About Washing Machine Service and Repair?
A washing machine is a machine that washes dirty clothes.This barrel is filled with water, and then rotated very quickly to make the water remove dirt from the clothes. Most washing machines are made so that detergent (liquids or powders) can be put into the machine. These can help make the clothes cleaner.
Here are some symptoms that do indicate you should get the machine looked at..
- Washing Machine Stops Spinning or Agitating

- Washing Machine Shakes During Operation
- Machine Leaks
- Device not starting

- Overfilling with water
- Burning smell coming from the unit
- The unit is filling and draining at the same time
- Won’t fill with either cold or hot water
- The door or lid is not opening
Even small leaks can cause shorts in the electrical parts of the washing machine
Unbalanced loads can make loud noises and coins rattling can be concerning, but those things can be easily remedied. If you hear other strange noises coming from your washing machine, have it serviced..
When you don't clean your washing machine, gunk made up of soap residue, fabric softener, minerals, and chemicals builds up, creating a thin film that can trap bacteria. As a result, bacteria-laden buildup can further move into the drum mechanism, thus preventing the water from getting hot so that it can do its job.
- Inspect the hoses every month or so, make sure there are no bulges or cracks and the fittings are tight.
- Don’t overload it, oversize loads can damage your washer, so break up your laundry into smaller loads.
- Use the right type of detergent.Make sure you’re using the right kind for your model.
- Use the right amount of detergent.Too much detergent will leave a residue and is hard on your washer

- Wipe down the drum, door and gasket, do this once a month

TIP! Every month or so, run an empty load of hot water with 2 cups of white vinegar. In the middle of the wash cycle, add ½ cup of detergent. Let the full cycle complete.
TIP! Use equal parts water and vinegar to clean the gasket when you wipe down the drum, door and gasket.
TIP! Run a service wash once a month on a hot wash (60C or higher) with no clothes or detergent in the machine. This will rid the machine of mould and bacteria.
