The main advantage of an automatic washing machine is that it can independently carry out the washing process from start to finish, without the help of the user. The presence of a person is not only not required, but can even be dangerous for the machine or the user himself. That is why manufacturers of such equipment equip the door of the washing machine hatch with a special lock that does not allow opening the door until the end of the cycle.
However, there are times when users for some reason need to stop the washing machine to fix something. How to do this, and stop the washing machine without damaging its parts. As a rule, a premature stop of the washing machine is needed only in cases when you put extra things in the machine or forgot to put something.
If you have such a situation, set the control knob to the “stop”, “spin” or “drain” position. It all depends on what exactly the manufacturer of your machine model recommends. The spin or drain function will help to release the water collected in the device. This is very important because, in some models of washing machines, the lock remains as long as there is water in their tank. After the water is pumped out of the device, the machine will unlock in a minute or half a minute, as after the end of a normal washing cycle. After that, you can add something to the things in the machine or remove something from them.
Many people are interested in the question of how to stop the machine so that after a break it continues to execute the previously set program again, and does not start washing from the beginning. Manufacturers of washing machines have provided for such situations when power outages may occur during washing. In such cases, after the power is restored, the machine resumes operation and continues to execute the program set by the user, spending only a little time heating the water. You can make a similar situation by simply pulling the plug out of the socket of the machine, and after carrying out the necessary operations, insert it back.
This method can be used only in some cases, for example, if you urgently need to go somewhere, and you do not want to leave the running washing machine in the house. Please note that such actions should not be performed very often, only in very rare and desperate situations, as this can lead to the failure of important parts of the equipment.
