The common issues and troubleshooting them
Loud noise from washer/dryer
Loud noises are often a sign of impending disaster, if you notice a loud noise emitting from your appliance it could be anything from the drum roller support, the shock absorbers, one of the many pumps, a motor or even a belt. Saving yourself time by getting these issues sorted is a smart move.
Sometimes the issue is simply a drive belt that is becoming frayed, a replacement can sort this promptly.
Washing machine leaking
A common occurrence with a washing machine is leakage, sometimes severe and other times not. Usually, this is down to the hose being damaged or faulty. Replacing this is an easy fix but knowing where the issue lays before replacement is important as it could be a pump with an issue, which can also be replaced.
The appliance won’t turn on at all
Sometimes a fuse can trip in the plug for your washer or dryer, this can be replaced with some ease. Check that power is also on for the outlet connection. If you’ve checked these and it still isn’t working, call Jake’s Appliance Repair, an engineer can assist.
My dryer isn’t heating up
If the dryer is not heating up or drying the clothes, it could be down to airflow being very poor. Alternatively, lint could be building up in the filter, which can block airflow also. Cleaning the filter and ensuring that there is no blockage within the air duct should sort it. But if it doesn’t, call us for assistance.
Should I consider a replacement?
Believe it or not, a dryer could have a lifespan of 13 years, with a washer trailing behind at 11. But this is only with good maintenance and care given to the appliance. If we’re investigating an issue and find that replacing the appliance is cheaper than a repair, they will advise you. We’re here to be a trustworthy service and keep you in the loop.
