Symptoms of a Broken Washer and Dryer
- Washer Does Not Fill
Make sure that the door is closed, that the inlet pipes are not clogged and that the water supply is properly connected. If all of these things are in good working order and you are still facing issues with the washer not filling up, then you should contact an expert for help.
- Dryer Vent Clogged
One of the primary causes of a broken dryer is a clogged vent. If the air cannot find an exit, then clothes will remain damp. An increase in noise may also be an indication that the vent is clogged.
To avoid any damages to the apparatus through this issue, clean out the lint filter before every laundry load. As a bonus, the ventilation system should also be cleaned once a year.
If the problem is more severe than just a simple cleaning, call a dryer specialist for a professional cleaning.
- Washer Won’t Drain
On the opposite side of the spectrum, sometimes the washer fills a little too well. If the washer does not drain, then that is indicative of clogging in the filter or something not working in the pump. A qualified professional will be able to properly pinpoint the issue and then offer a working solution.
- Dryer Not Heating
If the dryer is not heating, check to see if the settings have been tampered with. You may not know this, but some dryers have a function where they only release air but do not heat the machine. If the settings are in order and the dryer is still not heating, then the ignition may be to blame.
Without the right tools, the ignition may be harder to repair because it is difficult to access in the first place. A professional will be able to help you, in this case.
- Mid-Cycle Stop
This is usually due to a malfunctioning thermostat, heater or timer. If the problem lies specifically with the timer, then you might be able to buy yourself some time by adjusting the dial manually. However, this is not a long term solution and should be looked at by a professional as soon as possible.
