Common Washer Dryer Combo Faults We Find in Southend-on-Sea
The Washer Cannot Power On
If you have found that your washer dryer combo won’t power on, firstly the problem could be with the power supply to the washer, or it could be the lid switch, or the timer knob or perhaps even the washer motor.
The first thing you want to do when you find that your washer dryer combo is not powering on is to check your home’s electrical panel. This is because there could have been a tripped circuit breaker.
If there are no tripped circuit breakers to be seen, you will next want to look at the electrical outlet itself. It’s important to note that if you do find a problem with the electrics in your house, do not try and carry out a DIY fix. This is incredibly dangerous to do and should be left to the professionals, no matter how much of a DIY-buff you are.
Alternatively, your washer dryer combo may have overheated. If this is the case, simply let the appliance cool before starting it up again.
Finally, you should check the appliance’s lid switch. This will be a small plastic switch which is located below the lid, that allows the washer to know that the lid is closed and it is safe to run. Some models simply won’t run if the appliance lid switch isn’t pressed down.
The Washer Won’t Drain
Poor drainage is another incredibly common problem with washer dryer combos, which can be a result of a clogged drain hose or a faulty drain pump.
Whilst, of course, with the right tools you may be able to unblock a drain hose yourself, yet a faulty pump will need a little more expert knowledge to sort.
This problem can be caused by stray socks, pens, coins, toys or other foreign objects that find their way into the machine, which lodge themselves in between the tub and the basket, blocking drainage. This will also be grounds for calling your local repairman.
Another reason as to why you are experiencing poor drainage could be as simple as using too much detergent. Look out for lots of suds in your washer and then try using less soap to see if the problem is resolved.
The Drum is Unable to Agitate
If your drum isn’t agitating your washing properly, the problem could be as simple as overloading or improper loading. If this is the case, all you need to do is make sure that you aren’t putting too many clothes in with each load and make sure that they are distributed evenly.
Not overloading the washer? Then, chances are that there is a problem with your lid switch, belts, drain pump or motor, and this is where you’ll need to get in touch with your local washer dryer combo repair specialist in Southend-on-Sea.
Your Washer Dryer Combo is Leaking
There is nothing worse than a leaking appliance, as, at the end of the day, the last thing you want is for it to cause lasting damage in your home.
Firstly, your problem could be with the amount of detergent you are putting in your washer dryer. Too much detergent could be causing the leak, so once more, make sure that you’re not putting in too much soap.
Otherwise, you could be facing a problem with your drain or fill hose, water inlet valve, drain pump, tub or tub seal.
The Whole Unit Shakes and Moves During a Cycle
A washer-dryer that dances across the room when it gets to the spin cycle indicates an unbalanced load. If you investigate that further and it appears this is not the case, then you should check whether your floor is level. If needed, create a level base for your washer dryer using wood, or adjust the appliance’s feet.
Clothes Take a While to Dry
If you have found that your clothes are taking an age to dry completely, check your lint filter. You’ll also want to check your dryer’s vent hose for blockages.
When lint builds up, along with other foreign objects that find their way into the wash, your vent hose can block, extending your drying time.
The Dryer Gets Too Hot
A dryer that is getting too hot is a massive hazard that you need to make sure is treated immediately, by a professional.
One cause could be an obstruction in the vent, which could be an easy DIY fix, or you could be facing problems with your heating coils or thermostat, which would require a repair specialist’s help.
If you suspect that your washer dryer combo is getting hotter than it should be, do not use the appliance until it has been properly checked over by an expert.
