Washing machine handy hints

If the Door on a front load washing machine won’t open…

Check to see if the water has drained out if not it could be that the outlet hose is blocked.

Check the hose for any blockages and if possible siphon the water out.

If there is no water in the appliance, turn the appliance off at the wall, sometimes this will release the door lock.

Usually the main reason for this faulty is there may be a blockage in the drain pump. (see not draining)

My Washing Machine won’t turn on??

Check to see if power cord is plugged into the power point, and the power point works. The power point is usually located on the wall above or next to the appliance. Make sure that the appliance is plug into a power point directly & not into a power board. If it’s plugged into a power board, make sure it hasn’t overloaded and tripped. Check that the power cord is plugged in correctly and make sure it’s not damaged in anyway. Then check the power point itself. An easy way to check the point is to plug is to plug in a small appliance like a hair dryer and make sure it works. If all else fails call Matic for a service.

Washing machine will not empty!?. .

Check to see if the outlet hose is not blocked. The main reason usually is a blockage in the drain pump.

If it still does not work call for a service.
