WASHING MACHINE PROBLEMS

LOUD SOUNDS

The most reoccurring type of washing machine repair is for strange sounds coming out of the washer. Repairmen knows how to uncover the reason of the strange noise and decide if we should repair or replace the broken parts. The origin of the sound is typically because of a worn-down pump motor or worn-out bearings or belt.

WILL NOT AGITATE

If your washer won’t agitate, first take a look to see if it is unplugged or if a circuit breaker flipped off. The issue could also be because of a broken latch, timer or thermal fuse. A washing machine that doesn’t turn on means the cogs, coupler, drive belt or transmission need repair or replacement.

DOESN’T SPIN

A washing machine that won’t spin means there’s an issue with the wax motor, door latch or motor coupling. We will repair these issues in no time at all and have your washing machine spinning again ASAP!

OVERFLOWING

The common reasons for a washing machine overflowing is either the water level pressure switch, water inlet valve or the air dome tube on the appliance.

WATER TEMPERATURE ISSUES

A broken temperature control switch or inlet hose is typically the reason why a washing machine does not produce hot or cold water.

DRYER PROBLEMS

STRANGE NOISES

The most common dryer problem is strange sounds coming out of the machine. Broken bearings, seals or worn belts will often lead to loud noises from dryers.

WILL NOT DRY

A clothes dryer that won’t create enough heat to dry laundry is not very useful. The cause of the issue is either a broken heating element, high limit thermostat or cycling thermostat. The same parts could cause a dryer to be too hot. Our technician will troubleshoot the appliance to uncover the problem and solution.

WON’T TURN ON OR TUMBLE

When your dryer doesn’t turn on, you want to be sure the appliance is plugged in and all of the circuit breakers are flipped on. If the dryer isn’t unplugged and still won’t turn on or tumble, the high-limit thermostat, heating element or cycling thermostat will have to be repaired or replaced.

DOES NOT TURN OFF

The exact opposite issue is if the dryer does not shut off. The cause of this problem is either a broken door switch or timer.

TIMER DOESN’T ADVANCE

A dryer timer must advance in order to complete the cycle. When the timer will not advance, it might mean there is a broken timer motor or cycling thermostat.
