Running A Washing Machine Without Water

Recommended Posts

By mistake I turned on the washing machine without turning on the water valves. It ran for about 10 minutes. Maybe longer. I do not recall what cycle it reached.

Is there likely damage? Should I call a technician before running it again?

As edd says, if there is no water the washer can't do anything unless it's a hot and cold fill machine and only the cold water was off in which case it would run until the rinses then fail. Valves could burn out if left humming too long but should survive 10 mins. Just turn the taps back on and wash as normal, call an engineer if it doesn't work properly.
