Ok I wanted to go over the five most common problems with washing machines with you the number one most often problem with washing machines is a washing machine that doesn’t drain or spin most often caused by a broken lid switch you should hear a click as this goes into place If you don’t hear that click then your or if your washing machine is not going into its final cycles it’s most often this lid switch here sometimes you can just press on this right side and get it to engage the switch also occasionally you can just adjust the post a little bit uh…
so that the post will stick further into the switch which will engage the switch also sometimes you can’t just adjust the switch or tighten it up often it needs to be replaced I have a article on that second most often problem with washing machines often goes undetected something you’d probably want to check regularly is that your aggitator dogs are working properly what it should do is turn the bottom one-way or the other so this one is turning it like it should and the aggitator dogs are functioning now if it’s not doing that than your clothes are just getting rinsed they are not really getting washed it is an often missed problem with washing machines and its probably very common because the agitator dogs inside here are designed to break if someone’s arm was to get stuck in here or if something was to bind up tu much the aggitator dogs will actually strip on purpose as a safety mechanism third most common problem with washing machines is a clogged pump at the impeller sometimes a penny or a button or something else, a bobby pin whatever goes down the drain line and gets stuck at the pump.
Fourth most common problem is a leak. Most often leaks occur up on the left side.
Fifth most common problem is a washing machine out of balance.
Now the most often cause of the machine being out of balance is just a Dener of redistributing the clothes.
Usually a towel or something gets on one side and you hear the whump whump whump whump of the machine what you need to do is open the lid and than go ahead and readjust the clothing or go ahead and readjust the towel uh…
readjust the items in the bin to get a more balanced and then go ahead and run it again see if it works out and you have no more out of balance deal sometimes you could lose a spring most often times it’s just that the machines out of balance eventually I’ll have to make you a article explaining you how to reset the spring if it did come off there is three different shocks and then there is a spring that holds the machine basin in place now the way to check if your machine is still in balance is just ahead and run it empty with water let the water fill up if the machine finds its balance than you know it was just a Dener of the clothes or the laundry items being out of balance anyway that is the five most common problems with washing machines
