Common issues with washers

Most people run into one of three common issues with their washing machine: the machine won’t start, the machine is leaking, or the machine doesn’t finish a cycle properly (often accompanied by error code). If you’re experiencing one of these problems, here are some tips to consider prior to calling the pros.

  • The machine won’t start: it sounds obvious but begins by unplugging the machine and then plugging it back in. Check to see that there is nothing in the way when closing the door and ensure that the door closes fully. Sometimes simple steps like these will suffice. If not, call our team of experts to help solve the issue.
  • The machine is leaking: firstly, ensure that you allow the current cycle to finish and do not start another cycle. It is important to not over-stuff the machine as some will begin to leak when full past capacity. Ensure that the hoses that connect to the back of the machine are whole and well attached. If leaking persists after following these suggestions, give us a call. Sometimes all your washing machine needs is a good cleaning. Here are some washing machine cleaning tips.
  • The machine doesn’t finish a cycle properly: your machine starts working and then at some point during the cycle stops which sometimes can cause bad cloth smell. Often times it may display an error code on the screen. If this is the case, look at the manual that accompanied your machine or searches online for the make and model of your machine plus the error code. Often it is a fixable issue such as instability during the spin cycle, an overfull machine, insufficient water supply or similar. If your search to decipher your machine’s error code proves fruitless, you can count on the experts at Express Appliance Repair.

Here are a few things you can do to keep your washer in good condition:

  • Check the water hoses. They will need to be changed if you see bulging, cracking, fraying, or leaks.
  • Keep some space between your washer and any walls.
  • Make sure your washer is level.
  • Clean your washer from time to time.
  • Prevent mildew and bad odours.
  • Don’t overload your washer.
  • Always measure your detergent.

In case the washer door won’t open at the end of the cycle, it is mainly because the lock system is faulty. Most washers have a manual release accessible from under the door lock, so you can try to open the door through that.

If your washer isn’t draining properly, it is because of a clogged hose or even a clogged pump. It can be pretty common for items to get stuck in your washer’s pumps or hoses.

The squeaking noise from your washer usually comes from the pump belt. Regular use can wear the belt down and make it frayed and cracked. This creates thumping and squealing noises during the cycle. A washer repair technician can easily replace the pump with a new one.

We certainly don’t lack choices when it comes to laundry detergent these days. Whether or not you will use powder or liquid detergent is a matter of your personal preference. When it comes to effectiveness, there are advantages and disadvantages to both. For example, powder detergent is more effective on oily stains while liquid detergent is more effective in lifting out every-day stains.

If you are dealing with a washer that is not turning on, it is likely because the lid switch is faulty, the start switch or timer is broken, the washer’s motor is not working, or the main control board is broken. Our experienced washer technicians can quickly repair any of these problems for you.

Depending on the manufacturer, different washers have different cycle options. One of the most common problems with washer cycles is the hot wash. If there is a problem with your water heater, then you will not be able to get the hot wash cycle. If the heater is faulty, you are going to need a washer repair technician to replace it.

The most common washer leakage comes from the door, in which case the problem is the door seal. If you find that your washer leaks water during the cycle, it might be best to call a washer repair professional who can easily diagnose and fix the problem.

First of all, you want to make sure the washer is placed on level ground. If the machine is not on level ground, the vibrations will make it move across the room. Another thing that can help is attaching some non-vibration pads to the bottom of the washer that will add some grip and reduce the shake.

Clogged filters are a common cause of a laundry washer not filling up. You can try to clean the filters and see if this will resolve the issue. If it doesn’t work, a washer repair technician can discover and fix the issue.

The most common cause of bad smells in your washing machine is bacteria or mold growing inside. To solve the problem, turn on a cycle with a mixture of vinegar and baking soda which will eliminate any mildew and bacteria growing inside. To prevent this from happening, limit the use of detergent and softener because soap residue is perfect for such bacteria growth.

The most common reason why your washer won’t drain properly is a clogged drain pump or hose. What you can do in this situation is remove the hoses from the pump to unclog them. If the problem persists, call a washer repair technician to help you.

When your washer doesn’t spin properly, the problem might be the motor, a broken belt, or the lid switch. A washer repair professional can help you fix these issues very fast.
