WASHING MACHINE PROBLEMS

STRANGE SOUNDS

The most reoccurring type of washing machine repair is for strange sounds coming out of the washer. Technicians knows how to uncover the reason of the strange sound and determine whether we should repair or replace the broken parts. The origin of the sound is typically because of a broken motor or worn-out bearings or belt.

WILL NOT AGITATE

When your washer does not agitate, check to see if it is not plugged in or if a circuit breaker flipped off. The problem might also be because of a broken door latch, thermal fuse or timer. A washer that won’t turn on or agitate means the agitator cogs, drive belt, coupler or transmission need repair or replacement.

WON’T SPIN

A washing machine that doesn’t spin means there is something wrong with the door latch, wax motor or motor coupling. Yates Appliance Repair can repair these problems quickly and have your washer spinning again very soon!

OVERFLOWING

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

WATER TEMPERATURE ISSUES

A broken temperature control switch or inlet hose is often the reason why a washer doesn’t produce hot or cold water.

DRYER PROBLEMS

LOUD SOUNDS

The most common dryer issue is loud noises coming out of the machine. Broken bearings, seals or worn-down belts often lead to strange sounds from clothes dryers.

DOES NOT HEAT

A clothes dryer that doesn’t generate 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 exact same parts sometimes cause a dryer to be too hot too. Our technician will troubleshoot the machine to determine the issue and solution.

WON’T TUMBLE OR TURN ON

If your dryer will not turn on, you first want to be sure the dryer is plugged in and every one of the circuit breakers are on. If the dryer is plugged in and still doesn’t turn on or tumble, the high-limit thermostat, heating element or cycling thermostat will likely need to be repaired or replaced.

WILL NOT SHUT OFF

The opposite issue is if the dryer will not shut off. The cause of this particular issue is usually either a broken timer or door switch.

TIMER WON’T ADVANCE

A dryer timer must advance in order to complete the drying cycle. If the timer won’t advance, it could mean there’s a broken cycling thermostat or timer motor.
