The average washing machine will last approximately 10 years. If your decade-old unit has been acting up, it could be time for an upgrade. Here are some signs that indicate you might need a new washing machine:
If your machine wobbles and makes a lot of noise with every load, it could just be unbalanced. To stabilize your washer, try adjusting the feet at each bottom corner until they are level. If this doesn’t do the trick, the drum or motor mount might need tightening. You should get an estimate and weigh the cost of the repair over a new washer.
Several things could cause your machine to leak. You should first inspect and tighten all of the hoses to the unit. If that doesn’t fix the issue, there could be a crack in the washing machine tub. In that case, you might find it much more cost-efficient to purchase a new machine rather than tackle this major repair, especially for an older unit.
When you take your clothes out of the washer and find them drenched, it means your drum didn’t spin at the end of the cycle. It could be a worn-out motor or a problem with the pressure system, so some further investigation by a professional will be required.
