Typical Washer & Dryer Issues:
Most common types of washing machine repairs
- Drainage Problems: This typically occurs when the washer isn't draining correctly or not at all, possibly due to a blocked or damaged drain pump.
- Water Leaks: Leaks can occur due to faulty water inlet valves, door seals, or hose connections.
- Agitation Issues: This happens when the washer isn't agitating during its cycle, often because of a worn drive belt, faulty agitator assembly, or motor issues.
- Spin Cycle Problems: When the washer isn't spinning correctly or at all, this could be due to a defective lid switch or a malfunctioning motor coupling.
- Washer Doesn't Start: Electrical problems, issues with the timer switch, or a faulty start switch can cause the machine not to start.
- Excessive Noise or Vibration: Often this is due to an unbalanced load, but it could also be an issue with the drum or motor mount.
- Overflows: This can happen if the water level switch, water inlet valve, or float switch is malfunctioning.
- Washer Door or Lid Won't Lock: This is often due to a faulty door lock motor and switch assembly.
- Washing Machine Won't Fill with Water: This can be caused by a problem with the water inlet valve, water level switch, or the pressure switch.
- Temperature Problems: This usually occurs when the washing machine isn't filling with hot or cold water as it should, due to faulty temperature control switches or problems with the water inlet valve.
Most common types of dryer repairs
- Dryer Won't Heat Up: This could be due to a variety of issues, including problems with the thermal fuse, heating element, or thermostat.
- Dryer Overheats: Usually, this happens when the vent is blocked or the heating element is malfunctioning.
- Dryer Won't Turn On: Electrical issues or problems with the start switch can prevent a dryer from starting.
- Dryer Stops Mid-Cycle: This can occur if the motor overheats, or there's a problem with the timer or thermostat.
- Excessive Noise or Vibration: This is often due to worn-out drum bearings, rollers, or belts.
- Drum Doesn't Spin: Usually, this is caused by a broken drive belt, worn out drum rollers, or a faulty motor.
- Dryer Doesn't Stop: This usually happens when the door switch or timer is not working correctly.
- Dryer Takes Too Long to Dry Clothes: This is often due to a clogged vent, problems with the heating element, or a faulty thermostat.
- Dryer Won't Cool Down: This problem often occurs when the cycling thermostat or the cool down thermostat is defective.
- Dryer Has a Burning Smell: This could be due to a lint blockage in the vent, a problem with the motor, or the drum seal is worn out and causing friction.
