Certain services and repairs can extend the life of your refrigerator, washing machine and dryer, as well as that of other major appliances. Learn what they are and then find professional technicians using DexKnows appliance services and repairs listings.
If your washing machine hums but does not drain or simply refuses to agitate, a washing machine repair technician proves the better bet over investigating yourself. A professional can easily get to the source of the problem, perform the appropriate repairs and even prevent future problems. For example, a lack of agitation could be the result of a worn or damaged belt that requires replacement. If not done properly, a bad belt replacement can result in a seized pulley and even higher washing machine repair costs.
A refrigerator that constantly runs but doesn’t’t maintain the set temperature, or one that leaks, requires the expertise of a refrigerator repair technician. Your appliance may need new door gaskets or the drain tube flushed. Regular cleaning of the condenser coils also will help extend the life of your refrigerator and help the appliance run at optimal efficiency, which can reduce your electric bill. Don’t hesitate to call a refrigerator repair technician because replacing the fridge would cost more than repairing the appliance.
A dryer that doesn’t’t turn on may need a new door switch, thermal fuse or thermostat, all of which an appliance repair technician can replace in no time. Or the dryer may need a new heating element or burner, depending on whether you have an electric or gas dryer. During your dryer repair appointment, also have the technician clean your dryer vent and exhaust duct, as well as tell you if the parts require replacement. Clogged lint traps, vents and unsafe venting materials can result in your dryer catching fire, according to the National Fire Protection Association.
