Your washer breaks in most inappropriate moments! Before calling the repair service, check if the washer is plugged in and also check the outlet for current. If the washer is not working properly, the problem is most likely filter screens. To check it unplug the washer to avoid an electrical shock hazard. The filter screens could become clogged. The result is low water pressure or no water or the wrong water temperature. The water level switch can also be an issue. The washer issues can be different: the washer overflows or the water fills too slowly; the water drains out during the wash or rinse cycle; the drum does not spin.
Water heater manufacturers warrant tank replacement only. If the tank is defective and leaks in 18 months you have to pay a plumber (or do it yourself) to disconnect the heater and haul it down to the wholesaler or retailer and exchange it for a new one (then re-install it). Warrantees typically are also prorated depending upon how long it lasted compared to the warrantee. If you have a 10 year limited warrantee and it fails on the 9th year you get a 10% credit on the tank cost only towards a new heater. Would you really want to buy another heater from that company if you thought they should give you a new one? The Importance of Your Water Heater On average, a typical family of four will use 2000 gallons of hot water each month—an amount that can really send a flood of dollars out of your wallet if you’re depending on an outdated water heater.
