In each house there is a washing machine serving as an assistant to a woman during laundry. This device is quite complicated and can sometimes fail for various reasons. If this happens, then you do not need to immediately run for a new one or call a master, because often you can eliminate the breakdown at home. Problems, because of which the machine stopped functioning normally, may be several, so before you do something, you need to determine their source. We will consider why the washing machine collects water, but does not erase.
Causes of malfunction
Sometimes it happens that the stylalka accumulates water, but does not realize its direct purpose. If this happened, then do not panic at once. Often a malfunction can be resolved without contacting a service center. Let's consider the reasons for such a malfunction:
- The drive belt can fly off.
- Malfunction of the motor.
- The heater burned, therefore, the water does not heat up and the washing does not begin.
- The failure occurred in the control board. This happens rather rarely, but such a probability can not be excluded.
Lock the drum
Initially, you need to check the drum - it can be mechanically blocked. Foreign objects stuck between the drum and the tank interfere with normal rotation. If this "hindrance" is removed, then the work will resume.
The heating element is broken
When recruiting water into the stylus, the TEN starts working - thus, the water heats up. When the water is heated to the required temperature, the sensor that drives the engine is triggered. If the water does not heat up, the sensor will not start. In this case, an error should appear on the screen, indicating a problem with the TEN. To check the heater, open the rear cover of the washing machine. Sometimes this element may be located in front, in this case it is necessary to open the front panel.
The heater is basically installed in the lower section of the tank, to which various wires are fed, they must be disconnected. To remove the heating element, unscrew the central nut. The protruding bolt must be inserted inside. After this, a flat screwdriver must be pinched by the TEN body and pulled out of the tank with the help of loosening.
Initially, it will be necessary to clean the heater of accumulated scale. If in the process of inspection of the electric heater on it were dark spots, then there is a high probability that there is a breakdown. In this case, the heater needs to be changed to a new one. If there are no spots, then it can be checked by a tester. To this end, you need to switch the resistance measurement device. If the heater is OK, the resistance will be 20-40 Ohm, and sometimes - 60 Ohm. If the resistance is less than 20 Ohm, this indicates a malfunction of the heater.
Problems with the belt
Problems with the belt are characteristic for belt washing machines. Therefore, if you have such an assistant, it is better to begin a search for breakdowns from this element, because this reason is one of the first reasons why the washing machine constantly collects water and does not begin to wash.
Remove the wall is quite easy, for this you need to remove all the screws with which it holds.
The belt that flew off must be inspected carefully. If it was noticed rubbing or minor cracks, then it is likely that they caused it to fly off. In this case, a replacement is necessary. To put on a belt it is possible as follows: to dress it on the motor shifter and to turn counter-clockwise while it completely does not become in place.
After replacing the faulty belt, it is necessary to turn on the test wash mode to make sure that the correct operation of the machine is correct and as a result, the machine works correctly.
The control module has failed
Another reason for failure may be in the control module. With the electronic card, the washing steps are switched, but this does not happen due to a breakdown. But this is rare. Note that if the electronic board has failed, then to solve this problem, only a professional can, because the master will be able to say whether it can be repaired or has to be changed to a new one.
Another reason for the problems with washing can be a breakdown of the electric motor. The basic malfunctions:
- In the electric motor, brushes were worn out.
- The starting capacitor located in the induction motor has failed.
Specialists note that the engine may not turn on due to prolonged washings, for example, a number of loads lasting more than an hour occurred.
To change the brushes, you need:
- Remove the bolts and remove the engine.
- Disconnect the sensors and belt.
- Tilt the terminal off the brush with a screwdriver.
- Unscrew the bolts and remove the carbon electrode or do this by pressing the spring. If the extracted electrode is shorter than one and a half centimeters, then it must be replaced.
- When removing the brush, it is necessary to note the ends of the coals in which side the ends are worn, because if they are put back, the motor can spark.
It is very important: you need to replace two brushes at once, one at a time is not recommended.
Next, it is necessary to clean the collector from scratches and coal dust: you need to use fine sandpaper, which you need to attach to the manifold and roll the shaft. Rotations must be continued until the collector is cleaned.
After these manipulations, the engine must be installed in place, connect all the elements and test the unit.
In the article, we considered possible reasons why a washing machine collects water, but does not wash. Now you know how to cope with these problems yourself.
