What are Some Common Issues that Happen to Washers and Dryers?
The average washer or dryer lasts for about 10 years. There are ways to expand their lifep, but ultimately, these are heavily used machines that get a lot of wear and tear. Our techs will educate you on some of the ways you can extend your equipment’s lifep, but it all comes down to keeping them clean and addressing potential issues right away.
Here are some of the most common issues we see in washing machines:
Loud noises. Odd or loud noises usually come from a broken pump motor, worn out belt or bad bearings. Our techs will evaluate all of these parts to see where the problems are coming from.
Not spinning. Another frequent issue is a washer that won’t spin. How are you going to get your clothes clean? Usually it comes down to a bad lid switch, faulty internal timer or malfunctioning pressure switch. We can fix any of these problems.
Not turning on. If your washer won’t turn out, there’s still hope. It could be a broken door latch, timer or thermal fuse. If the washer is not agitating, a different part is probably involved such as the coupler, drive belt or transmission.
Here are some of the most common issues that we see in household dryers:
Strange noises. Dryers can make odd sounds, too. If you hear anything unusual, contact our dryer repair techs in Los Angeles. It could be a failed drum seal that needs to be replaced.
Not heating up. Sometimes the dryer will run but not heat up. You’ll notice this when you take out the clothes and they’re still wet! Usually this is due to a faulty thermal fuse or heating element that needs replacing.
Shuts off. If you’ve noticed that your dryer runs for a short time and then turns off, it could be a broken thermostat. Without a working thermostat, the dryer won’t know when to turn on and off.
