Signs You Need to Repair Your Washing Machine

Some washing machine issues are easy to detect, such as the machine not turning on at all. However, some problems are trickier to identify and take some strong observational skills. For example, if your washing machine leaks, you might not be able to see where the water is collecting. However, if you notice your water bill has increased more than usual, this usually indicates you have a leak in one of your water-related appliances.

Other signs your washer needs repair:

  • The washer isn’t draining correctly.
  • The washer isn’t filling correctly.
  • The washer smells terrible.
  • The wash cycle won’t finish.
  • The washer shakes or moves more than usual.
  • The washer is making a different, or louder, noise.
  • The washer won’t spin.
  • The washer doesn’t dispense detergent or fabric softener.

If you notice your washer has issues, call our washing machine repair technicians in Hackensack. Mr. Appliance of Hackensack can diagnose and repair any problem your washing machine might have. We can even diagnose whether it would be more cost-effective to repair or replace your machine.

Repairing vs. Replacing Your Washing Machine

In some cases, it might be better to replace your washing machine rather than repairingMr. Appliance technician repairing a washing machine it. Determining which course of action to take means weighing the costs of both options. You need to consider the following:

  • Age of your washing machine
  • Cost of repair
  • Cost of replacement

The age of your washing machine is the most essential factor to consider since the life expectancy of a washing machine is around ten years. You also need to take into account how often you use the washer and how many other people use it, and the life expectancy decreases from there (unless you have your machine routinely maintained).

The cost of repairing the machine increases with the complexity of the repair. If the washer is old, it might be harder to locate a replacement part, which will increase your cost of repair. If buying a new machine outright costs less than repairing your washing machine, it might be time to spring for a new model.

How Much Does It Cost to Repair a Washing Machine?

On average, you can expect to pay between $51 to $400 to repair your washing machine. However, the costs can increase from there, depending on how hard it will be to find a replacement part and whether or not your repair company charges by the hour or using a flat-rate fee.

However, the machine warranty might also cover your costs. If your washing machine repair is covered by a home service warranty or by the warranty of the manufacturer, the majority of the repair expenses will be covered by one of those two companies.

Washing Machines | Common Misconceptions

Using More Detergent Will Get my Laundry Cleaner

This is false! Using more detergent will actually ruin your clothes and could damage your washer's draining pump and block your washer's draining system.

We know how tempting it is, however, to use extra detergent for those extremely dirty loads. Rest assured knowing you don't need extra detergent. Simply use the amount your detergent brand recommends - your clothes will get clean and your washer will thank you for it.

Since My Washer is Always Cleaning Clothes it Doesn't Need to be Cleaned

This is also false. True, your washer constantly has soapy water running through it but bacteria can still spread and grow in your washer and odors can develop. You should clean your washer once a month by:

  • Running an empty load with two cups of baking soda on the hottest, longest setting possible.
  • Running a second empty load with two cups of white vinegar on the hottest, longest setting possible.

Oh, and keep your washer door open after each load to let it dry out. This will allow your washer to air dry and help prevent mildew growth.
