Washing Machine Repair in Memphis
Appliance Repair Services Near You
There’s nothing quite like having a washing machine indoors. If you’ve ever transitioned from hauling a load of laundry across a city to the local laundry mat to just walking a basket of clothes down the stairs, it can feel like one of life’s highest luxuries. This is why when your washing machine breaks, it can be both inconvenient and very frustrating.
A washing machine contains a lot of moving parts, and almost all those parts are inside the machine, making it hard to diagnose exactly what’s wrong with it. That’s where our Memphis home appliance repair professionals come in. Mr. Appliance of Memphis has the industry knowledge and experience it takes to diagnose and fix whatever might be wrong with your washing machine, getting it back up and running or helping you choose a new one.

Signs Your Washing Machine Needs Repair
The most obvious sign that your washing machine needs repairs is if it doesn’t turn on at all, even when it’s plugged in. However, there may be other, more subtle signs that you need to get your machine fixed soon, if not immediately:
- Water isn’t filling the drum: You can always tell when your washing machine is starting by the telltale sound of water pouring into the drum. If that sound is missing, open the washer to take a peek at what’s happening inside. If your clothes are still dry, your washing machine definitely needs a repair professional.
- The drum isn’t turning: The entire point of a washing machine is it soaks your clothes and agitates them in soapy water for you. If your clothes are just sitting in the water, that isn’t doing anything to remove dirt or stains. If you notice this happening, it could be a problem with the belt or the lid switch.
- The washer is making unusual sounds: Washing machines can be loud, especially older models. However, once you’ve had your machine for a while, you know what a normal load of clothes sounds like. Any unusual noises, such as shrieks, loud thumping, or groaning noises could all indicate a misalignment that needs to be investigated. If a part is out of alignment, it could cause stress on the rest of your machine, which will shorten its lifespan.
- Water isn’t draining from the drum: Once the clothes are washed, the last spin cycle usually drains as much water as possible from your laundry so the items can be safely placed in the clothes dryer. However, if the water isn’t draining from your washing machine, your washer has a serious flaw. Check to see if clothes have tangled up and blocked the pump. If that’s not the issue, you could have a problem with your drain hose or water pump.

Repairing Versus Replacing Your Washing Machine
Washing machines don’t last very long when compared to other appliances. They get a ton of use throughout their lifetimes, particularly if they belong in an apartment complex or in a house with a large family. On average, new washing machines need to be replaced about every 11 years.
Whether or not you should buy a new one depends on several factors, including the age of the machine, your budget, and how expensive the repair will be compared to buying a new machine. Washing machines can cost anywhere from $250 to $2,050, depending on the size and features you want. Repairs can be just as expensive as an entirely new machine if the repairs needed are extensive and require parts that might no longer be manufactured.
Our Memphis washing machine repair team can help you make that decision by giving you a flat estimate of what your repair will cost. We don’t charge by the hour, so no matter how long it takes to repair your washing machine, our fixed price won’t change.
