Clothes Dryer with clothes hanging outClothes dryers work pretty simply, so there are only a few reasons why they don’t work right.

The Right Detergent for Your Washing Machine

December 13th, 2018

laundry detergent on grocery shelfIf you would like to get the most from your washing machine and keep it in great shape for years to come, you need to follow the right steps and have some tips in mind. Not using the right washing machine detergent can cost you money on your energy bill or even result in costly washing machine repair fees. This guide reviews the types of detergents from which you can choose and points you toward the correct path.

High-Efficiency Detergents

High-efficiency washing machines use less water than standard washing machines and require high-efficiency detergents. Standard laundry detergents produce a lot of bubbles and foam that require plenty of water to wash away. If you have a high-efficiency washing machine and use standard detergents, you won’t get enough water to clear the foam. The foam can even overflow and damage your washer if you are not careful, and you will then need to hire a washing machine repair team. Read the rest of this entry »

Mechanical Part Repair and Replacement for Your Dishwasher

November 16th, 2018

hot water connection on a dishwasherIf your dishwasher is still under warranty or is less than 10 years old, it’s better to have it repaired rather than replaced. We also recommend extending the life of your dishwasher through professional maintenance and repair services. Even if your broken dishwasher is an older model, we can still repair it with quality parts and servicing so that it operates like new again. You’ll be pleased to know that these repairs usually cost much less than starting over again with a new dishwasher.

Cost-Effective Part Repair and Replacement

Angie’s List is one of the most trusted consumer review websites in the home improvement and trade service industries. The experts at the site recommend getting a professional to examine your disabled dishwasher to determine if your appliance’s problem is a simple fix that requires inexpensive parts or one that is more complicated. We frequently see older dishwashers that have worn seals and gaskets that we can fix quickly and inexpensively. We also specialize in dishwasher repair services and replacement of parts such as switches, drain pumps, valves, door latches and rack wheels. Today’s new dishwashers range in price from about $250 to up to $2,000.  Budget dishwashers are serviceable, but they often come with cheaper, less durable parts and shorter warranties. They are also sure to have fewer bells and whistles than mid-range and high-end dishwashers. By repairing your old dishwasher (add repair cost link), you give yourself time to save for the appliance that you really want without compromising convenience or performance now.

What are the Main Causes of an Unbalanced Washing Machine Load?

August 3rd, 2018

Top-loading washerAll appliances, especially washers and dryers, require regular maintenance to keep the machines working their best over the lives of the units. However, home appliances do break down from time to time, and the thoroughness of preventative maintenance plays a significant role in the longevity of these wonders of electromechanical technology.

A clothes washer is the most “mechanical” of all the appliances in the home. That said, they also perform an essential function in the normal flow of things to keep the home operating smoothly. From a homeowner’s perspective, going without a washer for only a day typically upsets the daily routine of washing clothes, and going to a laundromat is out of the question.

Let’s go over in detail about a problem that plagues every homeowner at one time or another. That problem is not knowing what to do when the washing machine goes off balance. There are several reasons behind the causes of that familiar loud and disturbing banging sound when the washer begins its spin cycle. The most common causes are listed below: Read the rest of this entry »
