WASHING MACHINE PROBLEMS
The most common type of washing machine repair is for strange noises coming out of the machine. Repairmen is able to diagnose the reason of the loud noise and determine whether we will need to repair or replace the broken parts. The source of the noise is typically because of a broken pump motor or worn belt or bearings.
DOES NOT AGITATE
When your washing machine won’t turn on or agitate, first take a look to see if it is not plugged in or if a circuit breaker is flipped off. The issue might also be because of a broken door latch, thermal fuse or timer. A washer that does not turn on or agitate means the cogs, drive belt, coupler or the transmission needs immediate repair or need replacement.
WILL NOT SPIN
A washer that won’t spin means there’s an issue with the wax motor, door latch or motor coupling. Ally Appliance Repair can fix these problems in no time at all and have your washer spinning again very soon!
The usual reasons for a washing machine overflowing is either the water inlet valve, water level pressure switch or the air dome tube on the washing machine.
WATER TEMPERATURE ISSUES
A malfunctioning temperature control switch or inlet hose is usually the reason why a washer will not produce cold or hot water.
A very typical dryer malfunction is loud noises coming from the appliance. Broken seals, bearings or worn-down belts can lead to loud noises from dryers.
A clothes dryer that won’t produce enough heat to dry clothes is not very useful. The cause of the problem is either a broken high-limit thermostat, heating element or cycling thermostat. The same parts could cause a dryer to be too hot too. The repairman will inspect the machine to uncover the problem and solution.
WON’T TURN ON OR TUMBLE
When your dryer will not turn on, you want to be sure the dryer is not unplugged and every one of the circuit breakers are flipped on. If the appliance isn’t unplugged and still won’t start or tumble, the heating element, high limit thermostat or cycling thermostat will have to be repaired or replaced.
WILL NOT TURN OFF
The opposite problem is if the dryer will not turn off. The reason for this issue is usually either a broken door switch or timer.
TIMER DOESN’T ADVANCE
A dryer timer has to advance in order to complete the cycle. When the timer does not advance, it might mean there is a broken cycling thermostat or timer motor.
