There are many common problems that can occur with a washing machine. If your machine is not filling with water or draining, this can be due to issues with the pump or with the inlet or outlet hoses. If you clearing the hoses does not help, call a professional. If a noisy or rattling drum, check for things that may have got into the machine from pockets such as coins, keys, etc. If this is not the cause, the drum bearings likely need replaced. If the drum is not turning, the cause could be drive belt issues, a faulty unit or motor, or the drive belt. In these cases, the parts will likely need replaced.
Many modern machines have ‘inbuilt reporting’, that is, they will have fault codes which will be displayed on the dashboard. Your operating manual will explain what these codes mean and, in many cases, how to solve the issue yourself. But more serious faults will require a qualified home appliance repair engineer to examine the machine and fix it. But even with the simpler codes, they can be notice of something beginning to go seriously wrong, so we urge customers never to ignore these codes. Fixing something quickly could be inexpensive and save you from a pricey repair later.
If you have a separate drying machine, there are several things that can go wrong. If the door won’t close properly, the dryer won’t start and the door switch will probably need replaced. Dryers contain a number of different thermostats to regulate the various temperatures. If you notice that your appliance is not operating at correct temperatures, one or more of these may need replaced. Other problems which may need replaced include faulty start switches/buttons, shorted thermal fuses, and issues with the blower wheel.
