Better Laundry Appliance Repairs – Toronto’s Award-Winning Choice
Our job is and has always been, to help Toronto with laundry appliance repairs. And at this stage, not only have we gotten to know this city very well, but we also have a good grasp of the types of calls we get. There are the occasional weird ones, but those are few and far between. And in the spirit of helping you out, we’ve listed some of the more common calls we get, and whether or not you need a certified technician to help you with your concern.
My dryer/washer isn’t drying/washing
Fairly common. Probably top of the list. This starts with a phone call to our helpful technicians who can help diagnose the issue on the spot. By asking leading questions and doing a few simple checks, we can help you determine whether this is a job for the best repair team in town, or whether a trip to Home Depot can solve all your woes for much cheaper.
I have leaks around my washer
Ok, this is also pretty common, and the puddle size and location matter immensely. If you have leaks in the front, that could be as simple as changing your detergent. If the leaks are underneath, that could be more worrying. Once again, a phone call to our knowledgeable team will help you out here.
Do I need someone to help me install my appliances?
While some brands of laundry appliances are simple to plug in and hook up, others require gas lines, electrical wiring, tubing and ducting hookups. Also, some washers have concrete bottoms, some units are stackable, and some require calibration when installed. Did you know that we can help install your appliances as well? Contact us to set up an appointment. We’ll show up when we say we will, and we’ll make sure everything is working perfectly before we go.
Can you help pick my lotto numbers?
Ordinarily, we’d say no. But I have a feeling about the numbers 24 and 11. Something about them feels right.
Brands of Laundry Appliances We Repair
When you do call, you’re not going to shock us with your brand. Our tech team has worked with dozens of brands you know and some you probably haven’t. We know all the types and models of laundry appliances from stackable units to front-loader and top-loader washers, gas dryers, electric dryers, spin dryers, big units, small units, and every style you could think of. Here is a list of some of the brands we have experience with.
- And many many more…
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.
Washing Machine Repairs and 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 and 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.
Laundry Appliance FAQs
Does it matter if I have different brand dryers and washers?
Although the company that sold it to you would say different, no it does not matter at all. Your wet clothes got wet in a Maytag/Samsung/Whirlpool washer, do you think they care that they are being dried in a Haier/LG/GE dryer? Nope. But don’t tell those companies that we said that.
Can I fix my laundry appliances myself?
You can and you should. It’s weird for that advice to come from a repair technician, but you can certainly do many simple repairs right at home. In fact, check out our articles linked above to learn what you can and should do to care for your own laundry appliances.
Would it be worth it to get new appliances?
Although your 15-year-old laundry appliances are still held together with duct tape (Red Green would be proud), it might be worth it to get a new appliance. Newer models can have a better safety rating, use less energy, and more efficiently clean/dry your clothes. And if you need any installations, we are just a phone call away.
What about your repairs? How do I know it will last?
Good question. You should ask that of any repair service before you make a booking. Our repairs come with a warranty and guarantee that is unheard of in this industry. If we don’t fix it right the first time, we’ll come back and do it again for free. We certify all our parts and labour with 12 months of protection. If that same issue occurs up to a year from our initial repair, we’ll come back and do it for free. How’s that for a trusted repair service?
