3 Common Washing Machine Problems

What would we do without our washing machines? Well, we’d probably have to wash our clothes by hand or drag them all to a local laundromat. Nobody that owns a washing machine should have to do that! But just like any other appliance, washing machines don’t last forever and can develop problems after regular use. Here are three of the most common washing machine problems.


Water Is Not Draining

One of the most common problems any owner of a washing machine will eventually face is that the water is not draining from the drum. A clogged drain hose, faulty pump, or blocked filter can be the cause of this. An appliance repair professional can check these components for you and help to resolve the issue.

Leaking Water

If you notice water pooling around your washing machine, it’s a clear sign that something is wrong. The most common causes of leaks are a damaged door seal or a cracked hose. Contact a professional to help you diagnose the issue. Attempting to fix anything on your own could result in making the problem worse.

Strange Noises

If your washing machine makes unusual noises during any part of the wash cycle, there’s most likely a problem that needs to be addressed as soon as possible. A common cause of this problem is a faulty drum bearing. Expert appliance technicians are very familiar with this type of issue and can help to repair it quickly. However, if your problem isn’t a faulty drum bearing, they will be able to identify the cause of the sound and suggest the best way to resolve it.


For these or any other types of washing machine problems, it’s always best to leave it to the pros. Give Express Appliance Service a call for all your appliance needs.
