Thanks to the washer and dryer we don’t have to wash our clothes by hand any more, which helps make Tide Pods actually usable. A staple in the American household for decades, washers and dryers work hard to make our live easier. Sometimes though, they work a little too hard and need a little maintenance. In today’s blog, the professional washer and dryer repair company at Omega Force Services in Twin Cities will go over some of the most common problems that may affect your washer and dryer at some point. We’ll give you a little advice about how to fix your washer and dryer, but if you don’t feel comfortable fixing them yourself, then give your local service hero technicians a call to come help.
I (Don’t) Have The Power
Like most appliances in your home, your washer and dryer will need power to work properly. Check to see if the outlet your appliance is plugged into is working, either with a multimeter or by pulling out the cord and plugging something else into it. If not, check your circuit breaker to make sure nothing has been tripped. Your motor may also be experiencing a similar or opposite problem depending on your situation. The motor of your washer and dryer may not be getting enough power to do its job. Inversely, it may have too much power going to it, causing it to overload. The motor may also overheat when it’s used too much or a load of laundry is too big.
Drain The Small Pool
Because water goes into your washer in order to clean your clothes, that water will need to be removed in order for your washer to operate normally. Clogged drain hoses may be causing your problem, which is an easy fix. However, if the problem is with your drain pump, then you may have to do a lot of work if you want to fix the problem yourself. You could also have debris, such as rogue pocket change, mountains of lint, or forgotten trinkets, clogging your hose or pump, which will greatly inhibit your washer’s ability to drain water. If you use too much detergent, this may also keep your washer from properly draining due to too many suds.
Shaking, Rattling, And Rolling
Washers and dryers are made to move, but if they’re dancing all around your laundry room, then chances are there’s something wrong with your washer and dryer. One of the easiest problems to deal with may be that you put too much laundry in at a single time. While modern washers and dryers can handle bigger laundry loads than ever before, they still have a limit when it comes to a single load. Your laundry may also be unbalanced when the machine begins its job. Another problem could be that the feet or base of the machine isn’t completely level on the floor. If there’s something under your washer and dryer causing it to come off balance, then you may have some appliances that will wander around the room while they work.
