Do You Need A Professional For Your Faulty Washer?

If your washing machine has been having difficulty with noise or is showing signs of a leak, it might be time to get repairs done. Here are some common signs associated with faulty washers so you know when it is time to call in a professional for repairs.

It Makes a Lot of Noise

A very common sign that you have a faulty washing machine is when it makes more noise than usual during a typical cycle. If the noise is not coming from change that has fallen out of the pockets, then the noise is probably due to the machine itself. Any noise that is louder than normal or is something you haven't heard before is cause for concern. While it might not be something serious, such as a mount that is loose, you should still contact a professional for repairs.

The Drum Isn't Filling with Water

You may also notice that, when you turn on the washing machine, the water level in the drum is lower than it should be. This is going to cause issues when your clothes get washed, where the soap might not be completely rinsed or the clothes are not cleaned thoroughly. Before calling a professional, first check that the plumbing connections are intact. After you have done that, check the filter on the machine and make sure it isn't clogged. If you still can't find the issue, contact a professional.

The Rinsing Cycle Does Not Work

The rinse cycle on your washing cycle might also be having issues. A good way to tell this is if your clothing are soapy when they come out of the washing machine or if there are soap spots. This is a sign that the rinse cycle is not completing fully. It might also not be draining following the rinse cycle if when retrieving your clothing items, they feel sopping wet instead of ringed out.

There Is Leaking Water

You also have a faulty washing machine if you notice a puddle of water around the appliance after you use it. Even if it is a small amount of water, you should assume there is a problem and call a plumber or appliance repair professional. Hopefully, it is only a minor repair. In rare cases, it is a bigger problem, but leaks are often fixed without having to replace the entire washer.

Consult an appliance technician like http://www.LewisPlumbingSantaBarbara.com if you are still having issues with your washing machine.

About Me

Dump Trucks, Bulldozers and Cranes, Oh My!

Welcome to my blog. I'm Kara Montgomery. My entire life, I have had an obsession with construction. When I was a little girl, I had a whole set of construction equipment toys I'd play with. As I got older, I read so many books on construction. Even though I didn't follow construction as a career path, this has continued to be something I'm interested in and I thought it'd be fun to create a little blog that covers various construction topics. There is really no specific construction topic this blog will cover, so anyone who has an interest in the construction industry will find something of use.
