Our Washer Repair Services in the DC area
DC appliance repair and service all brands and models of Washers & Washing Machines in the DC Area. Because washing machines do so many things, they may be harder to diagnose than they are to repair. This is due to the special timing cycles that operate valves and motors that turn water on, spin the tub, drain water, and control the water temperature. But diagnosis is possible: All it takes is common sense and patience. In this article, we will tell you where to look for trouble in your washing machine and how to make some quick repairs if a part malfunctions. After we get a few preliminaries out of the way, we'll dive right in to some diagnostic checks for your washing machine.
Note: Many newer washers include electronic diagnostics that can be interpreted from the owner's manual.
Caution: Before you do any work on a washer, make sure it's unplugged. Disconnect the grounding wire and the water hoses.
A washing machine is basically a big tub that repeatedly fills with water and then drains, spins to wring clothes dry, and has a device for stirring things up-- either an agitator in the middle of a top-load machine or a rolling drum in the case of a front-loader.
The four cycles that every washer performs are fill, wash, drain, and spin.
Though there are a number of problems that you can fix quite simply, washing machines have a variety of devices and controls that, when they go wrong, are better left in the hands of an appliance washer repair man. Make sure you either find the best prices for DC Washer Repair companies or just simply pick up the phone and we will guarantee lowest pricing for your Washer Repair needs in the DC area.
Typical Washing Machine Repairs or Problems in the DC area
Some problems that commonly occur with a clothes washer are that it: does not agitate, does not drain the washer, does not run the washer, shake the washer, vibrate, move, leak, does not spin, leak or has the wrong water. Don’t fret before calling your DC Washer Repair Service experts.
If your washer doesn't run, be sure it's plugged in and that the receptacle works (the circuit hasn't overloaded). Before working on the washing machine, be sure to unplug it.
If it doesn't fill, the water inlet screens may be blocked. Clean or replace them. (Check your owner's manual for the DC location of the screens; they're often located at one end of the supply hoses, or you may have to remove a panel to access them.) Other reason for not filling may be that either the timer or temperature selector is broken--both of these are repairs for an appliance repairperson.
If your washer doesn't spin, check to see if the clothes have jammed or are unbalanced in the drum before calling a repairperson. Unbalanced clothes will also cause a washer to shudder or “walk.” If straightening out the load doesn't stop the washer from shaking, look at the feet underneath and be sure they are properly adjusted to keep the washer sitting level on the floor (you just turn them to move them up or down). Don’t call the Appliance Washer Repair in DC for pricing just yet.
To prevent problems, follow good maintenance procedures. Use the right amount of detergent for your washer and your water hardness, make sure the machine is level, and don't overload it for the cycle chosen. If you follow good maintenance you will not have to spend money and find the lowest pricing for washer repairs in the DC area.
Because washing machine hoses are under constant pressure, check periodically for wear because they can flood your home in DC if they burst when you're away. You can prevent this by installing lever-type shutoff valves (shown top right). With these, you can easily turn off the levers for both hot and cold water between wash days. Again by properly maintaining and checking your washer machines, you save a lot of money by not having to look for discount on DC Appliance Repair Companies.
