OUR LAUNDRY REPAIR SERVICES
Washing Machine Repairs & Installations
You don’t really think much about the installation of the washer in your home, and maybe that’s why we get people asking questions about it all the time. That’s fair. Ask away. We love the questions. But it’s not as simple as just plugging it in and turning it on.
Your washer comes with tubing and hoses to connect to the water source. You’ll need both inlet and outlets for the water, the hot and cold connected, and a working knowledge of the valves on each end. You know how you almost always plug in your USB upside down every time? And then swap it over and it still doesn’t work? Then back to what you had and it works fine? Think how easy it could be to mix up the hoses on your washer if a little memory stick can give us such trouble.
Also, some models require weighted bottoms, not always provided from the store you bought them. Also, to keep your machine from “walking” when you use it, you’ll need to adjust the feet to level the machine.
We’ve created a whole guide dedicated to washers. You can learn how to diagnose the issues, which parts you can replace on your own, and when to call the repair experts. Find out more about our washing machine repairs in Toronto by following this link.
Dryer Repairs & Installations
Your dryer doesn’t have as many hoses as the washer, but it still requires a proper installation. The dryer vent needs to be connected, without kinks, to the venting port of your home. It’s just a couple hose clamps and some adjusting, but it needs to be correct to keep your home safe from excessive hot air.
Also, let’s talk gas dryers. Man, those things can be complicated and we wouldn’t wish their installation on anyone. You need to ensure the seals are tight, that there are no gas leaks, and that your dryer is properly attached to the main supply.
Because we get so many questions related to dryers, we’ve written up a whole article on them. Follow this link to learn how to determine if your dryer needs repair, what you can do to prevent problems, and how to fix it yourself. Check it all out here.
CERTIFIED LAUNDRY APPLIANCE INSTALLATION
A lot of people we talk to have this mentality that they can do it all themselves. There is no doubt that not everybody needs a professional to install and repair their laundry appliances, but the proportion that does is certainly higher than one may think.
Maybe people think that it’s as simple as putting a toaster on the counter or plugging in their new phone. While some appliances are easy to understand, there are some things you need to know about your laundry appliances that might deter you from trying it yourself – because the last thing you want is to come home to a flooded house or a burned out home.
Take advantage of our installation service so that you can get everything set up efficiently and quickly the first time. Don’t void out your warranty getting it set up yourself. Save all that trouble of reading complicated manuals. Don’t get the tubing and water lines mixed up. Use the technicians in Toronto who know laundry appliances.
BEFORE CALLING THE EXPERTS, TRY THIS
Before you run out and call us or another appliance repair technician, there are some steps you can take to fix the issue yourself.
Water Issues? Check the Valves
For some reason (and to be fair, it’s often blamed on the kids), the water intake valves get switched off. And nobody realizes it until it’s too late. The water doesn’t enter the drum. The clothes don’t get washed. You spiral deeply into self-loathing and your life crumbles. Next time your washer acts up, check the valves.
Always Check the Lint Trap
We have a lot of calls come in for dryer repairs in Toronto. Most of the time, the problem is with the lint. So pull out your dryer, and you’ll see an exhaust hose running out the back of it. Never seen it before? That’s ok, and that’s also the cause of most of your problems.
Remove the hose clamp securing the hose to the dryer and pull it off. There’s every possibility that a giant ball of lint is clogging up either the hose itself or on the inside of the dryer vent. Not finding anything there? That’s alright. Check outside where the vent expels the air outside and you could even find the lint blockage there. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve saved someone a callout by explaining this one simple trick to them.
Leaky Washer? Check the Pipes
Turn on a load and watch the pipes. If there is a small leak, it’s an easy fix to simply replace the pipes from the washing machine. Of course, if you have any leaks out the front, the issue is more complex. If you have a front-loader, you could be using the wrong detergent. They have front-end specific soaps that don’t suds up as much as a top loader washer. This could be forcing water out the front and on the ground.
