Some home repairs are fairly easy (and fairly inexpensive) fixes… if you’re handy. Other repairs require a technician. The most common washing machine ailments revolve (literally!) around the spin and balance.
Balance is an easy “do-it-yourself-fix”. Over-packed washers, or ones that are not sitting level on the floor, may spin lop-sided, or spray water onto the floor. Move the machine, or adjust the ‘feet’ so it sitting level.
A broken lid switch is more serious. If you hear NO sound whatsoever when you put the machine on spin cycle, it may be a broken lid switch. The lid switch mechanism ( a tiny button on the inside lip of the washer lid) keeps the machine from spinning when the lid is open – for safety reasons . If that’s the case, just call a repair technician.
A malfunctioning motor or a broken belt will probably require a service call… but if the problem is the transmission or the drive motor, you are probably better-off getting a new washing machine… energy efficient and with tax savings.
