5 Main Washer Issues And Solutions – Guide

These tips and hints will help you solve your most difficult washing machine problem.

Is your washer causing a halt in the middle of a cycle? Are you hearing strange or unusual vibrations or sounds? These are just some of the common washer problems technicians can solve every day. 

These are the most common problems that can cause washers to go kaput.

Problem #1: Washer makes strange vibrations or sounds.

Likely Curt: Tub bearings could have been damaged by water from a leaky seal. They may need to be replaced.

Problem #2: Washer stops or won’t start mid-cycle.

Likely Curt: If the door or lid switch is damaged, it might need to replaced. If something is caught on it, it can wear down or break.

Problem #3: Water won’t drain.

Likely Cause: It may be necessary to replace the drain pump. It can become worn out or damaged by hard objects being washed in the wash. To be certain, check the connection of the drain hose to the drain pipe.

Problem #4: The spin cycle isn’t producing water.

Likely Cause: It might be necessary to replace the drain pump. You might find it is old or damaged from something being left in a garment during a wash cycle. To be certain, check the connection of the drain hose to the drain pipe.

Problem #5: The basket won’t or isn’t spinning fast.

Likely Cause: If the washer’s base is making a loud rattling noise, it might be time to replace the motor coupler. The coupler’s lifespan will be cut if the washer is overloaded.
