Washing Machine Repair

Washing Machine Repair

A few months ago, a client called to request an emergency washing machine repair. She had woken up in the morning, tossed in a load of laundry and stepped out to the walk the dog. When she returned, the entire home was filled with rubber-scented smoke. It was obviously concerning, and luckily, we were able to get someone to her home that same day.

In her case, the machine she had at her home experienced a belt failure. Our technicians were able to remove the old, worn belt and replace it with a new one. Yet belt failure isn’t the only type of problems that washing machines experience. Below are just a few of the more common reasons we’re called to assist people with washing machine repair.

Water pump problems

The main function of a water pump is to drain and circulate water. When the pump stopsworking and/or it develops a blockage, the drum won’t spin. The machine willstill sound like it’s functioning, but upon closer look, you’ll notice thatsomething is amiss.

If the pump’s seal is bad, water will start to leak and drip from the bottom of your machine. This will obvious cause a huge mess!

The most common reasons that people need to contact a washing machine repairman relates to a bad motor. If the motor won’t turn on, this isn’t something you should attempt to fix on your own. You should always contact a professional appliance repair company to help with this type of job.
