Washing Machine repair
The history of washing machines dates back to the earliest civilizations, as people tried to find the best ways to wash their clothes. Initially, the Greeks and Romans used animal power and simple machines powered by humans to clean their clothing. However, the first known washing machines to use mechanized force were developed in England in 1782. Early machines were wooden boxes filled with water with a hand-powered rotor, similar to modern manual clothes washers.
Later, in the 1880s, rotary machines powered by electricity replaced manual washers in many homes, but they had difficulty draining. The electric washing machine became commercially available in the early 1900s, introducing different types of washers. Early models relied on rubbing action instead of the modern agitators. Some washing machines still used a wringer system for extracting the water out of the clothing. By the 1950s, electric washing machines dominated the market. By the 1990s, companies started adding washing features, like adjustable washing temperatures, pre-wash treatments, and better draining, to meet customer demands.
Today, washing machines offer more settings, capabilities, and convenience, ranging from small portable devices to commercial-grade laundry machines with large-scale washing, drying, and disinfecting capacity. As a result, washing machines have changed from a necessary chore to a central part of any modern lifestyle.
Have a broken washer machine in your laundry room? If you have experience repairing appliances, the best way to tackle a washing machine repair is to disconnect the power to the washing machine and determine the issue. Common problems with washing machines include blocked or broken drainage systems, faulty electrical switches, and door interlocks, problems with thermostats and sensors, issues with water pumps, broken drive belts, jammed agitators, and the build-up of mold or mildew on the rubber seals.
Depending on the issue, you can usually start your repair process by inspecting and cleaning or replacing the following parts:
-Electrical components (motors, switch, contactor)
-Water supply line
If the washing machine isn’t functioning, some more specialized components may be needed to consider repairing, including timer circuits and motherboard parts. Depending on your repair, you may also require special tools to get into the tight spaces and areas of the machine. Also need manuals, diagrams, and wiring schematics to complete the repair and correctly reassemble the washing machine.
