Frequently Asked Question
Q. What should I do if the door on my washer won't open?
A. If the washer door fails to open at the end of the cycle, it's usually due to a faulty lock system. Many washers have a manual release which is accessible from under the door lock. Try opening the door this way before calling a technician.
Q. What's making my washer squeak?
A. The source of this sound is usually the pump belt. Due to regular wear and tear, the belt gets worn down and it can become frayed or even cracked. During the wash cycle, you may hear a thumping or squealing noise but this, fortunately, is an easy fix for a professional technician.
Q. Which is better, powder or liquid detergent?
A. With so many different types of detergent out there, it's difficult to choose. Deciding between liquid and powder is more about personal preference and your needs. Each type of detergent has its own pros and cons. For example, if your clothes are often the victims of oil splashes, you may want to opt for the powder variety.
Q. Why don't certain cycles work on my washer?
A. Your washer will have several wash cycle options. The problem is best diagnosed by establishing which cycle is giving you trouble. For instance, if your water heater is faulty, it can make the hot wash cycle problematic. The heater will need to be replaced before you can use this cycle again.
Q. What is causing my washer leak?
A. The door is the source of the most common washing machine leaks. It's usually because of a worn or damaged door seal. If the washer is leaking during a cycle, you might need to call a professional since there could be a leak inside the appliance itself. It's also worth checking all of your hoses while you're at it.
Q. How to stop my washer from moving around?
A. This is a common problem that can result in significant damage to the appliance. The first thing to remember is to make sure that the floor on which your washer is placed is level. Next, you will need to adjust the legs of the washer to make sure that it too is level. You can also use some special pads under the legs to help absorb the vibrations and give the legs more grip to reduce movement.
Q. What if my washer is not filling properly with water?
A. Filters can become clogged over time and this is one of the main issues behind failure to fill. You can clean the filters first and see if this fixes the problem. If not, call your local washer repair technician for professional assistance.
Q. Why does my washer have a bad smell?
A. The number one cause of bad washer smells is the growth of bacteria or mold inside the appliance. You may not see it but those spores are multiplying behind the scenes. Add some vinegar and baking soda to your washer and run a wash cycle. This will help clean out the cause of the smell. To prevent your washer from stinking, you should use minimal fabric softener and run regular cleaning cycles with vinegar and baking soda.
Q. Why is my washer not draining?
A. A clogged drain pump is the top cause of this problem. The hose could also be clogged so it's worth checking while you're at it. Remove the hoses and unclog them first. If this does not resolve the problem, call a technician.
Q. Why is my washer not spinning?
A. This is usually due to a broken belt, motor issue, or a problem with the lid switch. It's best to have an appliance repair expert perform the diagnosis and repairs.
Q. Who will repair my washer?
A. At Capital Appliance Repair, our team of technicians is both qualified and experienced. When you choose us, you can rest assured that your washer is in the very best hands.
Q. How long will it take to fix my washer?
A. By offering prompt service, we are able to diagnose the problem quickly. Before we do, however, we like to get as much information possible over the phone. This allows us to stock our van with all the parts and tools needed to repair your washer on the spot. Our goal is not only to determine the cause of the problem, but also complete repairs during our first visit. We understand just how important your washer is, which is why we never delay!
Q. How can I help speed up repairs on my washer?
A. The first thing you should do is resist the urge to take your washer apart and find the source of the problem yourself. Removing parts can make it more difficult and time consuming for a technician to figure out the reason behind the fault. The best thing you can do is make sure that your washer is not obstructed by anything and, if possible, remove any laundry.
Q. Are your washer repairs guaranteed?
A. Yes, all our washing machine repairs are backed by our guarantee so that you can rest easy! Call (613) 454-1577 for fast and reliable washer repairs.
Q. What to do if a load of laundry remains stuck inside my washing machine?
A. If you have laundry in your washer and you are not able to open the door, it's best to leave the laundry right where it is. Do not try to force the door open because you could end up doing more harm than good. Our technicians are fully prepared to assist in this regard. Keep a laundry basket handy so that you can remove your laundry as soon as we open the door.
