Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Bemidji Home Flooded by Malfunctioning Washing Machine?

12/5/2023 (Permalink)

A washing machine is overflowing. We are leaders in water damage restoration services in Beltrami County.

Our local Bemidji, Grand Rapids, and Hibbing teams are trusted leaders in water damage restoration services. A washing machine can malfunction in several ways, leading to water damage in a home. Here are some common ways a washing machine can cause water damage:

Leaking Hoses: Washing machines have hoses that connect to the water supply. These hoses can deteriorate over time, develop cracks, or become loose. If a hose leaks or bursts while the washing machine is in use, it can release a significant amount of water into the home.

Faulty Water Inlet Valve: The water inlet valve controls the flow of water into the washing machine during different cycles. If the valve malfunctions or develops a defect, it may not close properly, allowing water to continuously flow into the machine even when it's not in use.

Overloading or Uneven Loading: Overloading the washing machine or loading it unevenly can cause it to become unbalanced during the spin cycle. An unbalanced washing machine can bounce and vibrate, potentially causing the water to spill out of the tub and onto the floor.

Drain Pump Issues: The drain pump is responsible for removing water from the washing machine after each cycle. If the drain pump becomes clogged, damaged, or fails to function correctly, it can result in water not properly draining from the machine.

Door Seal or Gasket Damage: The door seal or gasket on a front-loading washing machine can develop tears, cracks, or become loose over time. If the seal is damaged, water can leak out during the wash cycle.

Overfilling: In rare cases, a malfunction in the water level sensor or pressure switch can lead to the washing machine overfilling with water, causing it to spill over the top and onto the floor.
