It is a good idea to check your washing machine for leaks, examine the hoses and clean filters about once a year to make sure you do not experience damage from any water leaks.
Visually check all of the hoses, water inlet valves, the tub and drainage system. Hoses should NOT have cracks, leaks or be damaged in any way. If you find this, unplug your washer immediately to avoid contact with electricity. Any leaks or damages must be fixed/replaced.
Clean water inlet filter or lint filter (if you have one) according to the manufacturer's instructions.
If Your Unit is Not Working
If you have a problem with your clothes washer not working, as with all systems or appliances, check for blown fuses, tripped circuit breakers and proper power first
