Common Signs That Your Washer Needs Repair.

Each year, the average American family does nearly 300 loads of laundry, which adds to a lot of wear and tear on your washer. Whereas you can repair certain appliances yourself, not all washing machine troubleshooting is that simple. You may need the assistance of a repair service to fix your equipment properly. 
Although hiring a professional to repair your washer will cost you money doing the job yourself when you are not completely sure of the problem may cost you even more. 
Rather than going to the laundry mat or washing your clothes by hand, get the issue fixed as soon as possible. Look for these signs that you may need to call a professional
  • The washer makes excessive noise. If you're hearing a ton of noise while washing your underwear, socks and other apparel, your washer may be off balance. Try rearranging the clothes so they're evenly dispersed. If, after several attempts, rearranging clothes is not successful, try moving the washer so it's level and as close to the floor as possible. If this doesn't help, your drum or motor mount may be loose. The fix itself is easy, but accessing the drum or mount is tricky. You may want to call a washer repair service.
  • Water doesn't fill the drum. If the water isn't filling up, there are many possible causes, such as a kink in your hose, a delayed cycle selection or the hot and cold water faucets not being turned on. A clogged filter or a water intake valve may be to blame. When addressing these issues does not correct the problem, you may want to seek professional assistance.
  • The drum isn't turning. If the drum isn't spinning, try checking the belts and the lid switch. While the belt is fairly easy to replace, the lid switch is another story. This part requires a great deal of work to replace. If you're not completely sure how to do so, contact a professional.
  • Water remains in the drum. Once the laundry finishes its cycle, there should not be any remaining water. Check to see if clothing has tangled up and blocked the pump. You also may want to evaluate the drain hose for clogs. If these aren't the problem, the cause may be your water pump.

Laundry Tips
Stain Removal

Blood, Fresh & Dried
Rinse fresh blood stains in cold running water and rub with soap. Repeat. For dried stains, first scrape or rub off as much dried blood as possible. Soak in warm water using a product which contains enzymes. Wash. If this doesn't work, rewash the item using a chlorine-free bleach. In the case of stubborn stains, rust removers may be helpful.
Coffee, Tea
Presoak item in liquid detergent with bleach. Wash using the hottest water temperature that is safe for the fabric.
Dampen stain and rub with liquid detergent. Rinse, then wash.

Dingy White Socks
Presoak in a liquid detergent solution for a minimum of 30 minutes. Wash in a liquid detergent which contains oxygen bleach. Food Coloring Soak in cool water. If stain remains, rub on detergent and rinse. Wash.
Fruit Juice, Wine & Soft Drinks
Soak stain in cool water as soon as possible. Then, soak in an oxygen bleach, using the hottest water safe for the fabric. Wash.
Brush off as much as possible when garment is dry, then rinse under cold running water. Pretreat with a paste of powder detergent and water, or liquid laundry detergent. Wash using laundry detergent and a fabric-safe bleach.
Rust Stains
The yellow, orange or brown spots we sometimes find on our clothes may be caused by rust. Iron content of over .2 parts per million in your water supply can cause these type of stains, so it's important to have your water supply checked. Two possible sources can be rust water pipes or water heaters. One way to combat this problem is by using a mechanical water softener with an iron filter. Also, using a non-chlorine bleach can help, as chlorine bleach may cause the iron in the water to precipitate on fabrics and leave stains.
