Washing machine issues
Washing machine error
If your washing machine doesn't work anymore, because it can't drain its water or no water reaches the drum, for example, the display of your washing machine will show an error notification. To find out what's up, we've listed the most frequently occurring errors by brand.
Washing machine makes a noise
Help, your washing machine vibrates and makes noise. That might be because the washing machine is on a wooden floor or isn't level. It's important that you level the washing machine on a hard floor. Do you have a Samsung washing machine? You'll also have to calibrate it. This is very simple and only takes a few minutes.
Washing machine is leaking
If your washing machine leaks, this can have various causes. First check whether the inlet and outlet hoses are tight on both sides. Another reason may be that laundry is stuck in the door. This leaks water into the bottom drawer from the front. It is then important to disconnect the washing machine from the power and temporarily tilt the appliance. Turn off the tap completely.

Washing machine smells
Does your washing machine smell? If so, switch on the drum cleaning or a cotton program at 90°C. Make sure that the drum is completely empty and do not use detergent. Next, clean the rubber ring by the drum. You do this with soapy water and hot water. Then open the cover for the drain filter at the bottom of the washing machine. When emptying this filter you catch the water with a bowl. Read here how to remove the smell from your washing machine.
