My Washing Machine won’t drain!

  Panic stations!!  My washing machine wont drain the water and wont spin either.  We hear this nearly every day in the office. Most times the cause is a simple blockage so before calling out a technician; have a look at the coin trap or filter which in most machines is accessable from the front of the machine located at the bottom. You may need to drain the water from the machine initially so that you dont have a large puddle on the floor when you open it. If your machine in an integrated type you will have to remove the kickboard in front of the machine too first. Having drained it manually simply unscrew the filter cover and point a torch into the chamber to see if there is a blockage. We come across all sorts of things in there including coins, hairclips, keys, socks and jewellery to mention just a few. Once removed you shoulf then turn the machine on to a drain only cycle to see that the pumps impellor is spinning. If it is then you can happily screw the filter cover back in and thats it. Job...

Washing Machine Drum Paddle Repairs at Home

Should your kid find their way into the washing machine; Its possible the drum paddles or lifters may get broken but happliy its not that hard to fit new ones! You can buy these parts easily and fitting just takes a bit of know how; so heres how…first remove any old broken parts inside the drum and carefully examine the openings to make sure they are still flat. They will need some attention if buckled or protruding. Locate the new paddles plastic feet to meet the bigger side of the openings and push down firmly. Then using some force push the paddle forward until it is fully in and wont move any more. Repeat for the other lifters and then examine the edges to ensure they have sat into place correctly. Thats it. Cant think of any brand thats not got these however some brands mould them into the drum shape when manufacturing so even if your child climbs in these should stand the trauma lol.  Washing Machine Drum Paddle Repairs at...
