Why did my appliance break down?
Although the number of issues that can come up with a washer and dryer is huge, there are common issues that we see all the time. Most of the time one issue quickly becomes two, and then three, and so on, so that makes troubleshooting the issue tough, but not for a professional.
We advise against DIY repairs for any kind of appliances because it poses risk to you and those around you. If you’re not certified to repair appliances, you could void your warranty or break your appliance altogether. Costing you a bunch of cash. That’s why it’s cheaper and more cost-effective to hire a professional.
Common problems and their reparation
Although both appliances are usually quite noisy anyway, if it becomes louder than usual you should turn the machine off straight away. Your issue could be down to the motor, shock absorbers, pumps or roller supports, but it’s important to ensure your appliance is level on the ground.
