What Went Wrong?
A range of things could go wrong with your washing and drying appliances. Often, symptoms continue for extended periods without attention gradually getting worse until your machine stops working correctly. This can not only impair the life-span of your machine but cost you more in the long run than regular servicing and fixing when a fault first develops.
Attempting self-repairs on your washing machine or dryer can seem like a tempting option; however, we strongly advise against dismantling and attempting to repair the fault yourself.
This not only risks invalidating your warranty but also risks further, irreparable damage to your appliance.
Common problems, troubleshooting, and repair
Unusual or excessive noise emitted by your washing machine or dryer is often one of the primary indicators that something is about to go wrong. A range of belts, fans, and motors work in synchronicity to keep your appliances running how they should. Unusual noise suggests one or more of these components are working incorrectly.
If your washing machine or indeed your dryer (although less common) is leaking, and water is exiting the machine, a faulty hose is the most common problem, quickly followed by the water seals which degrade over time.
If the washing machine turns on and fills with water but the drum fails to spin correctly, the fault is likely to be a direct drive motor coupling failure.
If your washing or drying appliance fails to power on or shuts down unexpectedly, a blown fuse is a common culprit. Although fuses fault over time and need replacing, sometimes this can be indicative of a different fault, such as loose or damaged wiring. It is essential for fire prevention reasons if your appliance continues to blow a fuse after replacement that you contact Tyler’s Appliance Repairs to diagnose and rectify the problem.
Dryer Element Not Heating
Airflow issues are one of the first things to check when your dryer fails to hear up correctly. It may be worth cleaning your air duct and filters thoroughly to see if this provides any noticeable benefit to the drying process. If this does not fix the problem, our expert technicians will be able to diagnose the fault and repair or replace the failing part, whichever is most appropriate to provide a long term repair.
