TROUBLESHOOTING WASHER
First try the solutions suggested here and possibly avoid the cost of a service call...
Noisy, vibrating, off-balance
Is the floor flexing,
sagging or not level? Flooring that
flexes or is uneven can contribute to noise and vibration of
the washer. A 3/4"(1.9 cm) piece of plywood under the washer
will reduce the sounds. See the Installation Instructions.
Is the laundry center level? The laundry center must be
level. See the Installation Instructions.
Is the load balanced? Evenly distribute the load in the
washer basket and make sure the height of the load does not
exceed the top row of basket holes.
Did you completely remove the yellow shipping strap with
cotter pins? See the Installation Instructions.
Are the gears engaging
after the drain and before spin, or
is the upper part of agitator
clicking during wash? These
are normal washer noises.
Is the washer gurgling or humming? When the washer
drains, the pump will make a continuous humming with
periodic gurgling or surging sounds as the final amounts of
water are removed. This is normal.
The washer basket moves while washing. This is normal.
Leaking
Are the fill hoses tight?
Are the fill hose gaskets properly seated? Check both
ends of each hose. See the Installation Instructions.
Is the drain hose properly installed? The drain hose should
be secured to the drainpipe or laundry tub. See the
Installation Instructions.
Is the sink or drain clogged?
Sink and drainpipe must be
able to carry away 17 gal. (64 L) of water per minute. If sink or
drainpipe is clogged or slow, water can back up out of
drainpipe or sink. Check household plumbing (laundry tubs,
faucets, drainpipe, water pipes) for leaks.
Is water splashing
off the tub ring? Center the tub before
starting the washer.
Is water splashing
off the load? Evenly distribute the load in
the washer basket and make sure the height of the load does
not exceed the top row of basket holes. The fill or spray
rinses can splash off the load.
Dispenser
clogged (on some models)
Did you follow the manufacturer's
directions when adding
fabric softener to the dispenser (on some models)?
Measure fabric softener and slowly pour into the dispenser.
Wipe up all spills. Dilute fabric softener in the fabric softener
dispenser.
