WASHING MACHINE PROBLEMS

STRANGE NOISES

A common type of washer repair is for strange noises coming out of the washer. Repairmen can diagnose the cause of the loud noise and determine whether we should repair or replace the broken parts in the washing machine. The origin of the noise is often due to a worn-down pump motor or worn-out belt or bearings.

DOES NOT AGITATE

When your washer doesn’t agitate or turn on, check to see if it is not plugged in or if a circuit breaker is flipped off. The problem could also be due to a broken door latch, thermal fuse or timer. A washer that will not turn on means the agitator cogs, drive belt, coupler or transmission need repair or replacement.

WON’T SPIN

A washing machine that will not spin means there’s an issue with the door latch, wax motor or motor coupling. Calhoun Appliance Repair is able to repair these problems quickly and have your washer spinning again very soon!

OVERFLOWS

The common reasons for a washer overflowing is either the water level pressure switch, water inlet valve or the air dome tube on the machine.

WATER TEMPERATURE PROBLEMS

A broken temperature control switch or inlet hose is typically the reason a washing machine does not produce hot or cold water.

DRYER PROBLEMS

STRANGE SOUNDS

The most typical dryer malfunction is loud sounds coming from the appliance. Broken seals, bearings or worn belts can lead to loud noises from clothes dryers.

DOES NOT DRY

A dryer that won’t produce enough heat to dry clothes isn’t very helpful. The source of the problem is likely a broken heating element, high limit thermostat or cycling thermostat. These same parts could cause a dryer to be too hot. The technician will inspect the dryer to determine the problem and solution.

WON’T TUMBLE OR TURN ON

When your dryer does not turn on, you will want to be positive the appliance is plugged in and all of the circuit breakers are on. If the machine isn’t unplugged and still will not turn on or tumble, the high-limit thermostat, heating element or cycling thermostat will need to be repaired or replaced.

DOESN’T SHUT OFF

The opposite issue happens when the dryer will not shut off. The cause of this particular issue is usually either a broken door switch or timer.

TIMER WILL NOT ADVANCE

A dryer timer needs to advance in order to complete the cycle. If the timer doesn’t advance, it might mean there is a broken cycling thermostat or timer motor.
