Magic Chef washing machine repair issues we can fix

Magic Chef manufactures front-load washers, top-load washers and combination units. Some have analog controls while others are controlled with electronics. The experts at Sears Home Services can perform repairs on all types of washing machines.

When you schedule a service call, our technician will diagnose the Magic Chef washer's malfunction and make repairs quickly. A repair technician can also recommend routine maintenance to give your washer a longer life.

Washing machine shaking or vibrating

Minor adjustments will sometimes cure excessive shaking or vibrating. The problem could simply be a bulky clothing item sticking to one side of the tub wall. Perhaps you just need to adjust the feet to level the machine.

If basic troubleshooting steps don’t fix the washer, vibration problems could stem from more significant issues with your Magic Chef washing machine such as faulty shock absorbers or drive parts, or a tub bearing that is water damaged because of a broken seal.

Washing machine leaking water

When you find water pooled in front or back of your Magic Chef washer, check the hot and cold water lines and the drain line for poor connections, blockages, or wear and tear.

If the lines aren't leaking, it's time to call a repair expert. It could be a failed door seal on a front-loading washer. A clogged water pump filter can cause leakage, or the water pump itself could have blockage or failing seals and need to be replaced.

Washer won’t drain

A minor problem such as a kinked or clogged drain hose can cause your Magic Chef washer to not drain properly. But it could also be a more serious problem such as a faulty lid switch, water level control, drain pump, or drive belt.

Washing machine not spinning

Overloading the washer or having clothes accumulate on one side of the drum can cause a Magic Chef washer to stop spinning.

If adjusting the size or balance of the load doesn't get it rotating, there could be a faulty part such as the lid switch, a failed motor or spin control relay, or a frayed or broken belt. Poor draining (see previous) can also prevent the spin cycle from starting.

Washing machine not filling with water

First, make sure water is flowing to your inlet lines. Check for a kinked or damaged line, or you could have a clogged inlet screen at the end of one of the lines. Barring those relatively small problems, your Magic Chef 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

Conducting regular maintenance can help ensure your Magic Chef washer continues to perform 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 some internal components.
