Washing Machine Problems

Check above plug and switch by using an appliance that you know is working somewhere else in the house

Washing Machine Walks (vibrates)

Noisy when Draining water – something lodge inside the Drain pump – Call High Point 083 52 52 52 2
• Noisy when Spinning -
o Bra wire stuck between inner drum and outer drum – Stop and remove or Call High Point
o Bearings needs to be replaced – Two ways of checking, swing inner drum with hand or let washing machine run on the spin cycle without anything inside - Call High Point
o Noisy during spinning with a load but if you remove the load (washing) it spins quietly – bearing are fine but inner drum assembly is cracked – call High Point 083 52 52 52 2

Foaming to Much

Possible causes and solutions

• Wrong washing Powder – For twin tubs use High Foaming Powder ( Omo )and for Automatic Washing Machines use only low Foaming Power (Bio-Classic)

Tip: Fabric Softener will help to reduce foam inside Washing Machine
