washing machine not working

What to do when your washing machine stops working

A washing machine is a household investment for every family. We depend on a washer to clean our clothes and linen by washing and removing stains, grease, dirt, and germs from our laundry through the use of an agitator, the combination of using hot or cold water and detergent.

In combination with a dryer(link to dryer page), a household washing machine saves us time and money from taking our laundry to a laundromat or dry cleaning.

If your washer does not work, you’re left a few options to wash your clothes. One option is to wash your laundry the old fashion way through the use of lukewarm water, wash tubs, and detergent. Another option is to take your laundry to a laundromat or the dry cleaners.

Lastly, the best option is to schedule an appointment for a washing machine repair service from a professional and trustworthy company when your appliance malfunctions or stops working.

When should you repair or replace your washing machine

When you come to a point on deciding whether it’s worth repairing or replacing your washing machine, the first thing you should do is check to see if your warranty or extended warranty is still in effect. If it is, you should contact an appliance repair company to see if they will honor the warranty.

If your warranty is over, then it’s time to consider if you need to replace your washing machine. The most obvious answer would be if the cost to repair is half the price of purchasing a new unit.

Some other factors to consider are the age of your washer (if it’s 8 years old, consider replacing) and if it’s a top loader washing machine because top-loading washers are more expensive to repair than front-loading machines.

extend washing machine life with maintenance

Extend the life of your current washing machine

If replacing your washing machine is not an option right now for your household, consider maintaining your washer. These maintenance tips can help prevent future problems and lower your utility bills and help you save money towards purchasing a new one.

Below are some helpful tips to maintain your washer in Southern California:

1. Inspect the hoses that are connected to your washer and look for any signs of damage or fault.
2. Clean the inside of your machine once a month to maintain its energy efficiency.
3. Use the right detergent and appropriate amount needed for your wash load.
4. Don’t let your wet clothes or linen linger too long in the washer because it can cause mildew and mold.
5. Check your laundry for sharp objects that may damage your washer or stain your wash loads; such as pens, coins, and keys.
6. Additional ways you can maintain your washing efficiency.

I would like to recommend this company for all your appliance and ac/heater repair needs. These guys have always been able to help and fix everything in a timely manner. Do not be deceived by negative reviews, it is because they work with insurance companies and there’s certain protocol that needs to be followed when processing insurance claims which takes time and it is not their fault. These guys fixed my ac and my dishwasher with no problems and i always recommend them to my family and friends. Michael has always been extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
