How to check the washing machine?

A modern washing machine is not cheap, so purchase should be taken very, very responsibly. Unfortunately, the washing machine belongs to those household appliances, the work of which is physically impossible to fully check when buying, because for such a test, the machine must be connected to the water supply system and to the sewage system. To do this for obvious reasons, the store is not possible.

What to do in this case? Just choose the brand and model, pay the bill and wait until the car is delivered home, so that you can already connect it and check its work? Of course, you will also check the typewriter at home, but in the store you can conduct a preliminary check on some parameters.

How to check the washing machine when buying

  1. Choose a suitable model for the size and properties of the washing machine. By the way, the subtleties of such a choice are described in detail in our article How to choose a washing machine.
  2. First of all, very carefully inspect the chosen copy from all sides and make sure that there are no scratches, dents and other damages on the walls and cover of the case.
  3. If the appearance of the washing machine is all in order, ask the seller for instructions for this machine and proceed to further inspection, namely, check for the presence of transport bolts. Their number and location are indicated in the instruction manual. In the event that there are no transport bolts, it is better to immediately abandon the purchase of this car and not be led to any admonitions by the seller that these bolts, they say, were removed in advance in the store for your convenience. Transport bolts must be in their proper places!
  4. Inspect the bolts from a very close distance - are there any scratches on them from a screwdriver or other unscrewing marks? The presence of such traces leads to the sad thought that maybe this car has already been repaired. In this case, it is better not to risk and buy another car.
  5. Inspect the legs of the washing machine and the corners of the case to which they are attached, and make sure that they are not bent. Very often during careless unloading, the loaders drop a heavy washing machine, and as a result of hitting the ground, her legs are bent.
  6. Check the smooth progress of the detergent dispenser tray.Fully pull out the tray, inspect the hatch that has opened and smell it - if it does not smell like laundry detergent. The presence of such a smell indicates that someone has already returned the car to the store, and an unscrupulous seller again put it on sale.
  7. Inspect all hoses and check for cracks or other damage.
  8. Now it remains to check the drum. The best tool for such a check - the usual women's tights. With crumpled tights, swipe across all the inner walls of the drum - if there are metal barbs there, the tights will hook on them.

After the washing machine is selected, carefully inspected and paid for, it remains only to check the correctness of filling out the warranty card and you can go home and wait for its delivery.

How to check the washing machine upon delivery

When the car is delivered to your home, unpack it, inspect it again and make sure that there are no external damages (porters in stores sometimes are very messy!). In accordance with the instructions, check the completeness of delivery. After the secondary test, install the machine at the location chosen for it and connect it to the water supply, sewerage and electrical network.

Connect the machine yourself (if you are sure that you can do the job yourself) or call a specialist from the service center. After connecting, conduct the first test run of your new car.

How to check the car when you first connect

  1. Read the enclosed instructions and familiarize yourself with the rules of use of the washing machine.
  2. Ensure that the machine is plugged in and that the tap is open.
  3. Trial run spend "idle" without putting things in the drum.
  4. Put some washing powder in the dispenser, turn on the machine. In the menu on the control panel, select one of the short washing modes available in your machine, and click the "Start" button.
  5. If everything goes as it should, the machine will begin to pump water, then the drum begins to rotate.
  6. After the machine has completed the washing program, the engine will stop, after a minute the door will unlock, the machine will signal the end of work and automatically disconnect from the network.
  7. If everything happened as described, then the test run was successful and the machine is ready for operation.
