let us troubleshoot for you
There are a few things you can do to try and troubleshoot these problems on your own before calling in a professional. If you don’t feel comfortable inspecting your washing machine, Platinum Mechanical Services is happy to help.
We keep our service vehicles stocked with all the most commonly failed parts. This means we can often diagnose and repair your washer in as little as one visit.
If your washer isn’t filling with water, check to make sure the water valve is turned on all the way. If it is and the problem persists, there may be a clog in the water inlet valve.
If that isn’t the issue, the home may have low water pressure, which can cause issues with your washer filling properly.
Note that when many homeowners switch to an HE or high-efficiency washing machine for the first time, the water level seems low. However, this is probably normal, as HE machines use less water than their traditional counterparts.
If you notice that your washing machine is making loud noise, you know how unpleasant it can be. Luckily there’s a quick fix that might solve the problem. Before you call for washer repair in Chicago, check to see that the load is balanced in the wash tub. Spread your items around the agitator evenly so that the tub isn’t overloaded on one side.
If that isn’t the cause of this pesky problem, contact our experts. We may find one of the following causes:
- Defective Tub Bearing
- Faulty Tub Seal and Bearing
- Worn Out Drive Pulley
- Broken Belt Kit
If you notice that your clothes are sopping wet after a wash cycle, it may be that your washer isn’t spinning properly. If your washer won’t spin, it can’t remove excess water from your laundry.
Some common causes for a washer that won’t spin include:
- Failed Lid Switch Assembly
- Broken or Loose Drive Belt
- Failed Motor Coupling
If you see that there is standing water in your washing machine after a cycle, it’s likely that your washer isn’t draining properly. A clog somewhere in the washer may be to blame.
Some of the most common diagnoses we make for this issue are:
- Clogged Drain Pump
- Clogged Pump or Hose
- Defective Door Lock Motor & Switch Assembly
- Defective Lid Switch Assembly
- Broken Water Pump Belt
