In general, the easiest way to repair an appliance is a power reboot. To do this, unplug your device from the power source, wait around one minute, then plug it back in. If this doesn’t solve the issue, and you’ve tried the above tips, your appliance likely has an internal problem, such as a broken part.
What Are Some Common Appliance Repairs & How Do I Fix Them?
While our team is always on standby, ready to assist you with any professional appliance repairs needed, we are even happier to find you various ways to save you some extra cash. In fact, there are a few common appliance issues that can usually be solved on your own, without needing to call us out.
If you’re dealing with a washing machine that won’t work, either having trouble turning on, draining water, or getting a desired clean, a simple fix might be all that’s needed.
First thing’s first, we always recommend a power cycle, as stated above. If it’s an issue not involving power, check the front load or top load switch. Sometimes, these get stuck and require a simple jiggle to get things going again.
A ballpoint pen will even work to free the debris that is not allowing the button to work correctly. If you’re washing machine isn’t draining properly, be sure to check the drain pump, there may be a piece of fabric or some other type of debris blocking access.
Lastly, if your machine has trouble cleaning, be sure to double-check the manufacturer’s guide regarding cleaning procedures. From not using enough detergent to overloading the washer, any of these can cause a less than desirable clean.
If you’re dealing with a fridge light that is refusing to click on, one of the most common issues we receive calls about, it can usually be fixed by cleaning the switch with warm water and jiggling it unstuck. On the other hand, if you’re fridge has gotten increasingly noisy, simply releveling it or placing it on a soundproof mat are both easy fixes.
When it comes to more severe issues, such as a leak or faulty door seal, they are usually related. You can generally find relief by cleaning the door gasket with warm soapy water or an easy DIY replacement. If the leaking continues after the door is repaired, there may be a drainage issue.
You can solve a drainage issue by flushing it with a mix of baking soda and warm water, which should remove any debris and allow your fridge to drain accordingly.

Nothing is worse than a dishwasher giving you issues. If your dishwasher’s door is leaking, the fix is often simply clearing obstructions preventing the door from not close. Simply, it’s essential to ensure you are not overpacking your dishwasher. Overpacking can cause quite a few problems. If the door continues to leak even after cycling with smaller a smaller load of dishes, try cleaning the door gasket with warm soapy water.
A good cleaning should free any debris or soap scum preventing the door from having a proper seal. Other than that, you may be dealing with a worn or broken seal, which needs to be replaced. One of the most common issues dishwashers face is pooling with water due to a clog in the drain filter. Clogs are a simple fix, as the filter is located at the bottom of the dishwasher.
You can clean the filter by hand. If this isn’t enough, we advise you to soak the filter in a vinegar solution to completely clear it of leftover food particles.
