Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What to do if I can’t open the door of my washer?
A. If you can’t open the washer door at the end of the cycle, you might have a faulty lock system. Many washers have a manual release which is accessible from under the door lock. Try opening the door this way before seeking professional help.
Q. What should I do if I hear squealing noises from my washer?
A. The problem might be the pump belt. The belt gets worn down and it can become frayed or even cracked. During the wash cycle, you may hear a thumping or squealing noise. Fortunately, a professional washer repair technician can quickly fix it.
Q. Should I use powder or liquid detergent?
A. It all depends on your personal preference and your needs. Each type of detergent has its own pros and cons. For example, if your clothes are often the victims of oil splashes, you may want to choose the powder detergent.
Q. Not all of the cycles work on my washer, Why?
A. Every washer has several wash cycle options, and you need to figure out which cycle is not working. For instance, if your water heater is faulty, it can make the hot wash cycle problematic. The heater will need to be replaced before you can use this cycle again.
Q. How to clean my washer?
A. You can run a couple of cycles with bleach and hot water and you can also use water to clean the rubber seal around the lip of the washing machine. There are also a lot of natural methods you can choose to get rid of the hard stains.
Q. What should I do if my washer is leaking?
A. The door is the source of the most common washing machine leaks. The problem could be a worn or damaged door seal. If the washer is leaking during a cycle, you might need to call a professional to run a full diagnosis and check all of the hoses.
Q. How to stop my washer from moving around?
A. This is a common problem that you should not ignore. The first thing to remember is to make sure that the floor on which your washer is placed is level. Next, you will need to adjust the legs of the washer to make sure that it too is level. You can also use some special pads under the legs to help absorb the vibrations and give the legs more grip to reduce movement.
Q. What should I do if my washer is not filling properly with water?
A. If your washer’s filters are clogged, you will experience the problem. You can clean the filters first. If the problem persists, you might need to contact your local repair technician for professional assistance.
Q. Why does my washer have a bad smell?
A. The bad washer smells come from the bacteria or mold inside the appliance. Add some vinegar and baking soda to your washer and run a wash cycle. This will help clean out the cause of the smell. To prevent your washer from stinking, you should use minimal fabric softener and run regular cleaning cycles with vinegar and baking soda.
Q. What to do if my washer does not drain?
A. A clogged drain pump is the top cause of this problem. The hose could also be clogged so you might need to clean it. If this does not resolve the problem, you will need to contact your local washer repair technician to seek professional help.
Q. Why is my washer not spinning?
