00:26 usually because of a broken lid switch
00:29 a click should sound
00:31 as this is set in place
00:34 If you do not hear the click then your
00:37 or if the washing machine isn’t going into its last cycles
00:41 it is usually the lid switch here
00:45 occasionally you can just push on this right side
00:48 and get it to close the switch plus sometimes you can just adjust the post a tiny bit
00:53 uh… so that the post will extend further
into the switch which will close the switch also
00:57 occasionally you can just move the switch or tighten it up
01:01 often it must be replaced I have a video showing that
01:05 Number two most often problem with

01:08 washing machines often goes unnoticed
01:10 something you would likely want to check often is that your agitator
01:14 dogs are functioning as they should
01:16 the way it should work is turn the bottom one-way or the other so
01:21 this one is working in the proper manner
01:23 and the agitator dogs are functioning but if it is
not doing that than your laundry is only getting rinsed
01:28 they aren’t really getting washed
01:29 it is an often unnoticed
01:32 problem with washing machines
01:33 it’s most likely so common because the agitator dogs inside here are
01:38 engineered to break if someone’s arm was to get lodged in here or if something
01:43 was to bind up too much the agitator dogs will break on purpose as a safety mechanism
01:50 Number three most often source of trouble with washing

Clothes Washer Out Of Balance Banging And Wobbling

Number five most often source of trouble is a washing machine out of
02:13 balance. Now this is usually caused by laundry items being out of balance
02:18 it is just a matter of adjusting the clothing. Often a towel or
02:22 something gets on one side and you hear the whump whump whump whump of
02:25 the machine
02:26 what you need to do is open the lid
02:28 and than go ahead and readjust the clothing or go ahead and reposition the towel
02:32 uh… rearrange the items inside the basin to get a more balanced
02:36 and then proceed to run it again and watch if it
02:38 works out to cancel the
02:40 out of balance symptom occasionally you might lose a spring usually though it’s just that the
02:46 machines out of kilter

02:47 someday I will have to make you a video demonstrating how to reset the spring if it did come off
02:51 there is three individual shocks and then there is a spring
02:54 that holds the bin in place
02:57 now the way to check if your machine is still in balance is to proceed to run it
03:01 with only water
03:02 allow the water to fill up
03:04 if the machine finds its balance than it proves it was just a matter of the laundry
03:08 or the clothing items
03:09 being out of kilter
03:12 so that is the 5 most often sources of trouble with washing machines.
