WASHING MACHINE REPAIR TIPS
Basically, there are two mechanisms in washing machine which may require repairs. These could either be any of or both water plumbing mechanism and the electronic mechanism that makes it operational. It may be more suitable to get a washing machine repair manual printed by the manufactured firm. This is very essential because it comprises of the circuit diagrams as well as the troubleshooting instructions. Admittedly, there are varieties of washing machine out there, this repair tips is compiled together having considered the basic attribute of all.
- Inability of Washing Machine to Start
First and foremost, look for a tester and also examine the power socket where the washing machine power plug is connected. Ensure that you replace it if you discover it doesn’t supply power. Furthermore, look into the power cable probably if it has been disconnected. To prefer a solution here, you will require an ohm meter and volt meter. Alternatively, you may apply a digital multimeter (Dmm) which combines the two. Supposing it has been damaged, get another substitute. In case these devices are functioning, some more advanced fault includes:
- Improper Functioning of Washer Lid Switch
With the application of a screwdriver, detach the control panel. Identify the harness plug to the lid switch and clear it. Thereafter, confirm the connectivity of the cable problem such as the non-green wire, with the Dmm switched to the resistance reading. It supposed to be infinite when in standard form. After this close the lid and re-examine the resistance value. Naturally, it is expected to display zero value. Change the harness switch if any of these go contrary.
- Washer Timer is not Operational
Examine the time control panel board. It is expected to be black and appear like a chip. Simply remove the leads. Estimate the resistance across the leads again. The resistance should be between 1100 ohm to 3000 ohm. Replace the timer immediately if it goes contrary.
- The washing machine fails to draw water or the water flow is inadequate.
In case the water level is inadequate, it may be that the hose filter is already blocked by dirtiness. Simply detach the hose and tidy the filter gauze using brush. Now water should flow freely without hindrance. Supposing the water is not flowing into the washing machine completely, the fault may be with time circuit. Crosscheck as recommended on the other hand, problem with water flow could as well be bad water level. Just get to control panel circuit, examine the resistance in between the tail of 3 connect cables, in all potential connections, two at once. Ideally, the resistance for a pair must be zero and the other pairing should have infinite resistance. Adjust the water level switch if it is not the same.
- Water occupies the washing machine but refuses to drain it.
What can only responsible for this is the blocking of the drain pipe of the washing machine. Besides, it is very possible that the drainage pump that carried away the water is blocked. Now remove and wash it. Ensure that the belt of the drainage pump motor is not loosened otherwise, just tighten it.
- There are leakages in the water tub.
Examine every hose connected to the washing machine as well as the drainage pump.
- The washing machine fails to stir or rotate.
It may be as a result of the entangling of many cloth fabrics inside the agitator. Clear it off. It may occur as a result of difficulties in the driver belt, motor or disjointed leads to the agitator.
- Washing machine refuses to spin for drying clothes.
This occurs as a result of the problem arising from the drivers’ belt lid switch, time or the solenoid which control the agitator. Occasionally, it may occur because of clothes overload, so try to reduce the load and repeat it.
- Washing Machine problems and faults
Each and every machine is unique and therefore the number of different faults are almost endless. However, as a company which carries out hundreds of repairs each week we know which faults occurs more often than others. Doesn’t matter whether you have a washing machine in Nairobi, or another part of the country, they can all develop faults. Here are some of the common faults:
- Washing Machine does not start
We have a guide on the common issues for when a washing machine won’t start but there are numerous faults which could cause this from no power going through to the machine to a faulty sensor.
- Washing Machine does not Spin
If your appliance, such as a Bosch washing machine, won’t spin, check to see if there’s an unbalanced load inside the appliance and if it’s level on the surface.
- Washing Machine is not Filling with Water
If your washing machine isn’t filling with water the issue could be with the hoses, filters, or even the pressure chamber. This is something which would require troubleshooting by a technician.
- Washing Machine does not Drain
Regularly check to see if the filters are clean. Usually, they can be found on the bottom of the appliance.
