Washing machines are the workhorses of the laundry room, battling dirty clothes and linens. But even the most valiant warriors face occasional breakdowns. When your washer throws a tantrum, don't despair! Liberty Appliance Repair is here to help diagnose the problem and get your laundry routine back on track. Here are the ten most common washer repair problems to watch out for:

A Waterfall in the Laundry Room: Leaking Washing Machine

A puddle around your washing machine is a sure sign of trouble. There could be a faulty hose, a clogged drain line, or a damaged door seal.  A washing machine leak can not only damage your floor but also lead to mold growth. Don't wait! Call us to address the leak and prevent further issues.

The Sounds of Silence (Except for Your Groans): Washer Not Spinning

A washer that won't spin leaves you with a soggy mess. This could be caused by a faulty drain pump, a clogged drain line, or a problem with the drive belt.  Wet clothes can mildew and become damaged, so addressing a spinning issue promptly is important. Our technicians can diagnose the cause of the spinning stalemate and get your washer back to its proper spin cycle.

Not Filling Up to Speed: Washer Won't Fill with Water

If your washer seems to be on strike, refusing to fill with water, there could be several culprits. A faulty inlet valve, a clogged water inlet hose, or a problem with the water pressure could all be to blame. A washer that doesn't fill with water can't clean your clothes!

Stuck in a Cycle (and Not a Fun One): Washer Won't Agitate

A washer that won't agitate is like a boxer stuck in the ropes – unable to deliver the cleaning punch. This could be due to a faulty agitator motor, a broken drive belt, or a problem with the control board. Clothes that don't get properly agitated won't come clean. We can identify the source of the agitation frustration and get your washer back to its churning ways.

The Mystery of the Missing Suds: Washer Not Dispensing Detergent

If your clothes are emerging from the wash cycle looking less than sparkling, it could be because the washer isn't dispensing detergent properly. A clogged dispenser drawer, a faulty inlet hose, or a problem with the water pressure could all be at play. Without proper detergent, your clothes won't get clean!

Roaring Twenties...Washing Machine Edition: Excessive Noise

While some washing machine noise is normal, loud banging, grinding, or clunking are not. These could indicate a loose component, a worn-out bearing, or a problem with the motor.  Ignoring strange noises can lead to more serious (and expensive) repairs down the road. If your washer sounds like it's hosting a heavy metal concert, contact Liberty Appliance Repair for a professional diagnosis.

The Unbalanced Act: Washer Vibrates Excessively

A washing machine that shakes and rattles during the spin cycle can be a real pain. This could be caused by an uneven load, worn-out shock absorbers, or a loose belt. Excessive vibration can damage your washer and even surrounding laundry room items. 

Burning Rubber (Not the Good Kind): Washer Smells Like Burning

A burning smell coming from your washer is a serious red flag and a cause for immediate concern. This could indicate a faulty motor, a burning belt, or even electrical problems. Don't ignore this warning sign! Shut off your washer and call Liberty Appliance Repair right away to avoid potential fire hazards.

Error on the Screen: Washer Error Codes

Modern washing machines often communicate through error codes displayed on the screen. While the specific codes will vary depending on the brand and model, they can provide valuable clues about the problem. Consult your washer's manual to decipher the error code, but don't hesitate to call usfor expert troubleshooting assistance.

No Power, No Wash: Washer Won't Turn On

A completely unresponsive washer is a laundry day nightmare. There could be a problem with the power source, a faulty control board, or a blown fuse. With a non-functioning washer, your laundry piles up fast! Our technicians can diagnose the electrical issue and get your washer back to powering through your laundry woes.
