Washing machines usually provide comfort and this is in regards to the fact that you do not have to drag your laundry down the street to a Laundromat, where you will have to fight other people for the privilege of getting your clothes washed. With a washing machine, it is all so simple and this is because you only need to separate the whites and colors then hit the start button after cramming in as many as those that will fit. So what if you hit the start button and nothing happens? Well, this definitely means that something is up and you need to take care of it fast so as to get your laundry done before the clothes start piling up.
Washing machines are usually complicated when they malfunction which is why you need to call a repairman who will most likely identify where the problem is at. This is in regards to the valves, motors that turn water on, drain the water, spin the tub and control the water temperature that are known to be the most common issues that emanate from a washing machine that is not functioning. Some of the most common parts of the washing machine that need fixing include:
Pump and Pump Motor
In this case, the drain pump may be culprit which is causing your washing machine to malfunction and this is because it is responsible for pumping the water from the wash tub before and during the spin cycle. Our repairman will identify whether the pump is belt driven, motor driven or it has its own electric motor. This will determine where the issue is especially when the aforementioned areas are identified. Whether it is any noise emanating from the washing machine or the fact that it is not in operational, clearly indicates that the drain pump has a restriction or has become defective.
This is used to connect the drive motor to the transmission and it is usually evident in some top load washer or the drive motor to the wash basket, which is usually found in most front load washer. Our repairman will identify they type of washing machine you have so as to get to the problem and this saves you time to get your washing done in time. The drive belt is usually evident as a;
- Single V shaped belt or
- Multi-rib belt
Most of them are normally made of rubber but usually have a fabric covering that either allows for some slippage or reduce the amount of friction created each time the motor starts up. This variation makes it easier for the repairman to know what they are looking for and rectify it.
Your washing machine may be having shock absorbers that have weakened with time or become damaged. Shock absorbers are usually found in all front load washers and they are used to dampen the tub movement in the spin cycle. This are usually attached to the base frame and to the outer tub and for the repairman to access them, they need to remove the front or rear panel. In the event that our repairman identifies this as the issue with your washing machine, you need to have it repaired immediately. This is because it can lead to the damaging of other components especially if the issue is not corrected or tackled in time. One important thing to remember is that before attempting this particular repair or other repairs, do ensure that the power is turned off.
