A washing machine breakdown is perhaps the most disruptive domestic appliance disaster that could impact your household tasks.
You load up the washing machine with your week’s dirty laundry, dash off to run errands, only to return hours later to find your washing still dirty, including your child’s sports kit that’s needed tomorrow! It’s a crisis that needs quick action.
It’s normal for washing machines to wear down yet most people fear repairs are expensive, so they opt to dish out on a new washing machine to solve the problem. Truth is, washing machine repairs are a simple task for an expert and are far cheaper than buying a new appliance.
If you’re looking for a washing machine repair service in Omaha, ASAP Appliance can help. We understand how important your appliances are to your day-to-day tasks and our professional appliance repair service team will be at your house to get the job done right the first time.
Common Washer Problems
One of the most common broken washing machine problems is the washer is not spinning, meaning your clothes come out from the washer soaking wet. A faulty lid switch, broken belt, or problem with the motor is the likely culprit for such a problem.
Before calling for washer repair parts, check to make sure there are no clothes jammed. Unbalanced loads will cause the washer to “walk” which causes jams. If moving the load around doesn’t work, it is more than likely broken and will need washer repair service done to replace the broken washing machine part.
Other common washing machine repairs:
- Washer will not start
- Timer will not advance
- Shakes and moves
- Will not fill with water
- Will not stop filling with water
- Burning smell
- Lid/door will not open
- No hot or cold water
- Fills and drains at the same time

Proper Washer Maintenance
To extend the lifespan and efficiency of your washing machine, there are a few maintenance tips to follow.
Every couple of months you should check the hoses that connect the washing machine for cracks and clogs, wipe down the door and gasket, and give the drum a thorough cleaning.
General usage tips include not overloading the washer, using the correct and right amount of detergent, removing laundry after the cycle has finished, and leaving the door ajar following the cycle.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, even washing machines can get dirty. Cleaning your washing machine might not be the most alluring job, but a brisk clean will help keep it in tip-top condition.
- Before getting to work on the washer drum, clean the gasket by spraying it with white vinegar and wiping it with a wet cloth. The rubber gasket can accumulate water, hair, and scum.
- Set the washing machine to the hottest setting and longest cycle and place two cups of white vinegar to the detergent dispenser.
- Run for a complete cycle and then do a second cycle with just hot water.
- Following the second cycle, leave the washing machine door open to allow the inside to dry.
If you don’t feel up to the DIY option, you can also purchase washing machine cleaner where detergents are sold. Simply follow the instructions on the box or bottle.
The rise of cheaply made washing machine models has decreased the expected life span of the appliance to six years. That being said, a quality washing machine built to handle thousands of wash loads can last anywhere between 10-25 years.
If your washing machine won’t drain, the drain hose/ pump is either clogged or broken. When the hose is clogged, water is prevented from being pumped out of the machine. This often happens when you wash something that sheds a lot of fabric fibers.
To drain your washing machine, unplug your washing machine and begin to scoop out water from the drum. Once you’ve removed as much water as possible, slide the washer out from the wall to access the drain hose. Disconnect the drain hose from the wall and drain the excess water in a bucket (be aware there can be between 5-10 gallons of water stored in the washer). After the water has drained, remove any clogs from the hose and then reconnect.
Newer model washing machines will come with a reset method that will vary from model to model. Check your manual for a guide on how to reset your model’s washing machine. If there is no unique reset process for your machine, unplug and then plug the washer back after waiting for ten minutes.
