourself, or do what is more recommended – hire a professional, since this will require complete dismantling of the pump assembly.
#3 Washing Machine Does Not Spin
The drainage system and the spinning mechanism of your washing machine are both connected. So, your machine will not work if there is a problem with its drainage system.
A washing machine without a functional drainage system won’t work!
There is a possibility that the hose extending to the pump or the pump filter itself is blocked.
There are also chances that the motor capacitor of your machine has failed, or the belt attaching to the drum, from the motor, has come off or snapped.
#4 Washing Machine Vibrating Excessively
Your washing machine may be vibrating excessively due to an unbalanced tub, or may be because the entire washing machine isn’t placed on a flat horizontal surface.
Sometimes the tub gets unbalanced because of wear and tear of the machine’s suspension system. So, it is also important to not to overload the machine for the smooth running of the suspension mechanism.
#5 Leaking Washing Machine
The possible reasons causing this problem include; blockage in the drain pipe, build-up of detergent that hasn’t dissolved, over-filling, and surges in power supply. Addressing this issue requires the knowledge and skills of a washing machine professional.
