KitchenAid washing machine repair issues we can fix
Whether you have a front-load washer, top-load washer, or combination unit, the experts at Sears Home Services can perform KitchenAid washing machine repairs whether your problem is big or small.
A service call involves diagnosing the appliance's malfunction and making repairs quickly. A repair technician can also recommend routine maintenance to extend your washer's life.
Washing machine shaking or vibrating
Excessive shaking or vibrating could indicate several problems, including something as minor as a bulky clothing item sticking to one side of the tub wall or adjusting the feet to level the machine.
There could also be more significant issues with your KitchenAid washer that require a repair technician, such as worn or failed shock absorbers or drive parts or tub bearings that are water damaged from a broken seal.
Washing machine leaking water
If water is pooled at the front or back of your KitchenAid washer, the hot and cold water supply lines and the drain line could be poorly connected, blocked, or need replacement.
If it's a front-loading washer, the door seal might have failed. A clogged water pump filter can cause leakage, or the water pump itself could have failing seals and need to be replaced.
If your KitchenAid washer won't drain, it could be as minor as a kinked or clogged drain hose. But more serious problems could be at hand, including a faulty lid switch, water level control, drain pump, or drive belt.
Washing machine not spinning
When a KitchenAid washer won't spin, the problem could be simple such as an overloaded drum or an improper load balance. Poor draining (see previous) can also prevent the spin cycle from initiating.
The washer could also have failed parts, such as the lid switch, a failed motor or spin solenoid, or a frayed or broken belt.
Washing machine not filling with water
If your inlet lines are receiving water and have not become kinked, there could be a clogged inlet screen on one of the hoses. Barring those problems, your KitchenAid washer could be in need of a new inlet valve, lid switch, pressure switch, temperature selector, or even an electronic control board.
Annual washing machine maintenance
Scheduling regular appliance service ensures your KitchenAid washer will work efficiently and effectively. It can also prevent costly, unexpected repairs over time and extend the life of your appliance.
When you request the Washer and Dryer Clean & Maintain package, your Sears Home Services technician will inspect both appliances for proper functioning, wear and tear, excess noise, and water and gas leaks, while also cleaning internal components.

KitchenAid washing machine repair FAQ
How long should a KitchenAid washing machine last?

Is it worth repairing a KitchenAid washer?
If your washer is less than 10 years old and the repair is less than half the cost of a new washing machine, it's typically more economical to repair the appliance.
How much does it cost to repair a KitchenAid washer?
Costs for a KitchenAid washer repair can vary by the type of issue, and the parts and time required to complete the service. The average washing machine repair costs $200 to $265.

While you might use the owner's manual to troubleshoot some basic problems with your KitchenAid washer, it's often best to contact a certified Sears Home Service repair technician to diagnose the problem.
