How to fix simple washing machine problems
In the event that your washing machine is not starting, it’s important to run through a checklist of easy things you can check yourself. Some items on this list might sound silly but they could potentially save you from calling out an expensive technician unnecessarily.
Now that you have confirmed the power is on and your device is plugged in, check to make sure it’s not a problem with the outlet. If this does not fix any issues then try checking if there are any blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers. Lastly, look for an option such as Delay Start or Control Lock which will need to be turned off before continuing troubleshooting.
If you are having problems resetting the washer, try opening and closing your door first. This can often fix an issue that would have required a costly visit from the repairman.
Are suds dangerous for washers? If so, how to remove it?
At first, you might think that more soap means cleaner clothes; this is not the case. Oversudsing can lead to residue on your clothing and damage to your washing machine if too much detergent has been used.
If you don’t want to deal with too many suds, make sure the detergent is HE-approved and consult your owner’s manual for specific information on how to maintain your washing machine. If nothing seems wrong but there are still issues then it may be time to call in experts.
How much does a washing machine repair cost?
On average, the cost of repairing a washer is $160.

The most common repairs for washers include water level sensor replacement which costs an average of about 150 dollars.
Is it worth it to repair a washing machine or just buy a new one?
If your washer is less than a decade old and the repair costs are half or less of buying a new washing machine, it’s typically more economical to fix it. Plus, many appliance repairs cost under $150 so you’ll want to opt for fixing over replacing in this case.
