Common Washing Machine Issues
If you’ve noticed problems with your washing machine, we encourage you to take action fast by scheduling a repair. The sooner you identify and resolve the issue, the less likely further damages will be.
Turn to our technicians if you notice the following:
- Your washing machines is dead / won't turn on.
In most cases, this is caused by a tripped, off-balance switch from an imbalanced load that can be easily rectified by redistributing clothes. Otherwise, you may have a problem with the timer circuitry or your outlet, which our professionals can take care of.
- Your washing machine is not spinning properly or at all.
When clothes are soaked at the end of a wash cycle, it may indicate that the washer isn’t spinning. This could be due to a defective lid switch or lid plunger, burned out spin solenoid, damaged wires, broken or worn out drive belt, or a bad timer contact.
- There is no agitation.
There are many causes for no agitation including a worn drive belt, agitator assembly, wigwag plunger/lifter, transmission mode lever, or drive spindle. It may also be caused by a bad internal timer contact, bad lid switch, or malfunctioning pressure switch.
- Excessive vibration.
If you notice excessive vibration, your washer may not be leveled properly or could be located on a weakened wood floor. Worn damper pads or snubber pads may also be to blame.
- Your washing machine leaks.
Excess soap, loose hoses, drain pipe clogs, and leaking pumps, tubs, or tub water injection hoses could be to blame for leaks and other similar damage.
- Water is not draining properly.
Water will remain in the drum if you have a defective pump, worn drive belt, or clogged drain hose. When it doesn’t drain properly, it could lead to serious problems.
- There is no cold water.
The cold-water valve may be turned off or there may be sediment buildup in the valve.
- Wash cycles leave spots on clothes.
Spots that won’t remove with soap and water may cause by transmission oil from a defunct transmission.
- Wash cycles leave soap in clothes.
A defective timer contact or sediment-clogged cold-water valve may be the cause of excess soap left in your clothes.
