Quite often the repair of washing machines in Poway is ordered due to wear of the belt or its flight from the pulley. In the first case, the master brings a new belt and fixes it instead of the old, and in the second – sets the element in its intended place.

 

In both cases, the repair of washing machines is carried out quickly enough, and the results of the work are supported by an appropriate warranty. The very specifics of the work depend on the reason for the call. Most often it is a stretching or tearing of the belt due to prolonged use or critical damage due to wear and tear of the bearings.

 

Is it possible to repair washing machines independently?

Undoubtedly. But it is necessary to be confident in your abilities and to be able to competently determine the causes of the problem. To get the necessary information, it is enough to turn the drum manually. If there is no resistance because the belt has slipped, it is necessary to set it in place. Weak rotation is due to wear and tear of the components. In such a situation, replacement of the washing machine belt will be a mandatory action.

 

Performing a replacement involves the purchase of the belt and its installation. You can buy the product at any specialized store. To perform the installation, it will be necessary to remove the bolts for fixation, and then carefully remove the back panel of the machine. Next, you need to twist the pulley and remove the old belt, then, gradually turning, put the new belt on the motor and pulley.

 

Then you need to check the correctness of the installation by turning the pulley and then returning the back cover into place. It is advisable to perform a small test wash to verify that the washing machine repair is done correctly. Only after that, the work can be considered complete.

 

Is it safe to repair washing machines at home?

With the necessary skills and experience, it is possible to do the mentioned work yourself. However, it is necessary to be extremely careful, because the process of replacing the belt of the washing machine can hit nearby mechanisms and disrupt their functionality.

 

Such a risk is simply inappropriate.

 

All the more so that you can order the repair of washing machines in Poway. To do this, it is enough to contact Appliance Repair Poway promptly and call a specialized specialist who will perform the work quickly and efficiently.
