Washing machines and dryers are very important to our households, they make sure our clothes are clean and dry, in under one day. They save us time and save us from having to wash clothes, by hand.
Unfortunately for these two “wonder-devices”, they are prone to break down. Especially the washing machine which is connected to water and electricity, both of which don’t mix. And repairs are better left to the professionals.
When appliances in our household do break, the frustration can be world-ending and the amount of laundry piled up can cause a meltdown. But by acting quickly to avoid this, by calling Scott’s Appliance Repair, you can avoid frustration and have your appliance back in operation before the end of the day. With a team of certified professionals ready to help.
Why do they break down?
A washing machine and dryer can break down for many reasons. But while some people may leave these issues unattended to, it’s best not to do this as one issue can quickly become more, and more. Fixing appliances is no easy task unless you’re a professional like those at Scott’s Appliance Repair.
By attempting DIY, which we do not recommend, you could void your warranty or cause more damage to your appliance. Which no one wants!
The common issues and troubleshooting them
Loud noise from washer/dryer
Loud noises can be quite the shock because you’ll be used to the ambient noise of a dryer or washing machine, but you’ll know when there’s an issue because it starts cracking, crashing or clanking. Before this issue worsens, you should give Scott’s Appliance Repair a call.
Washing machine leaking
Leaks can often be worst-case scenarios when it comes to your appliances. The last thing you want is damage to your home. When a leak occurs it usually comes from the water hose itself, taking a look at this before calling a professional can give the pros a better idea of what to expect. Make sure that water is flowing and there’s no external damage. If there is, call us today.
The appliance won’t turn on at all
Check your fuse in the plug, the house’s breaker hasn’t tripped and that adequate power is making it through the outlet. If you’ve checked these things already, call Scott’s Appliance Repair.
My dryer isn’t heating up
Without heat, a dryer cannot do its job. Your clothes will be a wet, creased mess pile. And that’s not a thing anyone wants when using a dryer. Usually, this is down to the filter being blocked, usually with lint. This can simply be vacuumed on a low setting to fix the issue.
Should I consider a replacement?
Both of these fantastic appliances can last a long time, washing machines at 11 years and dryers at 13 years.
But without care and maintenance, this means nothing at all. By calling Scott’s Appliance Repair you will be giving your appliance the chance to live out its full potential lifespan, running as good as new. You’ll know your appliance is in the safe hands of our certified and trained professionals. Satisfaction guaranteed.
