Is Your Broken Washing Machine Repairable?

Nothing can be more frustrating than to be in the midst of doing chores around the house when all of a sudden a particular modern convenience stops running.   It could be the vacuum cleaner, dishwasher, coffee maker, etc.  Most frustrating of all is perhaps the washing machine going kaput.

What is the Washing Machine Not Doing?

The first step towards a diagnosis and deciding whether the washing machine repair is doable, after reminding yourself to breathe, is to determine what's not happening.  Is the tub not filling with water? Is the drum no spinning? Is there soap left on the clothes when they come out? The more specific you can be about isolating the problem, the more time you can save your repair person (and the more money you'll save yourself in labor costs).

Strategies

There are a number of strategies one can consider to determine if the washing machine repair can be accomplished.  You can call a washer repair person like those at Anderson's Appliance Repair Service, call a neighbor, or read the user's manual and see what you can do yourself.  The best strategy at this point is to try basic actions.  Those actions include checking the power plug or the breaker box. You might find a possible solution by searching online, although many washer repair techniques can get complicated and you wouldn't want to damage a piece of equipment that's so expensive by tinkering with it. 

Answer

After you hit return or click on the search icon, you will be rewarded with a number of websites that will address your question. As an added bonus, there may be videos produced to help the frustrated non-working washer owner. Other websites may add to this and suggest unplugging and plugging your power cord and then lifting the washer's lid a number of times within a set period of time to provide a reset for the machine.  Another specific suggestion as to why the machine is not spinning is because the timing is out of sync.  The website offers a simple solution by taking the control dial off and realigning.

Bottom Line

So the question of whether a washer repair can be accomplished is threefold.  The first question is: what is the problem?  The second question is: can the owner or someone they know or a washer repair person fix it? The third question revolves around finances and whether it is worth it to fix or have replaced.
