When the washing machine refuses to work, it scares many users, especially those who are not versed in household appliances and even more so in its technical condition. But you can understand any malfunction, even this one.
The occurrence of this breakdown may be indicated by such “symptoms” as:
– the “start” button is pressed, but the washing cycle is not performed;
– after pressing the “start” button, one indicator lighted up, but the machine does not work;
– after starting the device, all the indicators light up, but the washing cycle is still not performed.
The causes of such a malfunction are different, for example
– the “start” button is broken;
– filter or hatch lock device is out of order;
– lack of contact in the socket;
– damage to the circuit wires;
– broken control board, etc.
In order to eliminate such a problem, you first need to de-energize the mechanism and remove the plug from the socket. Next, check the electrical circuit of the device. To do this, use a tester to check the voltage and integrity of the wires. It is possible that the washing machine may not start due to a faulty outlet. To make sure of this, plug in some serviceable appliances. If it does not work, then you need to repair not the washing machine, but the socket. Also, if there is no contact in the old socket, this can also cause a lack of voltage in the machine. So try to pull the plug in the socket. Be sure to check the condition of the cable. After all, very often when the machine is working, the wire can be subjected to various loads, so it also needs to be checked with a tester.
The interference filter is also checked with a tester at the input and output. If the filter of the washing machine is not working, it must be replaced urgently. In order to check the status of the button, we ring the two wires that go to it. Do not forget that the device at this moment must be disconnected from the mains. During the operation of the washing machine, the wires may rub against the machine body or fall out of the mounting sockets. Therefore, you can check their condition even without a tester, just by inspecting them visually. If the circuit breaker is faulty, the indicator light may be on, but the machine will not work. If there is no voltage on such a mechanism, then it must be replaced.
