Washing machines have become a modern convenience and are often found in many homes and apartment buildings. There are two types of washers: top-loading and front-loading. Control panels on top-loading machines are typically less complicated, but front-loading machines can hold bigger laundry loads. Many contemporary washing machines include features like child locks, steam functions, rotation speed settings, and time remaining indicators. Though this home appliance is a life-saver for many households, they can run into problems. Common issues with washers are loud noises, leaking, shaking, and the washer not starting. Fortunately, Fast Appliance Repair is well equipped to handle all washer repairs. We offer fast and friendly repair services and can often do same-day consultations.










    Common Washer Problems

    Drain Hose: The drain hose removes the dirty water from the washer and distributes it into the home’s drain system. It typically connects to the back of the machine. When a drain hose is cracked, it can cause dirty water to leak onto the floor.

    Motor Coupler: The motor coupler is the connecting piece between the motor and transmission. The motor coupler can fail if the washer is overloaded. It can also need replacement over time if the washer is used regularly. A washer that won’t spin may be a result of a broken motor coupler.

    Door Latch: The door latch keeps the washer’s door secured to the machine. If a washer is not properly latched, it will not operate. A malfunctioning door latch may cause the washing machine to stall.

    Water Pump: The water pump is what keeps water circulating throughout the washer during the wash cycle. It also drains the water from the machine during the spin cycle. A broken water pump may cause leaks, drainage issues, or clothes that are still too wet after the spin cycle.
