Washing Machine Repair
Washing machines are one of the most useful appliances we can have in our homes. These beauties wash our clothes, towels and sheets whenever we need, reducing trips to the laundromat and saving us money and time. When washing machines stop working, it can be frustrating. More than that, depending on what the issue is, a broken washing machine can also be dangerous and lead to more problems than just it being broken. If you are noticing issues with your washing machine, get in touch and let us know.
If you are running through a washing cycle and notice that water is coming from either underneath your washing machine or escaping through the lid, you could have a few problems going on. The easiest problem to fix would be that the hot and cold water hookups are not connected correctly. However, if this is not the case, something bigger is going on. If your connections are tight and there is still flooding happening, it means that there is either a crack or break in your machine. Luckily for you, we can fix this if we catch it early enough!
If you are trying to use your washing machine and notice that everything is working correctly and it is filling with water, but the unit inside isn’t spinning, there is definitely something going on. This could be a pretty simple fix, like lining up the drum with the pieces that move it back and forth. Or, if the drum is lined up correctly, but still not spinning, it could be that the motor in the washing machine is failing. We can fix a broken motor, which will ultimately cost less than a new machine and get your working like new.
Not Filling With Water
If you are attempting to use your washing machine, and realize that it’s turning on but not filling with water, there a definite issue. Like in a flooding situation, the first thing to do is check your water lines and make sure that the connections are open. However, if the water lines are open and water still isn’t coming in, there could be an issue with some kind of blockage in your appliance. If this is the case, we can come out, take your washing machine apart and clean it to the point where water can flow freely.
While using your washing machine and having it complete a cycle, if you notice that, when that cycle is done, there is still water in the washing machine, this could be a pretty huge drainage issue. Because draining is one of the main parts of a washing machine cycle, if this isn’t happening, your appliance is not functioning. The drainage issue could be cause by something stuck in your drain lines or it could be a blockage further down the exhaust system. Either way, we can come in, clean the drain out and see exactly what’s causing the trouble.
