IS YOUR APPLIANCE ABOUT TO LET YOU DOWN?
Appliances cover laundry, cooking, floor care, refrigeration and dishwashing machinery. Sooner or later they will,
through natural wear and tear, overuse, faulty electrical components, etc., end up in the recycling
graveyard. The one appliance you’re most likely to have trouble with
is the one you can’t do without – the washing machine. Here follows some troubleshooting hints and tips to help you
– just in case.
If It Stops Mid-Cycle
First ensure that the plug hasn’t shaken itself free of the socket because of the vibrations. Try changing the fuse
in the plug. If that fails, see if the machine will work on another
program. If that doesn’t work, you may well need to call out your local bonded expert and HVAC

They’ll be on hand to rescue you with their 24-hour emergency plumbing service.
Make It Safe
If you’re still having no joy then just leave it alone. Don’t fiddle with it you may unwittingly void the warranty
covering it by not being a qualified engineer or technician. Check your warranty.
Switch the appliance off at the mains and remove the plug from the socket. When you switch off any electrical
equipment and the plug remains in the socket, electrically will still pass down to the appliance. The safest way is
to switch off and pull the plug out of the socket completely.
If you find your appliance doesn’t drain then the problem is likely to be a blocked filter. Remember to drain the machine before removing the filter otherwise you may flood
your kitchen or utility room. If you manage to find the filter and discover that it isn’t blocked then you’re
likely to need professional help.
Door Refuses to Open
Another common and frustrating fault is when the washing machine door won’t open. This tends to occur when the
water hasn’t been pumped out. The safety locking mechanism prevents the door from opening when the drum is still
full of water. If the water has been pumped out and the door still won’t open, it may be due to a faulty door
Noisy Spin Cycles
Noisy spin cycles are usually caused by worn ball bearings inside the drum. One tip is to see if there are any rust stains under the machine. Nudge the
spindle to see if it is loose. If all is in order, then it could be that other parts are loose inside the machine.
Also check with a spirit level that it is standing evenly on the floor.
Probably the worst thing that can happen is when the washing machine floods the room it is in. If this happens,
first check that the drainage outlet isn’t blocked. See if the water
level control system is operating properly. If it isn’t, it may be the
cause of the washing machine overfilling and causing flooding. Broken seals, pump problems or a faulty door may lead to
