Dryers and washing machines are appliances we use every single day. They are important to ensure our clothes are clean and ready to be worn, all in under a day. We often take these appliances for granted because most of the time, they just work.
Because of their daily use, a washing machine can be prone to issues and requiring repairs. However, before you jump to attempting a DIY repair on your washing machine, we must advise against it. These appliances are connected up to electricity and water at the same time, to tinker with these two things together is a disaster waiting to happen and is best left to a professional.

The common issues and troubleshooting them
Loud noise from washer/dryer
Although both appliances make noise alone when running through a cycle, if you begin to hear sounds you’re not familiar with such as knocking, clanging or crashing, it’s possible that there’s an issue on the way or already there. To prevent this from causing further damages, it’s important to get a professional out to your home to check it ASAP. Ryan’s Appliance Repair is your best choice for this.
Washing machine leaking
Leaks are a nightmare when it comes to appliance issues, they can damage the floors and walls in your home and even cause further damage to other appliances. For that reason, leaks should never be ignored, and it’s always best to get a professional to take a look. Usually, these issues come from the water hose which can be inspected by you for any damage or blockages. It’s possible a replacement could be needed, so call us ASAP.
The appliance won’t turn on
There are a few initial checks that you should do when your appliance won’t turn on. Ensure that the fuse in the plug has not blown, that power is running to the outlet and that your home’s breaker has not tripped. If you’ve already carried out these tests, give Ryan’s Appliance Repairs a call and schedule a professional inspection.
My dryer isn’t heating up
Without heat being provided, a dryer cannot operate as usual and you won’t get the warm, dry clothes we all love at the end of a cycle. Usually, the main culprit for this issue is the filter, which can become blocked, usually with lint from past washes. A simple vacuum of the filter can fix the issue.
Should I consider a replacement?
Both the washing machine and dryer are long-lasting appliances, lasting between 11 and 13 years on average.
However, if they aren’t cared for and maintained on a regular basis, these numbers mean nothing. Ryan’s Appliance Repair has been in the business for a long time and has a team of professionals who are on hand to provide the very best repairs and maintenance. The brand or model of your appliance doesn’t matter either, as the chances are we’re got an engineer who can deal with this. You’ll always be left satisfied with a service like ours.
