How to Reset your Washing Machine

Usually there are no such situations faced until now where this machine needed resetting but still if it is not working then perform a simple resetting procedure. Press the power button to turn off the machine and then wait for a minute or two. Press the button again to turn on the machine. If this strategy doesn’t work we have to go for a master reset. This method is basically used by the technicians where onboard components are completely reset back to point zero.  You are required to keep opening and closing the door of the washing machine at least 6 times within 12 seconds. In order to check if your problems are resolved press the button of spin/rinse cycle with no clothes inside the machine. Problem is over if draining works. Next step will be unclogging if the matter is nit resolved.


Whenever you move the machine or need to make some kind of changes in it, you have to turn off the machine from the power button. An error may be caused if your drain hose is bent. Set it at an accurate position. Pull the washer from its place where you can make your way to the host entry point that is attached with some screws. You must clog out some water through the hose. The best connection that can work well is an outdoor hose. You can apply this technique with a stick or any other long object. Remove the blockage by running the hottest cycle on your machine with no clothes inside if you are not able to remove the drain hose. Now, attach the drain hose to your machine as soon as the water starts flowing steadily. The end of drain hose must not be more than 12 cm and it should be straight. We’ve also covered resetting Electrolux Dishwashers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the most frequently asked questions about this washing machine are as follows:

  1. What to do if the door of the washer doesn’t open?

While using washing machine, front loaders must be tightly shut. This is where the problem arises. Machine will automatically unlock when the water cycle is over but sometimes front loader stops working properly and remains locked. The machine traps the water and clothes inside it. Why does it happen?

Maybe some clothes got in the way of locking mechanism

There may be a problem in the draining system of the washing machine


The common possible solution to this problem is that we restart the washing machine. Press the power button to turn off the machine for a minute or two and then switch it back on. If according to you, the clothes were stuck in the locker you can start a short cycle to run the washer. The lock will be on jammed hand clothes start moving. Moreover, your clothes will get washed twice. Good for you!

We use washing machine a number of times but do not care about cleanliness. It becomes dirty and the smell is transferred to the clothes. It is a lesser known fact that an empty washing machine must run a cycle so that the water washes the inside of machine even the nooks and crannies. It reaches to every corner keeping the machine clean. If you are looking for a better solution to completely get rid of the smell, here is what you can do.

Ingredients you need include:

2 cups of vinegar

1/4 cup baking soda

1/4 cup of water

Try this method after every month or two.

This problem can be faced because of various potential causes. Maybe your motor is not working. There is a leakage in your washing machine and water is replacing the power.  Sometimes people overload the machine and the motor overheats. Any solution to this problem is that do not overburden your machine with lots of clothes. If you have a lot of laundry, take small turns. If you want to get all summed up in one go, upgrade the machine to something bigger in size. This machine can take clothes up to its capacity only.

Check the back of the machine or top loader. Also, open the door that is the front loader or check inside the door and you can find the serial number of your washing machine.

For this purpose, make sure that lint filter is cleaned regularly.

Washing machines can be used for a long period of time but obviously there will be a day when they cannot work any longer. That is high time for you to replace your old washing machine with fresh one that has more features and provides improved cleaning.

It is nit always a good experience to order appliances online. You may go with those that offer a return policy if you are not satisfied with the product or those platforms that offer a warranty. Otherwise  it is best to go to a shop and see the product in person to finalize your decision.
