Whether you are buying a brand new washer machine or simply need to replace a coupler, you need to find the right parts. Buying the right Electrofiable Maytag washer parts can help ensure that your machine will last longer and perform at its best. In fact, some parts, like the coupler, will help to save you money by saving energy and water.
Replace a coupler
Whenever a washer fails to agitate, or makes loud noises, it is often the result of a failing coupler. To fix the problem, you will need to unplug the machine, and remove the drive motor coupler.
To remove the drive motor coupler, you will first need to disassemble the back panel of the washer. This may be a difficult process. A small pry bar can be used to pry the plastic piece off.
Check the level of water in the drain tub
During your wash cycle, you may have to manually drain the water from your washer. If the water drains too slowly, it may be a sign that your water inlet valve is not functioning properly. This problem can also be caused by a broken drain pump, a broken belt, or a broken impeller.
Check the seals and gaskets
Having your washing machine’s seals and gaskets checked on a regular basis is a good idea to prevent leaks and prevent mold and mildew from growing. A leak can come from your washer’s pump, water lines, or the washer’s door.
You can prevent leaks from happening by removing any obstructions, including clothing, shoes, trash, or pockets. You can also clean your washer’s gasket with a solution of water and vinegar, which can help eliminate musty odors.
Check the agitator directional cogs
During the wash cycle, the agitator is the device that helps to move the laundry. When the agitator is not working properly, it is possible that the clothes will remain on top of the tub. This is due to a broken or worn agitator directional cogs.
These directional cogs, also known as dog ears, allow the top half of the agitator to rotate in one direction while the bottom part turns in the opposite direction. In some models, the agitator is in two pieces.
Clean the dispenser regularly
Having a clean dispenser can help prevent the build up of mold, mildew and bacteria. Whether you own a front load or top load washer, cleaning the dispenser is an important part of maintaining your machine.
To clean your washer, you can use special cleaners, according to the manufacturer’s directions. You can also create your own cleaning solution using natural ingredients.
Prevent mold from growing
Using the right parts for your washer machine can help to prevent mold from growing. Having the right equipment will not only help to get rid of the growth, but will also help to prevent it from coming back.
