If you are not an experienced technician yourself, chances are that you may not know when your washer needs to be repaired or replaced completely. But, there are warning signs of an impending breakdown that you should watch out for. Knowing these signs will help you start saving for a new laveuse LG instead of wasting your money on useless repairs. These signs include the following:
A leaking washer is often a result of overflowing or a loose connection. If your current washer is old, it may be using the same amount of water for each size load. It is important to take steps to reduce leaking by determining the size of the load you can fit into the machine while still have some room for turning. As you save up for a new washer, check if the pipe tightening or replacement hose can deal with the issue for you. If not, contact a technician to identify if the cracked tub causes the leak. If this problem takes place, you must purchase a new washer as soon as you can.
While an excessive noise can mean the machine is unbalanced, you should not shrug it off as a simple problem. This still indicates something is wrong and you must take action before it results in something worse. You can fix this by stopping the wash cycle and rearranging the clothes to ensure even distribution. But, this only works if you have a top-loading machine. A more permanent fix is to reposition the machine to make sure all feet are on a level surface. If these options do not work, contact a technician to check what can be fixed and the cost to do so. The technician can better assess whether you must start looking for a new washing or put off.
The Drum Doesn’t Fill Up
This could mean there is a delayed cycle selection, a hot and cold water faucet issue, or a kink in the hose. Another problem you may encounter with the drums is when it fills with water; however, it does not turn as it should. For this problem, you must check the lid switch and belts to make sure they are working as they should be. While it is easy to replace belts, a malfunctioning lid switch can take more work. Depending on the age of your machine and the replacement costs, it might be a better idea to buy a new washer if you encounter this sort of problem.
