What Are the Most Common Washer Failures Handled by Houston Appliance Repair?
Any type of washing machine failure is distressing. Some washer problems occur more frequently than others.
Here’s a list of the most common washing machine repairs that our techs face in the Houston area.
Why Is an Error Code Flashing On My Washer?
Modern washers are much more complicated to diagnose and repair than washers of old. You’ll see electronic controls and digital displays on most models nowadays. Electronically-controlled washers often signal an error code when something goes wrong. A Houston Appliance Repair Tech can visit your home and determine what caused the error code.
Why Won’t My Washing Machine Drain the Water Out?
A clog in the drain hose, a backup in the house drain system or bad drain pump can prevent the washing machine from draining out the water during the cycle. A control failure or wiring problem can also leave your washer full of water.
When your washer won’t drain, have a service technician examine your machine and find out what’s wrong. Our Houston Appliance Repair Technicians are experts at repairing washer drain problems.
Why Isn’t My Washer Filling?
Components that control your washer filling with water include the main electronic control board (or timer), the door lock assembly, the washer lid switch and the electronic temperature control board. Don’t be left guessing at which of these parts you should replace. Have a Houston Appliance Repair Technician visit your home and diagnose the fill failure in your washing machine. Our washer repair experts will have your washer up and running in no time.
Why Doesn’t My Washing Machine Work at All?
When your washer is completely unresponsive, start by following the troubleshooting tips in the owner’s manual. Rule out the obvious–is it unplugged? Did the circuit trip?
If the electrical power supply is okay, you may need to replace the main control board or the user interface board. We recommend that you have a service technician test the washing machine control board and user interface board or the washer timer before replacing control components. Testing the controls typically requires live voltage checks. We don’t recommend that you perform live voltage check on your washer yourself because those tests are dangerous. Our Houston Appliance Repair technicians are experts at testing washer controls and replacing the right parts to get your washer going again.
What Can I Do to Keep My Washer From Breaking Down?
Following the use and care instructions in the washer’s owner manual will help keep the washing machine from breaking down. Don’t overload the washer and use the right type and amount laundry detergent.
Follow the installation instructions for setting up the drain system of the washer so the drain pump and drive components work properly and don’t break down.
To keep your washing machine in top shape and help avoid costly repairs, schedule an annual washer maintenance check and cleaning.
