siemens washing machine wmh6y790gb. can the pump etc freeze is kept in an garage down to minus 2 deg c. ?

Hi

Im afraid washing machines are not really best kept in garages or out sheds unless they are well insulated.

As yes the pumps can freeze up as there is always water left in side a washer once its finished its cycle so if its very cold the water in there can freeze and split the plastic casing.

Ive replaced loads of them over the years for freezing in the winter as well as the water supply hoses as they can freeze up as well.

One thing you can do though is once the cycle has finished then at the bottom on the front is the filter.

Open this up and drain the water out from there fully. This way it wont leave water in there and then it wont freeze and damage the pump from there.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.
