The Art of Appliance Service: An Appliance Blog

Welcome to my blog. When it comes to taking care of appliances, it can be an art. You have to use them correctly, know how to look for signs of trouble and understand how to do simple repairs. Hi, my name is Kelsey, and in this blog, I am going to write everything I know about appliances and related topics. This is my first blog, but I have written in many other types of venues before -- I'm even old enough to have had a 'zine (if you can believe that). I live with my husband, my three daughters, and our dog. Cleaning pet hair of of the dryer and repairing blades on the blender has become my specialty over the years. Enjoy reading!

How To Know If Your Washing Machine Needs In-Home Appliance Repair

Leevi Saari

Having a quality, working washing machine in your house is probably fairly important to you, as it can be difficult to always have to take your stuff down to the laundromat and then sit there for a couple of hours washing, drying, and folding. If you want to avoid having to do that, you will want to make sure that you are aware of any problems that your washing machine might be experiencing. Knowing the signs to look for will help you to know when it is time to call for in-home appliance repair services. Here are some things to keep an eye out for:

Violent Shaking Of The Machine

Even a good working washing machine can shake violently during the spin cycle if the clothes or towels in there were loaded in an uneven manner. After you first notice the loud banging of the machine or notice that it was shaking so hard that it moved itself a few inches out of place, you will want to be extra careful when you put in the next load. You could even try to run the washer with nothing in it to see if the machine still violently shakes during the spin cycle. If it does, then you need to call for in-home appliance repair services.

The Clothes Remain Soaking Wet

When the washing machine has completed all of its cycles and it is time for you to remove the clothes and put them in the dryer, you should not notice excessive water still in the machine. Your clothes should not be soaking wet. If they are dripping with water or if you can ring water out of them, the washing machine is not doing its job during the spin cycle. If you put soaking wet clothes in the dryer, it will take a lot longer for the dryer to dry them, which causes the dryer to have to work extra hard, and that can shorten its lifespan. If you begin to notice this type of problem, call an appliance repair technician so they can get your washer back in working order.

Whether you are noticing one of the previously mentioned signs of washing machine trouble, or something completely different but still concerning, you will want to call for appliance repair services. Try not to use your washing machine any more until the technician arrives to fix it because you do not want to make the problem get any worse than it already is.
