What are the most common washer repairs in Tacoma?
Washing machines are complicated appliances and there are many things that can potentially wear out or break down. But there are some repairs we see more often than others in Tacoma. This includes washers that won’t start, or even fill with water but then do nothing. We also see many washers that are leaking water, which can lead to expensive damage to your home (as well as a mess). All of these problems can be easily diagnosed and fixed, typically in a single service call. Often we can have your washer fixed in just 1-2 hours the same day you call.
What if my washer does nothing when I turn it on?
There are several possible causes for this. We can check:
- Whether the washer is receiving power from the wall outlet
- If the washer thinks the lid is open even when it’s closed
- If the washer is stuck in a “pause” cycle or the knob that controls it isn’t working
- Whether the motor or another crucial component is broken
Other than the motor, most of these repairs are fairly inexpensive. All of them can be handled quickly.
My washer fills with water but won’t actually start. What do I do?
It usually means your washer cannot tell that it’s full of water. Every washer contains a pressure switch which tells the washer when the water is up to the selected level, allowing it to start its cycle. If this pressure switch is broken or the water isn’t quite reaching the level it should be at, the washer just sits there full of water doing nothing.
Occasionally, the problem is not the pressure switch but a belt inside the washer. When the belt wears out it may not be able to spin the washer anymore.
What if my washer works only some of the time?
Your motor is overheating. This is unfortunately common when a washer reaches middle age, or if it sees a lot of heavy use. When the washer cools down it will work again. However, this is a symptom of a much more serious problem—it’s best to call a repairman now before it fails completely (and before it needs a more expensive repair).
My washer is leaking water. What do I do?
This is a problem with the gaskets or seals inside the washer. Every washer has rubber gaskets between various parts, and virtually all of them serve just one purpose: to keep the water inside. Over time, gaskets can wear out or crack, allowing water to trickle through. This is more common on front-loading washers but it can happen on any kind of washing machine.
