Most of the problems that you encounter with your washing machine can be easily dealt with by yourself by using the owner’s manual.

A noisy washer may mean a couple of things are not working properly with your washer. The main culprit to cause noise is the drain pump which has become either restricted or it is defective. The work of drain pump in a washer is to pump water from the wash tub before and also during a spin cycle. This pump be driven using a belt (belt driven), driven using a motor (motor driven), or has its own electric motor. Here it is advised removal of the front cabinet or front panel and try to locate the noise. Once you have verified the noise is actually coming from the pump, remove the inlet hose from to the pump but make sure first that power is disconnected from the washing machine.
Using bucket water is drained from the hose and the pump, after which we proceed to inspect the pump impeller for any signs of foreign objects that may be responsible for the noise. Also we check the pump impeller for any damages by turning it manually to make sure it is not distorted or worn out. If it is a front load washer we replace the damaged drain pump and motor, removing any foreign objects and then proceeding carefully to the tightening the hose clamps and finally checking for leaks, right before installing the front panel or cabinet.
Leaking of the washing machine is another common problem faced by owners’ of washers. If your washer is leaking is indicative there is a problem with your hoses. The washer has several types of hose but the most common are the drain and fill hoses. The fill hose are located at the rear of the washer and are responsible for connecting the household supply to the water inlet valve. Here we check to ensure the fittings (threaded) are securely tightened, and then we ensure the faucets are not causing the leaks. The other hose, that is, drain hose might not be properly and accurately installed into the household drain hence causing the leak. The drain hose may be restricted, causing backing up of the homestead drain through the stand pipe. Avoid sealing the drain hose opening in the stand pipe.
Finally the internal hoses can be defective and therefore creates a leak during the fill cycle. The internal hose is one that connects the inlet valve to the tub and can be accessed by lifting the main top or attentively removing the cabinet to inspect the internal hose. The leaking may be caused by abrasions or cracking of the internal hose due to normal wear and tear. If this is the case then the hose has to be replaced. On the same it will be prudent to check the other water inlet system, such as, the siphon break and the tub injection for any signs of leaks. The detergent dispenser has also to be check for leaks. Also checking of any perforated hose or corroded clamps is wise. Here we tackle all that leaving you with a leak free washer.
