The most common type of washer repair is for loud noises coming from the machine. A professional can diagnose the source of the loud noise and determine whether he will need to repair or replace the broken parts. The cause of the noise is often due to a broken pump motor or worn belt or bearings.
WON’T TURN ON/AGITATE
If your washing machine won’t turn on, first check to see if it is unplugged or if a circuit breaker flipped off. The problem could also be due to a broken door latch, thermal fuse or timer. A washer that won’t agitate means the agitator cogs, coupler, drive belt or transmission need repair or replacement.
A washer that won’t spin means there is a problem with the wax motor, door latch or motor coupling. There are several Oshkosh appliance repair companies that can repair these issues in no time at all and have your washing machine spinning again ASAP! We will find the right one for you!
The common causes for a washer overflowing is the water inlet valve, water level pressure switch or the air dome tube on the machine.
NO HOT/COLD WATER
A broken temperature control switch or inlet hose is often the reason why a washing machine will not produce cold or hot water.
The most common dryer problem is loud noises coming from the machine. Broken bearings, seals or worn belts lead to loud noises from dryers.
NO HEAT/WON’T DRY
A dryer that doesn’t produce enough heat to dry clothing isn’t very useful. The cause of the problem is either a broken heating element, high limit thermostat or cycling thermostat. The same parts could cause a dryer to be too hot. A service technician will inspect the machine to determine the problem and solution.
WON’T TURN ON/TUMBLE
If your dryer won’t turn on, you will want to be sure the appliance is plugged in and all of the circuit breakers are on. If the machine is plugged in and still won’t start or tumble, the heating element, high limit thermostat or cycling thermostat will need to be repaired or replaced.
WON’T TURN OFF
The opposite problem is if the dryer won’t turn off. The cause of this issue is either a broken door switch or timer.
TIMER WON’T ADVANCE
A dryer timer needs to advance in order to complete the cycle. If the timer doesn’t advance, it could mean there is a broken cycling thermostat or timer motor.
