Washer & Dryer Issues and Solutions
Updated: Feb 8
When either your washer or dryer stops working, the hassle of trips to the laundromat, the mountains of unwashed clothes, the process of replacing the appliance, is just not worth it when you can simply repair it.
Here are 3 common washer & dryer issues and Legacy Appliance Services’ Tips on how to address them:
Washer/Dryer Won’t Turn ON
Issue with the power supply
Faulty door switch, thermal fuse, thermostat, or start switch
Check outlet and electrical panel
For this issue, unless you are an electrician yourself, we would recommend calling us at 954-466-5691 to help you better diagnose the issue or to request one of our repair professionals.
Washer Won’t Drain Properly
Clogged drain hose / faulty drain pump
Excessive detergent usage
Unclogging a drain hose or repairing a drain pump is a job best left for a repairman
If you suspect the cause to be excessive detergent usage, try reducing the amount of detergent you put for a few cycles and see if that fixes the problem
Dryer is On, but Doesn’t Tumble
Worn/Broken Belt, seized motor, worn drum support rollers
Call one of our repair professionals to diagnose the issue and replace the damaged/worn parts
If you are experiencing one of these three problems, or any other problem such as washer leakage, overheating dryer, malfunctioning water drum, etc., give our professionals a call, and we’ll help you diagnose and troubleshoot the problem. If needed, we can also send one of our repair professionals to get your laundry loads running again.
