Washer and Dryer Repair Lynchburg Virginia

One of the major areas of change in the appliance industry recently is how washers and dryers have changed for the better. Many years of constant change led us to what we have today. High efficiency washers and dryers that perform better every year.



Washer Repair

That’s wonderful news for consumers spending upwards of $1500 for a top-of-the-line front load washer expecting to get their money’s worth. Fortunately, it’s money well spent because they impress with their operation and efficiency.

As with any appliance that works tirelessly day after day, they will fail at some point, but major repairs are the exception and not the rule. That’s why it’s also good news to have Lynchburg Appliance at the ready to stop over and repair your washer.

Washing machine repair no longer involves large, heavy tools to repair your machine unless a complete teardown for a tub job becomes necessary. Today’s machines require finesse and a good working knowledge of every part and function of the washer.

That comes from thorough training and experience in the operation of these advanced machines. They’re highly advanced and full of the latest technology designed for speed, efficiency, and performance. Fortunately, you can expect all three from your machine.

We find the most common issue with front load washers is the natural tendency to overload them. Excessive weight prematurely wears out the rear tub bearing and causes avoidable downtime and expense.

Always keep load sizes small enough to see about eight inches above the load as it sits inside the basket, before the cycle starts. Doing that will ensure proper weight distribution for maximum efficiency and smoother operation cycle after cycle.

Much of the same advice goes for top load washers, too. The difference is try to keep the load size to approximately one-half of the basket to keep the weight within limits and to make your expensive washer last as long as possible.


Dryer Repair

Many of the same rules for all dryers apply to the latest models, too. Repairing a dryer usually involves replacing a defective heating element for an electric unit or an igniter for gas. They have occasional issues with broken belts and noises, but the most common is airflow.

All dryers have a 4 inch diameter exhaust tube in the rear or side that routes hot, moist air to the outside. The key is keep the vent leading to outdoors clear at all times. Doing so will ensure your dryer works at peak efficiency and should dry an average load of towels sooner than you might expect.

This assumes your washer does its job of spinning the water out of the clothes before putting them in the dryer. Keep in mind that any time you question the operation of your washer or dryer, the pros at Lynchburg Appliance have fully stocked vans and professional technicians trained on your machine to quickly and safely repair or maintain your appliance and bring it back up to manufacturer specifications.
