Question about Washing Machines
My washer seems to have a plugged out let hose. I have removed the external hose and cleaned it but the problem appears to be interior to the machine. The repair person is coming but when I asked the services desk why this occurred or how to stop it from recurring I got no answer. Also, is there a cleaner or chemical that I can run through the washer that will prevent this build up of detergent. Any suggestions?
I had a similar problem with an LG washing machine. The lint was building up around the pump impellor. It is a simple case of following the hose down into the machine and locating the pump. Open the pump and clean the impellor and you should be OK. Worst case watch what the repair bloke does. If he says you need a new pump (depending on age) have him open it to inspect whether the impellor is broken or just needs cleaning out. He may try to sell you a 'new' pump, which quite likely will be your old one cleaned up. If in doubt, insist on keeping the 'broken' one and inspect it later. If it is fine, keep it as a spare.
