Meet Jane Evans

During college, I lived in a small, old house. My roommates and I loved it's cozy charm and, for the most part, didn't have any problems. However, one day, we noticed that the carpet in one of the bedrooms was wet--and it couldn't be dried. When we called our landlady and the repairman, they discovered that the shower not only needed to be re-caulked, but there was mold everywhere under the carpet. We had to move out for two weeks while they fixed the problem. Soon, thanks to the contractor (the likes of whom you can read about), we were back at home.

Signs Your Washing Machine Is In Need Of Repair

In many homes, the washing machine is one of the most regularly used appliances while simultaneously being the most reliable. Modern technology has made washing machines extremely resilient and able to absorb constant work under less than optimal conditions, but this toughness has also made it difficult for many people to identify when something serious is actually wrong.

Below, you'll find a guide to some signs that your washing machine is in need of repair. Keeping an eye out for these warnings can allow you to address a serious issue before it compounds into one that could require a replacement. And it will put you in a position to get the greatest possible performance out of your machine for many years to come.

Unusual Noises

In every home, the people who live there grow accustomed to the regular symphony of sounds that emanates from every direction. A variety of appliances make a variety of noises, so when there's a sudden change in those sounds, the difference is jarring and you're likely to notice in a hurry.

When your washing machine begins making unusual noises, it can be a sign of an imbalance that may proceed a serious mechanical fault. When your washer's drum is out of balance, the resulting physical force can throw the delicate internal components out of alignment and shut your machine down entirely.

Insufficient Drainage

The spin cycle of your washing machine is designed to drain excess water away from your clothes and allow it to run out the drain in the bottom of the wash tub. If you open your washing machine at the end of a cycle and find standing water waiting for you, you may have a serious problem.

Often times, clogs in washer drains are simple solutions that can be fixed without much consternation. However, if your drain pipe has been fractured, continued use of your machine could cause serious flooding in your home which may damage surrounding items as well as your floor and walls.

Inaccurate Cycles

Many modern washing machines are governed by an on board computer which selects from several pre-programmed cycle options to guarantee your clothes are treated exactly as you want them to be. When those cycles don't function correctly, however, you can find yourself dealing with damaged items and serious frustration. If your wash cycles don't appear to be operating in the way you've selected, you should schedule a washing machine repair appointment to make sure your machine's computer is still providing accurate data and governing the mechanical components effectively.
