“How to diagnose a broken washing machine”by Simi Valley Appliance Repair

 

1.Check to see whether you have a leak

  1. If a leak is present it will be likely that the discharge hose is the culprit
  2. Two hoses are part of the draining system. Check as it washes to verify the clamps and hoses are in working order.

 

2.Verify to see if there are any gaskets worn or missing.

  1. This would cause water to gush out from the top of the wash compartment during the spin cycle.
  2. Leaks account for more than 57% of washing machine problems.

Check to see if the belt is worn or has become loose

  1. After turning the washing machine, push in on the belt with a straight edge. Hold the straight edge between two certain points on the belt.
  2. The belt should not deflect more than half an inch. The belt needs to be tightened if it deflects more than that.
  • The belt should not deflect more than half an inch. The belt needs to be tightened if it deflects more than that.
  • Tighten the belt if you are able. Otherwise calling Simi Valley appliance repair is the only option.

 

Diagnosing Electrical Problems

 

  1.      You might want to call a professional to perform this due to the danger of electrical shock. There are a couple of things you can try, however, without special digital equipment that is unavailable to the average DIY’er.
  2.       Make sure to test the safety switch attached to the door. Open the washing machine door. You will find it near the bottom front. You will find a plastic post pointing down that aligns with a hole in the entrance of the opening.
  3. If it is the safety switch causing the issues then reset it and your machine should be as good as new.

If you have tried the above steps and still can’t find a solution then you best bet is to call Simi Valley Appliance Repair.
