How To Fix Your Washer
Repairing your washer may seem like a daunting repair, but with our help it’s actually pretty easy! Select your symptom from the list below to get started on your repair.
A noisy washing machine can mean a lot of things. Diagnose the problem by checking the pump and pump motor, drive motor or belt, shock absorbers, dampening strap, and more.
Firstly, check the hoses in the machine for breaks. Then, check the pump and gaskets for leaks. If you haven’t found the problem, you may need a new water level switch.
Will not start
If the washer does not start, troubleshoot the problem by checking the knobs, door switch, start switch. A broken drive motor and control board could also be the problem.
Will not agitate
A washer that won’t agitate is aggravating. Try replacing the agitator, drive belt, or the peripheral parts such as the agitator directional cogs or coupler.
Timer will not advance
If the timer on the washer is not advancing, there could be a damaged water inlet valve, drain pump, water level control, or a simple fix like a faulty knob or dial.
Pumps but does not spin
If your washer fills and drains but does not spin, the direct drive motor coupling may need replacing. The direct drive motor coupling transfers power from the motor to the transmission.
Shakes and moves
A broken shock absorber or suspension spring are the prime suspects in a washer that shakes and moves. We can show you how to fix this problem.
Will not fill with water
When the washer is failing to fill itself, the water supply could be interrupted. Check the inlet hoses and screens, as well as the water inlet valve.
Lid or door will not open
A faulty door latch or door lock will keep the washer lid from opening. There could also be a problem with the hinges or the door strike. Find out how to fix it here!
A burning smell is most likely caused by too much friction somewhere in the machine. Check the drive belt, drive motor, and any other moving parts.
Fills and drains at the same time
A washer that fills and drains simultaneously will most likely need a new water inlet valve, or water level switch. Here’s how to fix it.
Will not stop filling with water
If the washer can’t stop filling itself with water, you most likely have a faulty water inlet valve or water level switch.
