Some washing machine repair tips
If your washing machine suddenly stops working it puts you in a difficult situation. Paying for a washing machine repair technician to come by your home to take a look at it can be expensive, but without it you’re stuck having to go to a laundromat which is usually an aggravation. Not only that but you probably have a load of clothes half clean in the washing machine already which are covered with soap.
Before you call away for a washing machine repair service you should take a look at it yourself in case it’s an easy fix. First of all, do you remember any kind of noise or smell when the washing machine stopped working? A burning smell might indicate that the motor or transmission burned out and would need replacing. Unfortunately replacing a motor or a transmission is a more involved repair so you may need to call a washing machine repair specialist for this one.
If you can take off the cover to the washing machine you should be able to see a motor with some belts on it. Washing machine belts are designed to be the weakest part of the machine so that when something goes wrong you break the belt instead of breaking the motor. Replacing a belt is much less expensive than a motor and is actually something that you can probably replace yourself provided you’re able to find a replacement belt.
When it comes to washing machine repairs, there really aren’t that many parts that could go wrong with a washing machine. Most repairs simply involve the motor, the transmission or a belt. Aside from those three parts a washing machine is pretty much just a tub with a timer on it and there isn’t much than can go wrong with those parts.
