WASHING MACHINE PROBLEMS

STRANGE SOUNDS

A reoccurring type of washer repair is for strange noises coming from the machine. We can uncover the reason of the loud noise and decide whether we should repair or replace the broken parts in the washing machine. The cause of the noise is often because of a broken motor or worn-out belt or bearings.

WON’T TURN ON

When your washing machine won’t agitate or turn on, first check to see if it is unplugged or if a circuit breaker is flipped off. The issue might also be from a broken door latch, thermal fuse or timer. A washing machine that will not turn on or agitate means the cogs, coupler, drive belt or transmission need immediate repair or need replacement.

WILL NOT SPIN

A washing machine that does not spin means there’s something wrong with the wax motor, door latch or motor coupling. We can repair these issues right away and have your washer spinning again ASAP!

OVERFLOWS

The usual causes for a washer overflowing is either the water level pressure switch, water inlet valve or the air dome tube on the machine.

NO HOT OR COLD WATER

A broken temperature control switch or inlet hose is typically the reason why a washer won’t produce cold or hot water.

DRYER PROBLEMS

STRANGE SOUNDS

A very common dryer issue is loud sounds coming out of the appliance. Broken bearings, seals or worn-down belts often lead to strange noises from dryers.

DOES NOT DRY

A clothes dryer that doesn’t generate enough heat to dry clothes won’t be very useful. The reason for the problem is either a broken high-limit thermostat, heating element or cycling thermostat. These same parts might also cause a dryer to be too hot. Our technician will inspect the machine to determine the problem and solution.

WILL NOT TURN ON OR TUMBLE

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

WON’T SHUT OFF

The exact opposite problem happens when the dryer won’t shut off. The reason for this particular problem is either a broken door switch or timer.

TIMER WON’T ADVANCE

A dryer timer must advance in order to complete the cycle. When the timer won’t advance, it could mean there’s a broken cycling thermostat or timer motor.
