What to Do When a Washer or Dryer Suddenly Stops Working

Of all appliances to experience a sudden breakdown, your washer or dryer can be one of the most inconvenient and frustrating. Not only is one unit practically useless without the other being in good working condition, but all of the sudden you find yourself unable to wash or dry your clothing! This could be trouble if you have a laundry hamper piling up with clothes – probably including the outfit you planned to wear to work or school the next day. Here are a couple of quick things to check on your washer and dryer before you call a Los Angeles appliance repair and maintenance company.

Check All Connections and Hookups

It’s always nice when the most inconvenient problems have simple solutions. Over time it isn’t uncommon for a washer or dryer to shift slightly, and with enough constant movement, hoses can get unhooked. Take a look behind your units and make sure everything is properly attached – and, of course, if the washer and dryer are both plugged in. It sounds painfully easy, but these issues aren’t uncommon by any means.

Try to Determine the Location of the Problem

This shouldn’t be too difficult, even if you’re dealing with a new and advanced washer and dryer set. Hi-Tech Appliance Repair can often be a pain, but not when it comes to washer and dryers. Try to determine the exact cause of the problem. If the washer is malfunctioning, find out what’s going wrong – see if the water isn’t coming out, if it isn’t spinning, and so on. With a dryer, check to see if it’s a spinning issue or a heating issue. This will bring you one step closer to knowing what’s going on.

Ultimately, you may discover that you’ll need to call a Los Angeles appliance repair and maintenance company, but checking for simple solutions beforehand might save you a fair amount of time and money. The most important thing is to have your appliances in good working order so that you can use them – if you can repair your appliances yourself, all the better.
