WASHING MACHINE PROBLEMS

LOUD SOUNDS

A reoccurring type of washer repair is for loud sounds coming from the appliance. Technicians knows how to diagnose the cause of the loud noise and decide if we will need to repair or replace the broken appliance parts. The origin of the noise is usually because of a worn-down pump motor or worn-out belt or bearings.

DOESN’T AGITATE

If your washer won’t turn on or agitate, first check to see if it is unplugged or if a circuit breaker might have flipped off. The issue could also be because of a broken door latch, thermal fuse or timer. A washer that does not agitate means the agitator cogs, coupler, drive belt or the transmission need immediate repair or replacement.

WON’T SPIN

A washer that won’t spin means there’s something wrong with the door latch, wax motor or motor coupling. We will fix these problems quickly and have your washing machine spinning again ASAP!

OVERFLOWING

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

WATER TEMPERATURE ISSUES

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

DRYER PROBLEMS

STRANGE NOISES

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

WON’T DRY

A clothes dryer that will not produce enough heat to dry laundry is not very helpful. The reason for the problem is likely a broken high-limit thermostat, heating element or cycling thermostat. These exact same parts sometimes cause a dryer to be too hot too. The technician will troubleshoot the appliance to determine the problem and solution.

WON’T TURN ON OR TUMBLE

If your dryer won’t turn on, you first want to be positive the dryer is not unplugged and that every one of the circuit breakers are on. If the appliance is plugged in and still doesn’t start or tumble, the heating element, high limit thermostat or cycling thermostat will likely need to be repaired or replaced.

DOESN’T TURN OFF

The opposite problem happens when the dryer doesn’t turn off. The reason for this issue is usually either a broken door switch or timer.

TIMER WON’T ADVANCE

A dryer timer needs to 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.
