Unlevel Washing Machine Causes Water Damage in Butterfield Ranch Home?

6/11/2024 (Permalink)

Water leaks from underneath a washing machine. We restore water damage in San Bernardino County “Like it never even happened.”

Our local Chino/Chino Hills team has been responding to water damage emergencies in Butterfield Ranch for years. An unlevel washing machine may seem like a minor inconvenience, but it may lead to costly water damage in your home. When a washing machine is not leveled correctly, it can cause excessive vibrations during the spin cycle, leading to movement and displacement of the appliance. This movement can result in the loosening or disconnection of hoses and fittings, causing water to leak onto the floor.

Water leaks from an unlevel washing machine can go unnoticed for extended periods, seeping into flooring, walls, and subflooring, creating ideal conditions for mold growth and structural damage. Additionally, prolonged exposure to moisture can compromise the integrity of building materials, leading to rot and decay.

To prevent water damage caused by an unlevel washing machine, it's essential to ensure that the appliance is correctly leveled during installation and periodically check its level after that. Using a bubble level, adjust the machine's feet until they are stable and evenly balanced. Regularly inspect hoses and fittings for signs of wear or damage and promptly address any issues to prevent leaks.
