Washing Machine Repair
A leaking washing machine can quickly cause significant damage to your home. Or maybe your washer wont turn on or wont drain. These are just a few issues that can effect your machine. Read below for tips on when to call a pro and when to attempt a DIY fix.
Machine Wont Turn On
If your washer wont turn on then you'll first want to check your power source. If you have a multimeter you can check the outlet voltage or if not you can plug in something that you know works. If there is no power to the outlet then ensure that the breaker has not been tripped. If there is power to the washing machine then the problem will likely require a qualified appliance repair person.
Washer Wont Drain
Often a washer that wont drain is due to a faulty or worn drain hose. If you have the appropriate tools you can remove the drain hose and inspect it visually for any blockages or signs or wear. If you can see a clog you can attempt to clear it with pressure from your garden hose. If there are obvious signs or wear you can replace the hose. If the hose appears to be in working order theWn its time to call a professional.
Washer is Leaking
If your washing machine is leaking the first thing you will want to do is check the drain hose. See the instructions above for tips. The problem could also be as simple as overusing detergent. When you have too much detergent in the machine the bubbles can build up and spill over which can give the appearance of a leak.
