I moved into a new build flat in December 2014 (rented) with entirely new appliances. I have noticed recently (the past month or so) that the clothes from the washing machine do not swell very nice after they are washed.
I contacted my landlord and someone was sent to look at the washing machine. I checked with my concierge and he was in my flat for literally 15 minutes. I asked him what he checked and it was just the tubes at the back of the machine to make sure all the connections for the water were ok which they are (apparently).
However, my washing is still not smelling very nice. I feel like a more thorough investigation is required but don't know what to say to my landlord. Do I need to say to him that the machine needs to be taken apart? Do the drains need to be checked? My parents have looked at the machine and noticed that it doesn't seem to get very hot even when washed on 60 degrees. You can put your hand on the window of the machine and it just feels normal temperature. This has made them question whether the heating element has gone but we are not experts and not sure.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Ok. Thanks for your help.
Does the fact the water seems to be draining out cold during a hot wash cycle point to a problem? Or could this still be 'normal'?
Thanks. I'll talk to my landlord.
Not sure if you saw my final question in my last reply. Does the fact the water seems to be draining out cold during a hot wash cycle point to a problem? Or could this still be 'normal'?
Please let me know your thoughts on the above and I can then close this thread and give you feedback
