Washing machines and dryers are some of the most important and noteworthy appliances in a household. Without these incredible appliances, we’d still be washing and drying our clothes by hand. They are a lifesaver and most certainly a time saver.
Because they are used so frequently, washing machines are often breaking down and having faults. We advise heavily against DIY repairs on washing machines because they are connected to a water line and an electricity supply simultaneously, mixing those two things is pretty dangerous and it’s best to leave it down to the pros.
When these appliances inevitably break down, it can cause a lot of frustration and end up with laundry building up in your home, causing further frustration afterward. To avoid frustration, it’s best to call Peter’s Appliance Repair, your number one pick for appliance experts. Our fantastic team is always on hand to provide professional and certified advice, in order to get your appliance back up and running as fast as possible. We guarantee satisfaction every time.

The common issues and troubleshooting them
Loud noise from washer/dryer

The appliance won’t turn on at all
There are three things to check if your appliance isn’t turning on, the breaker in your home and the fuse in the plug, along with power actually being provided to the outlet. If you’ve already done all of these checks, call Peter’s Appliance Repair and schedule your inspection today.
My dryer isn’t heating up
A dryer needs heat production to dry your clothes, without it, you’ll just end up with wet, creased clothes. If your dryer isn’t hot enough when running, it could mean that the filter is blocked with lint caused by clothes in past cycles. You can simply vacuum the filter to fix troubleshoot this issue.
Should I consider a replacement?
For a dryer, the lifespan on average is 13 years. With the washing machine being around 11 years.
