Plumbing Repair for Washing Machines
Portland OR | Vancouver WA | Camas WA | Washougal WA
Having a washing machine within your home is a great modern convenience. Your washing machine saves you hours every week! It’s important to keep your washing machine up-to-date with proper plumbing fittings and leak-free pipes to protect your home from unnecessary damage.
Do I Have a Plumbing Problem with My Washing Machine?
Washing machines are complex appliances, and should always be repaired by a professional who specializes in washing machines. Our plumbers can fix hoses and run the piping, but we do not repair the appliance itself.
Plumbers should be called in to handle water supply and drain lines, which can clog over time. Faulty pipes or fixtures can cause poor performance, leaks, and other problems. As leaks grow, you will begin to notice water trickling on floors or other areas of your home, which can cause extensive damage over time.
Signs of failing washing machine plumbing include:
- Failing to wash clothes properly
- Failing to drain
When these signs first appear, it’s important to contact your plumber as soon as possible. Leaks tend to grow rapidly as hair and debris continue to clog washing machine pipes. It’s important to note: the problem with your washing machine may not be the pipes, and it could be an issue within the machine. This generally manifests as a knocking sound, any burning smells, or lack of power to the appliance. If that’s the case, you will have to consult with a separate specialist who can fix the appliance itself.

Relocating Plumbing for a Washing Machine
If you’re renovating your home or basement, you may find that your washing machine is in the way, or that there may be a better place to relocate it to.
