WASHING MACHINE PROBLEMS

STRANGE SOUNDS

The most common type of washing machine repair is for strange noises coming from the appliance. We can troubleshoot the source of the loud noise and decide if we should repair or replace the broken parts. The cause of the noise is usually because of a broken pump motor or worn-out bearings or belt.

WON’T AGITATE

In the event your washing machine does not agitate, first check to see if it’s not plugged in or if a circuit breaker is flipped off. The issue could also be due to a broken latch, thermal fuse or timer. A washer that will not agitate means the cogs, drive belt, coupler or transmission need immediate repair or replacement.

DOESN’T SPIN

A washing machine that will not spin means there is an issue with the door latch, wax motor or motor coupling. We can fix these issues in no time at all and have your washing machine spinning again very soon!

OVERFLOWS

The typical 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 usually the reason a washer does not produce hot or cold water.

DRYER PROBLEMS

STRANGE SOUNDS

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

WON’T DRY

A dryer that doesn’t produce enough heat to dry laundry is not very useful. The source of the issue is likely a broken high-limit thermostat, heating element or cycling thermostat. These exact same parts could cause a dryer to be too hot. The repairman will inspect the appliance to determine the issue and solution.

WILL NOT TURN ON OR TUMBLE

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

WILL NOT TURN OFF

The exact opposite issue is if the dryer won’t turn off. The cause of this particular issue is usually either a broken door switch or timer.

TIMER DOES NOT ADVANCE

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