    Hi

    I'm trying to teach myself about washing machines. I really want to know how they work, the common components, typical faults that they get, etc.

    Basically I have plumbed one in befoire, but don't know how to repair them, how they even work properley!

    I know they have the drum, door seals, inlet valves? (hot and cold flexy tubes, a lot now are cold fill only though), electric supplier, programmer, pump and outlet pipe.

    Is there a pretty common working sequenece for most machines and similar parts in most machines?

    Are there any good websites that can help me here??

    Thanks all for any help offered, all the best.
