WASHING MACHINE PROBLEMS

STRANGE SOUNDS

The most common type of washer repair is for strange sounds coming from the machine. F&S Forest Hills Appliance Repair knows how to uncover the cause of the loud noise and decide whether we need to repair or replace the broken parts. The source of the sound is typically due to a worn-down pump motor or worn belt or bearings.

DOESN’T TURN ON

If your washer does not agitate, first check to see if it’s not plugged in or if a circuit breaker might have flipped off. The issue could also be from a broken latch, thermal fuse or timer. A washing machine that doesn’t turn on or agitate means the agitator cogs, coupler, drive belt or transmission need immediate repair or replacement.

DOESN’T SPIN

A washing machine that doesn’t spin means there is a problem with the door latch, wax motor or motor coupling. We can fix these issues fast and have your washer spinning again very soon!

OVERFLOWS

The typical causes for a washer overflowing is the water inlet valve, water level pressure switch or the air dome tube on the machine.

NO HOT OR COLD WATER

A malfunctioning temperature control switch or inlet hose is often the reason why a washing machine does not produce cold or hot water.

DRYER PROBLEMS

STRANGE SOUNDS

A very common dryer malfunction is loud noises coming from the appliance. Broken bearings, seals or worn belts often lead to strange sounds from clothes dryers.

DOESN’T DRY

A dryer that doesn’t create enough heat to dry clothing isn’t very helpful. The source of the issue is either a broken heating element, high limit thermostat or cycling thermostat. The exact same parts might also cause a dryer to be too hot. The technician will troubleshoot the machine to determine the problem and solution.

WON’T TUMBLE OR TURN ON

If your dryer doesn’t turn on, you first want to be positive the dryer is plugged in and that all of the circuit breakers are on. If the machine isn’t unplugged and still does not start or tumble, the heating element, high limit thermostat or cycling thermostat will likely have to be repaired or replaced.

DOES NOT TURN OFF

The exact opposite issue is if the dryer does not turn off. The cause of this issue is usually either a broken door switch or timer.

TIMER DOESN’T ADVANCE

A dryer timer needs to advance in order to complete the cycle. When the timer will not advance, it could mean there is a broken cycling thermostat or timer motor.
