We Fix Common Washing Machine Problems

Washing machines are complex appliances with many moving parts, making repairs a common need.

1. Washing Machine Won't Turn On?

Often, a machine that won't turn on is caused by an off-balance switch due to unevenly distributed clothes. Simply redistributing the load can solve the problem. If not, there may be an issue with the timer/control board or outlet, which our experts in Richmond can handle.

2. Washing Machine Not Spinning or Agitating Properly?

If your clothes are still soaked at the end of a cycle, it may be due to a faulty lid switch, damaged wires, a broken drive belt, or a malfunctioning timer/control board. Something as simple as a door repair can fix a lid switch problem that prevents agitation.

3. Excessive Vibration?

Excessive vibration may occur if your washer is not properly leveled or if it's on a weak wood floor. Worn dampers could also be to blame. If the drum moves too much compared to the exterior, trust our experts for washing machine repair.

4. Leaks?

Leaking can be caused by excess soap, loose hoses, clogged drain hoses, or damaged pumps, tubs, or fill hoses. To prevent further damage, contact us promptly.

5. Clothes Not Clean After Wash?

If you're finding spots or excess soap on your laundry, it could be a sign that your water valve needs replacing or that a professional should repair or replace a defective timer, control board, or detergent dispenser. Unusual noises or vibrations may indicate the need for internal component repairs or replacements.

6. Washing Machine Not Draining?

If water remains in the basket after a cycle, it could be due to a faulty pump, worn drive belt, or clogged drain hose. Proper draining is essential to prevent mold and mildew. Let our service professionals in Richmond take care of your washer's drain system.
