Common Washing Machine Issues

If you’ve noticed problems with your washing machine, we encourage you to take fast action. The sooner you identify and resolve the issue, the less likely further damages will occur.

Turn to our technicians if you notice the following:

  • Your washing machines is dead / won't turn on.

    In most cases, this is caused by a tripped, off-balance switch from an imbalanced load that can be easily rectified by redistributing clothes. Otherwise, you may have a problem with the timer circuitry or your outlet, which our professionals can take care of.

  • Your washing machine is not spinning properly or at all.

    When clothes are soaked at the end of a wash cycle, it may indicate that the washer isn’t spinning. This could be due to a defective lid switch or lid plunger, burned out spin solenoid, damaged wires, broken or worn out drive belt, or a bad timer contact.

  • There is no agitation.

    There are many causes for no agitation including a worn drive belt, agitator assembly, wigwag plunger/lifter, transmission mode lever, or drive spindle. It may also be caused by a bad internal timer contact, bad lid switch, or malfunctioning pressure switch.

  • Excessive vibration.

    If you notice excessive vibration, your washer may not be leveled properly or could be located on a weakened wood floor. Worn damper pads or snubber pads may also be to blame.

  • Your washing machine leaks.

    Excess soap, loose hoses, drain pipe clogs, and leaking pumps, tubs, or tub water injection hoses could be to blame for leaks and other similar damage.

  • Water is not draining properly.

    Water will remain in the drum if you have a defective pump, worn drive belt, or clogged drain hose. When it doesn’t drain properly, it could lead to serious problems.

  • There is no cold water.

    The cold-water valve may be turned off or there may be sediment buildup in the valve.

  • Wash cycles leave spots on clothes.

    Spots that won’t remove with soap and water may cause by transmission oil from a defunct transmission.

  • Wash cycles leave soap in clothes.

    A defective timer contact or sediment-clogged cold-water valve may be the cause of excess soap left in your clothes.
