WASHING MACHINE PROBLEMS

LOUD NOISES

The most reoccurring type of washer repair is for loud sounds coming out of the appliance. Repairmen can uncover the cause of the loud noise and decide if we need to repair or replace the broken appliance parts in the washing machine. The source of the sound is usually due to a broken pump motor or worn bearings or belt.

DOES NOT AGITATE

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

WILL NOT SPIN

A washer that will not spin means there is something wrong with the wax motor, door latch or motor coupling. DC Appliance Repair ASAP will fix these problems right away and have your washing machine spinning again ASAP!

OVERFLOWING

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

WATER TEMPERATURE ISSUES

A malfunctioning temperature control switch or inlet hose is usually the reason a washer doesn’t produce hot or cold water.

DRYER PROBLEMS

STRANGE NOISES

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

DOES NOT DRY

A clothes dryer that will not generate enough heat to dry clothes is not very useful. The reason for the issue is likely a broken heating element, high limit thermostat or cycling thermostat. The same parts sometimes cause a dryer to be too hot too. Our repairman will inspect the dryer to determine the problem and solution.

WILL NOT TUMBLE OR TURN ON

When your dryer won’t turn on, you first will want to be sure the dryer is plugged in and that all of the circuit breakers are on. If the machine is plugged in and still doesn’t 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 opposite issue is if the dryer will not turn off. The cause of this problem is either a broken timer or door switch.

TIMER DOESN’T ADVANCE

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