Common Washing Machine Problems

Washing machine repair is not uncommon. Such a high-use item is bound to encounter issues once in a while. Here are a few common problems:

1. Washer Isn’t Spinning

Problems with your washer’s spin cycle can be tricky… 

Sometimes, the issue may be something as simple as an unbalanced load of clothes, which clump together on one side and through the machine off. Similarly, if the machine itself is off-balance (positioned incorrectly), it may not spin properly.

On the more serious side of things, spin trouble could indicate problems with your washer’s motor, or with the spin switch inside the door.

2. Washing Machine Isn’t Draining

Often, a washing machine that won’t drain is simply the victim of a clog in the drain hose. Otherwise, the hose itself may be damaged, preventing it from draining adequately. In either case, a repair technician can help by both manually draining the machine, and the safely attending to the blockage or malfunctioning hose.

3. Washing Machine Not Dispense Detergent

Front-loading washers sometimes encounter this issue because of build-up and blockages in the detergent compartment. In many cases, simply cleaning it out can present a quick fix. In the long-term, taking care to use high-quality detergents can help to avoid the problem going forward.

If cleaning out the detergent dispenser doesn’t help, the problem may actually be with the dispensing system itself. In this case, further repairs will be needed.

4. Washing Machine is Leaking 

Your heart might stop when you see a washing machine leak, and you might wonder about how to fix a washing machine. There are some key components to check such as the seal. If the seal is worn out, then that might be the issue, and we can rectify it.

If you find it leaking during the wash cycle, you might have faulty hoses at the back of the machine. In this case, call the experts at Alpha Tech Appliance to take care of you. No matter what the issue may be, we will get down to the bottom of it and deliver you with a solid fix.

5. Washing Machine Doesn’t Finish a Cycle Properly

Did you know that if your wash cycle isn’t completed properly it can lead to issues like mold and mildew? We know this is a problem that no one wants to deal with, but we can do it for you. You might even experience an error code on your machine when this happens.

Referencing the manual may be helpful, but sometimes it may not offer answers. Some other things to check for are overloading the machine and the machine not emptying water properly. If you can’t figure it out, then you’ll need a professional’s help to fix your washing machine.

Types of Washing Machines We Repair

Washing machine repairs by Alpha Tech Appliances

Front

Front load washing machines are commonly found in houses today, as newer models are made this way. They produce a more stable wash due to not having to be balanced, as they lack a drum and spinner in the center. While you can place these washers side by side, they can also be stacked, which can save you floor space. 

Portable

Portable washing machines can be convenient for smaller homes, as they can be moved from room to room without hassle. All you need to do is attach the machine to a nearby faucet. It’s easily transportable and you can move it to any room as you wish. While these types aren’t as common, we have what it takes to fix them. 

Top loading

This is an older style of washing machine. These machines tend to have more issues like becoming unlevel and the drum becoming unbalanced. However, they still produce a reliable clean and the fixes are fairly simple. 

Washer dryer combo

A washer and dryer combo refers to a washer and dryer that are attached as one whole machine. Usually, the dryer is above the washing machine. The washing machine portion is top load.

What Does It Cost to Repair a Washing Machine?

Estimating the cost of washing machine repair will always depend on the model in question and what particular repairs are required. In a general sense, you will pay for the time of the service professional involved and for the cost of any replacement parts that are needed. The good news is, with washing machine prices only going up, you’ll likely save significant money by opting to conduct washer repair on your old machine rather than replace it.

What Does It Cost to Install a Washing Machine?

As with any appliance installation, washing machine installation costs are fairly straightforward. In situations where the machine simply needs to be delivered, set-up, and connected, a price in the low hundreds is common. If, however, there is work needed to prepare the space (be it moving lines or doing some retrofitting) the cost may rise.
