The washer in your home is one of the most valuable players on the appliance playing field. It’s also a lifesaver for busy people. That’s why, when something goes wrong, it’s easy to panic. But relax, because if you need washing machine repairs, and you’re in Elk Grove, you’ve got a secret weapon.
All it takes to deal with your washer woes is to give Mark’s Appliance Repair a call. That, and a few little tricks we’ll teach you will keep it running efficiently for many years to come.
Maintenance You Can’t Ignore
Regular maintenance is the key to keeping any electrical appliance in good working order. You can handle the tips below pretty easily. Also, it might be worthwhile to have us in once a year, or at least every second year to perform some basic maintenance.
You should do the following yourself:
- Unclog the drain filter: We recommend doing so every two to four weeks.
- Remove the lint: Most machines have an alert that shows when it’s time to remove the lint from the filter. We don’t recommend waiting that long, though. Get into the habit of cleaning it out once a week.
- Clean your machine: All that water, detergent, and grime will have an effect on your machine over time. This can cause a smelly interior. It’s easy to fix, though – just run a hot cycle without any load in the tub.
When Should You Call Us?
There’s No Power
First and foremost, check to make sure that the plug is in and that there are no breaks in the cord. Try using a different electrical outlet as well. If that doesn’t work, then call us.
It’s Not Draining as It Should
Here you’ll want to check the drain outlet for clogging. If you can’t find anything, then it’s time to call us in.
It’s Not Spinning
You’ll want to start by making sure that you’ve got it at the right setting. A heavy soil cycle, for example, will normally allow the clothes to soak for a while. If it’s on the right setting, check how much laundry you’ve put in. If the machine is overloaded, it won’t work.
There’s a Puddle of Water on the Floor
There could be any number of issues here. If no drains are clogged, it means that some part has worn out or isn’t doing what it should.
Your Machine is Bouncing Around
If it’s a brand-new machine, you’ll want to see if:
- The stabilizer bars have been removed – these are to keep things in place during transport but should be removed when the machine’s in place
- The floor is level
- The feet are evenly placed
If it’s an older machine that has suddenly started acting up, check if the load inside is balanced. If it is, then call us in.
It’s Making a Weird Sound
Any sound out of the ordinary could indicate that you need a repair. The one exception is when you’ve tossed your sneakers in for a wash.
It Doesn’t Go Through the Entire Cycle
This might be a simple fix, like a worn-out timer. It could also be a wide range of other issues. In any case, you’ll want to get it checked out by a professional.
