Question about Washing Machines
The machine is only 2 yrs old. It will allow water to come in, but it only makes a very slight humming noise when the lid is shut. I tried playing with the lid to make sure it was not the lid switch, but that didnt work. What could be the problem?
It is most likely the pressure switch assembly ... but wait dont run out to buy parts yet... try this first...
-Remove the front panel off the washing machine.
-Look on the side of the tub for where the pressure hose attaches to the base of it.
-Check for a build up of gunk in the hose near where the tube meets the tub... you'll probably notice wht looks like mildew... usually you can just pull it apart.
-I used pipe cleaners to clean out the end of the tube (you can usually unattach from both ends to make it wasier to work on)
-Now before you put it back together grab a can of compressed air and use it to blow down into where the hose connects (as there is usually a build up there too).
-Reassemble... TADA... if that fixed it you just saved yourself some $$$.
