Common Washing Machine Problems
Aside from a whirring or hum, any noise from your washing machine should be investigated. Loud noises can point to problems with the motor, the pump, the belt, or the shock absorbers, or even the impeller. This issue will likely require parts replacement to fix.
Leaks from your washing machine are normally caused by a faulty hose. If the hose has become worn or damaged then it is past repairs and will need replacing. The pump could also be causing leaks too and would need to be replaced. Similarly, if the water inlet valve is to blame then that will need replacing too.
The Washing Machine Won’t Spin
If the machine turns on just fine, and is able to fill and drain, but refuses to spin, then you’ve probably got a direct drive motor coupling failure on your hands which will need repairing or replacing.
It may also be an issue with the door, as in most modern washers the cycle won’t start unless the door is closed properly. This may indicate an issue with the switch which we can check for you. It could also be that the door lock assembly needs changing.
Common Dryer Problems
The Dryer Won’t Turn on
If the dryer isn’t turning on then you’ve probably got a disruption somewhere in the power supply. This can be caused by damaged switches or wiring, or issues with the power outlet. More simply, it could be a problem with the fuse or breaker which has cut off the power. Check these first, but if you’re still concerned, don’t hesitate to contact us. You may have an issue with the terminal block, the thermostat or the door switch.
The Dryer Doesn’t Heat Up
A dryer that fails to heat often has restricted airflow. You can try vacuuming your air duct and see if this helps the problem. If not then you may have issues with the thermal fuse which may have tripped and needed replacing. You could potentially have a faulty heating element on your hand which will need a replacement, or you could be struggling with timer, temperature switch, or thermostat problems.
