Technology and machinery has made our work very easy. With modern machines and technology it just takes few minutes to complete the job and that too with considerably reduced efforts. Modern machines like washing machine, vacuum cleaner, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerators, mixers etc have made our work very easy and convenient. But these machines too fall ill and need treatments. Washing machine is one of the most frequently used domestic appliances. The machinery which is regularly used suffers the maximum risk of wear and tear and needs to be fixed up frequently. But if one has little and basic knowledge about how to fix your washing machine without taking any outside technical support, then one can have pleasure using his machine.
Here are some of the common faults encountered in our washing machines and their possible remedies in the simplest way are also discussed. By following them one can have trouble free washing. At first instance it may sound a little complicated to repair the washing machine all by yourself but it is not that complicated and difficult as it sounds to be. Your washing machine which washes your clothes in few minutes is not just a tub full which spins, drains and washes clothes but it involves many other different parts which makes it function properly. It consists of water inlet valve for cold and hot water, motor, temperature controller, water level control unit, a timer, wash cycle selector, a large belt which rotates the wash tub, drain line and lots more. The washing machine is basically of two types, front load and top load. The agitator runs the tub in the top load type while in front loaded machines, the whole tub rotates.
To troubleshoot any problem, the basic lies in the root of the problem. This means first observe and find out the affected area and what problem does the machine have. If water is not coming in the tub then look for the inlet valve and fix it if it suffers any problem. Spinning problem is the most common trouble faced by most washing machines. In case your wash tub does not spin then reduce the load as this may be perhaps because of the overloading of clothes or filling less water than the desired level. The possible problem may be with the motor, belt and washer, usually belt slips from its position and the tub stops rotating. Sometimes water does not drain out this may be because of the drain pump or pipe.
Leakage in the tub invites various other troubles like your machine will stop taking load and may also damage the motor or other parts because of leakage. But at the end no repair guidance can replace technical help and advice hence never feel shy in seeking any. In fact when you do not have enough knowledge and confidence then never poke your nose into something which you don’t know. This may worsen the situation.
