Fixing Your Washer And Dryer
Let's face it, household appliances are meant to make our already busy lives a little easier. They do a job and they work hard for us when we need them too. Your washer and dryer are the epitomai of that. These hard-working machines make sure that we always have clean clothes and that we don't have to waste our valuable time and money at the laundromat.
The worst is when something happens to your washer and/or dryer and they have to be fixed. This can put a real damper on your daily routine and the piles of laundry that will collect around the house are just unsightly.
There are a variety of problems that can happen to your washer and dryer. Here are just a few.
Leaks are the most common problem that our customers call us about. There are a few different things that can cause this to happen. A broken water inlet valve, a worn-out pump, and broken door seals can all cause your washing machine to leak.
When the washer won't agitate, your clothes aren't going to get clean. Broken agitator cogs, a bad coupler, a malfunctioning transmission, or a faulty drive belt can all cause this to happen.
If the washing machine timer isn't working, the washer isn't going to progress through the necessary cycles to get your clothes clean. This can happen if the lid switch, drain pump, timer motor, or the water level control needs to be fixed or replaced.
These are just some of the issues that you may come across with your washing machine.
If the dryer is working but it won't heat up, it's really of no use to you. There are a few things that can cause this to happen. The thermal resistor may be broken or the thermal fuse may need to be replaced.
If your clothes are taking too long to dry, it is likely that the lint filter is going to be clogged up with lint. This is a simple enough problem to handle but it needs to be dealt with quickly because this can be a fire hazard if it isn't dealt with. If this is not the problem, it may be that the vent system is clogged.
An unlevel dryer can cause the dryer to shake and make loud unusual noises. You should take the time to make sure that the dryer is sitting level because this shaking could cause damage to other parts of the machine.
You could try to use the owner's manual to diagnose the problems and handle them yourself. If you plan on doing the repairs yourself, make sure that the machine is completely disconnected from the power source.
