Here we are mentioning some of the major faults and solutions:

Fault 1 – Spinner Of Washing Machine Doesn’t Spins:
Relatively issues related with spinner can be easily resolved, as most of the faults are generally concerns about the usage of washing machine. Although some spinner problems are simple, but there is also possibility of big problems that can’t be single handedly resolved, so get such type of faults repaired from appliance service.

  1. Firstly, check about load that you trying to spin in machine, is it too small to spin? If it is so, check the load of machine. Latest washers includes balance sensors, they check about the amount of load loaded in machine, they stop the machine due to small load as spinner produces excessive vibration due to small load that can either damage cabinet, drum and bearing of washing machine. Check, if such issue is causing problem, put more load in it and try again. Note that spinner also stops working in case of heavy load, so also check for such aspect.
  2. If there isn’t either of situations, then check the drain system of washing machine. Mostly spinner doesn’t spin, if washer dryer has drainage problem. To solve such problem, check the fluff filter that clears the blockage of pump. Alternatively, disassemble the pump usually attached at the front or back of machine, check whether pump is not working due to wear & tear of carbon brushes of motor used in pump. When carbon brushes of motor wears down, it works poorly as compared to its normal operation. To solve this issue replace the pair of carbon brushes with new ones.

Fault 2 – Drain Doesn’t Work Properly:
It isn’t very much big issue to open the drain, problem could be if there is no emergency drainage facility in the machine. You can easily handle the issue by using gravity draining method. In this method, machine’s drain full of water drops down the hose into basin, in this way whole water drains out by the help of gravity.

Fault 3 – Drum Of Machine Is Stuck:
If drum of machine is stuck, then possibly it could be due to motor fault, motor belt, motor controller fault, worn carbon brushes. By fixing anyone of the relative problems, issue of drum jamming could be resolved easily.

Fault 4 – Noisy Operation Of Machine:
For noisy operation, there could be three reasons:

  1. Machine makes noise during operation, when object such as coin or any other item blocks the operation of drum, blockage of any item interrupts the operation of machine. Such objects could be easily removed in the machines containing removable drum paddles, but in fixed drum paddles types, obstructing object could be taken out from heater hole or sump hose hole.
  2. Another reason for noisy operation could be failure of bearings, problem could be settled by fixing the play that cause the drum in up/down position. The problem can be resolved by greasing the bearings properly.
  3. The third reason could be halt in drain pump due to clogging of any object, by clearing that object issue could be easily resolved.

Fault 5 – Bounce Of Washing Machine:
If washing machine has a bouncing operation i.e. it jolts during working, then check the base of machine where it is installed, further check the level of assembly and its transit straps are in good shape. Mostly in old machines bouncing occur due to concrete weights and shock absorbers hold the body of machine.

It is advised that don’t take repair in your hands until you have expertise or at least knowledge to do repair and necessary safety measures. Don’t worry, if your appliance doesn’t work for you, then Appliance Guru will work for your washing machine to make it fix in affordable cost.

5 Useful Tips To Improve The Performance Of Refrigerator

Nowadays refrigerator is one of the widely used appliances of every home.

Ignorance about the maintenance of refrigerator eventually affects the performance as well as lifespan of domestic device.

If refrigerator gets cleaning and maintenance within regular period of time, then you can prevent yourself from the overhead of repair costs and high energy bills. Keeping this in mind, we are presenting you 5 simple maintenance tips to obtain optimal output from your fridge.

After cleaning, take a dollar bill test for seals, to perform this test take a bill or paper and place it half out in the door of refrigerator. If bill slips out easily, then you should contact appliance repair service to check the door seals.

Dry Clean The Condenser Coils:
When dust covers the outer layer of condenser coil, then it settles on the surface of coils in the form of soil deposits, which later reduces the cooling efficiency of refrigerator. To avoid dust on coils, clean it twice a year. To cleanse the coils, turn around the back of appliance so that coils become accessible for dry-clean. If grille of coils exists at the bottom of fridge, then detach it after unplugging refrigerator from power supply. Soon after the removal of grille, it should be cleaned with the brush attachment of vacuum.

Adjust The Temperature:
To obtain optimal output, maintain temperature refrigerator between 37 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and for freezer it should be 0 degree Fahrenheit.

Keep Refrigerator Filled:
To keep on operation, refrigerator requires a thermal mass or lots of stuff, these stuff maintain its low temperature. When you place cold food items and drinks in the refrigerator, they absorb the warm air that creeps in during the opened sessions of door. If you mostly eat outside or refrigerator has bigger accommodation than your use, then for advice you should remain it fill with few jugs of water, it will remain in working order.

Preserve Cooling:
If power breakdown frequently occur in your locality, then try not to open the door of refrigerator during those hours.
