Bad washer (by Pat [VA]) Posted on: Nov 22, 2020 4:19 PM
Message:

An old washer at unit, it was unplugged (ours), we told them they could use it as long as it lasted. I tried it out to get rid of a problem before the new tenant would have to complain about it. I figured it was bad when tenant's daughter said they didn't use it because of the iron in the water. However, the washer had obvious signs of rust stains on it so I knew they used it!

So we plugged it in & it didn't seem to want to stop filling even after the agitator started working, so we threw it out. Any of you ever have one go bad like that? Just kept filling, we didn't wait to see if it would run over. --71.219.xx.x

There is a fill sensor that is supposed to cause the water to shut off when it gets to maximum level. --73.25.xx.xxx

My husband has been dabbeling at fixing appliances at our properties that don't work by watching youtube videos. He enters the appliance problem to find a slew of repair videos. Some are so simple I can do them! --75.11.xx.xx

The washing machine has a small rubber tube going from a pressure switch to the tub. If that tube wears a hole in it or pops off, it will create your issue. It could also be a failed pressure switch. Either issue would be less than $20 to repair. --73.177.xxx.xx

There is a vacuum or pressure switch hooked up to detect how much water the tank is holding. A replacement sensor switch runs between $15 and $40....and is easy to install... --47.155.xx.xxx

We're in our 70's, we just don't feel like fooling with stuff anymore. I hate to throw stuff away but it is about 20 years old, even though it seemed like it was going to wash & it did pump the water out, we took it out. --71.219.xx.x

My mother just had the pressure switch fail on her washer. 3 inches of water on the floor.

Not worth the liability. Replace that washer. It's 20 years old, you already got the good from it. --69.80.xx.xx

Totally get it Pat; gotta keep my husband busy or he goes out of his mind. He would rather try to fix it than move it out. --75.11.xx.xx

When they show rust stains or some other unsightly issue I try to swap in something newer just as you did.

A switch or hose issue is too easy to fix for me to replace.

I keep used washers and dryers forever because I fear the computer controlled models. We all know the newer stuff doesn't seem to last and gets error codes.

I also share the appliances I have. I had some people visit Saturday morning and when I opened the doors they saw pallet shelving loaded with dryers, washers, ranges, and fridges. All free to them. All used. --108.28.xx.xxx
