The best place to find information on washing machine troubleshooting is on the manufacturer's website. Many websites, including those for General Electric and Maytag, offer product manuals and support communities to help customers fix their own washing machines. Maytag also offers a link for online replacement part shopping.
Washing machine owners can also look to the Sears online Washer Repair Center, which provides advice that applies to multiple major manufacturers. The website offers a list of common washing machine problems and the possible causes. It also offers instructional videos that help customers learn how to handle standard care and maintenance issues.
