Small Maintenance Tips
Here are a few maintenance tips that you can do yourself to help add years to your appliance’s life. If the repairs, however, are more complex, then give us a call. You don’t want to risk any extra damage to your machines or injure yourself in any way.
Clean the filter: This task takes less than five minutes and, if done monthly, can greatly reduce the risk of flooding.
Clean the lint filter: The machine usually will let you know that the lint filter is full. Every second or third wash, check the lint filter and, if necessary, empty and clean out the filter.
Hot Cycle on Empty: Once a month, run a hot cycle on an empty machine. This helps to clean out any residue or film that builds up over time.
Common Issues that Washers and Dryers Face
Washer Won’t Drain
If you’re facing drainage issues, then this could point to several things. Make sure that the drains and hose aren’t blocked. If both of these components are clear, then turn off the machine and give us a call.
Leaks may not seem like a big deal. However, they can lead to bigger issues, and even damage your floor or wall. Fortunately for you, leaks are usually easy to fix, so don’t hesitate to give us a call.
In this case, the timer has most likely worn out and needs replacing. This isn’t a repair to attempt on your own. So, give us a call and let us work our magic!
Dryer Drum Won’t Spin
In 90% of cases, this is due to the belt being worn or frayed. The roller and motor may also need to be replaced.
There is a clog somewhere in the mechanism. Start by turning off the machine and leave it to cool for a little while. Make sure that the lint trap and vent aren’t blocked. Clean them out, if necessary. If this doesn’t change anything, then the heating coil and the thermostat need servicing. Let us take care of that for you.
