Home appliances are made to make your life easier. Unfortunately, when the appliances that we rely on each day stop working as they should, our lives can quickly become turned upside down. My washing machine was causing me all sorts of problems. Not only did it not want to finish a cycle because it showed that the load was off-balance, but it was also leaking water onto the floor under it. I knew that I had to act quickly to get it repaired. I called the repairman and he explained several things that I was doing wrong with my machine and how each mistake was causing the issues.
