Repair of washing machines requires additional financial costs. To avoid technical malfunctions, make sure the appliances are properly connected to all utilities. Consider the key points that should not be overlooked during diagnosis.
Puddles under or behind the washing machine appear as a result of insufficient fixation of the hoses. Start by checking the machine’s connection to the water and sewage system. Draw water and drain it several times to identify the leak. After 2 to 3 hours, re-inspect the connections. There is likely to be a small leak that builds up later and can cause serious damage.
The hoses are not pinching.
If the drain hose runs under the tub or sink, make sure it is not kinked. Bends are the cause of low head. It is possible that because of this, the water will not flow into the washer at all. The hose connected to the sink’s U-bend should be elevated about 10 cm. Otherwise contaminated water will get into the washing machine. Clogs are also characteristic of pipes through which water is poured into the washing machine.
The water supply hose is over-tightened.
A lot of tension causes the rubber seal between the valve and the hose to cut. You can tighten it with your finger, and then you need to tighten it a little more. The main thing is not to apply excessive force. Otherwise, the components will be damaged.
Test wash without laundry
Run the washing mode, without loading things. You can choose absolutely any program. When the drum is filled with water, the wash will begin. Cancel the cycle to make sure the drainage is effective. Now you know how to connect the washing machine. Proper connection to the main utilities is the key to the long life of the technique. Therefore, carefully follow all recommendations.
Tips for servicing appliances:
– leave the hatch door open after washing to allow the machine to dry out;
– flush the powder compartment regularly under running water;
– Clean all drain system components;
– Replace worn parts in a timely manner;
– Clean the heating element with citric acid to prevent limescale buildup.
These simple recommendations will help to prolong the service life of the machine.
