The common issues and troubleshooting them
Loud noise from washer/dryer
Both the washing machine and dryer naturally make noise when in use, but if it becomes louder and/or begins to make strange sounds like cracking, crashing or a whirring sound, there could be a larger issue. This should get checked right away to ensure that the issue does not become worse and damage more than one internal part. Our professionals are able to assist.
Washing machine leaking
The last thing you want is a leaking appliance. It can damage other appliances, the floors and walls of your house and the appliance itself. The first thing to check if your washing machine is leaking, would be the hose. Ensure the hose doesn’t have any visible damage and is able to provide water to the machine. You may need a replacement, call our technicians today.
The appliance won’t turn on at all
After ensuring that your breaker isn’t tripped and that power is actively flowing to your connected outlet, you may need to check the fuse within the plug your device is connected to. If all of this has been checked, give Dan’s Appliance Repair a call and book your appointment.
My dryer isn’t heating up
In order to dry your clothes effectively, your dryer must produce heat. If it isn’t producing enough heat to dry your clothes, it could possibly be the airflow with an issue. Ensure the filter is clear and not blocked by bits of material from past washes. A vacuum can fix this.
Should I consider a replacement?
The average lifespan for a dryer is 13 years, pretty long for an appliance. 11 years is the lifespan of a washing machine, trailing slightly behind.
