Use of Washing Machines and Dryers

Use of Washing Machines and Dryers: The washing machine, a wonderful invention, has spared us from the arduous task of scrubbing our clothes on rocks or hand-washing them with gravel. Nowadays, in over 80% of households in the Arab Emirates, washing machines are a common sight, and the industry generates billions in revenue. But what do you do when your washing machine encounters issues? In this blog post, we’ll explore how to identify washing machine malfunctions and understand the repair process provided by the Ariston washing machine repair in Abu Dhabi.

Common washing machine problems and their solutions

Let’s dive into some typical washing machine problems and their solutions.

1. The washer door does not open.

The washer door does not normally open when the drum is filled with water. But what if it won’t open even after being filled with water? First, try setting the washing machine to a new wash programme so that it drains and you can open the door. Then check the drain and filter to make sure they are not clogged.

It is also possible that the washing machine is overheating, which can happen if you wash laundry one after another. When overheating, the washing machine may still run normally, but the washer’s sensor will not allow the door to open. Fortunately, overheating problems can usually be fixed by you. Let the appliance cool down and then try to open the door again.

If the appliance is not clogged or overheated and the door will not open even though there is no water in it, the cause may be a faulty door switch or control board. These internal components should be checked by a technician like at Ariston washing machine Repair Abu Dhabi.

2. The washer does not drain / the washer is clogged.

If the washing machine does not drain properly, the washer drain may be clogged. Clogged washing machine drains are usually caused by soap scum, lint from tumble dryers, items in pockets (paper towels, coins, etc.) or grease, oil and other substances on clothes.

First, check the filter for dirt. The filter is usually on the front of the washing machine and can be unscrewed. Remove any blockages. If the filter is free of blockages, check the hose. To do this, first empty the washing machine by hand. Then pull the washing machine from the wall and disconnect the power and hoses. Check the hoses for blockages and remove them.

If the washing machine still cannot be emptied, manually clear the washer drain of contaminants. To do this, remove the drain hose from the appliance, which is located at the back of most washing machines. After disconnecting the drain hose from the washing machine, disconnect another drain hose from the pipe. This hose is usually where the washing machine drain is clogged, as it is the main connection between the washing machine and the household sewage system. Once this drain hose is disconnected from the washing machine drain, you can remove the drain hose just like any other drain fitting.

Then set the washing machine on a short wash/rinse cycle. Once the clog is cleared, the water will drain and you can continue working. If it does not, either the clog has not completely cleared or there is a more serious problem that needs to be fixed by a technician (and may require a new appliance).

If the problem is still persist in Use of Washing Machines and Dryers then go to the technician.

3. The washing machine stinks

The accumulation of bacteria and dirt can cause the washing machine to smell. This usually happens if you only wash with cold water. Try running the wash programme with warm water first; this should help. If that doesn’t help, try this harmless mixture of ingredients:

  • ¼ cup of baking soda
  • ¼ cup of water
  • 2 cups white vinegar

Put the baking soda and water in the detergent container of your washing machine, put the white vinegar in the drum of your washing machine and run the wash cycle on high.

If the smell persists, check your washing machine’s filter. A lot of residue from clothes can build up in the filters.

Tip: Remove laundry immediately after washing to avoid odours. When the washing machine is not in use, leave the door open rather than closed to allow moisture to escape from the washing machine.

Have you noticed small holes in your clothes after washing? One of the easiest ways to prevent holes in your clothes during washing and drying is to sort them better before you wash them. This means not washing delicate clothes with heavy denim or clothes with zips and buttons. Lace and silk fabrics can get caught in zips and even buttons.
