Springtime Maintenance Tips for Your Washer & Dryer
As we mentioned in our last Blog Post, “Springtime Maintenance Tips for Your Refrigerator/ Freezer,” we are bringing our loyal customers & friends some additional tips for maintaining your appliances that are important to take care of in the spring. Here are some helpful tips we recommend you review for your Washer and Dryer.
ARE DRYER VENTS CLEAR?
Take a look at your dryer’s vent / vent hose and make sure it’s clear. Make sure there is no lint clogging the vent or the hose. Also check to ensure that the venting hose is not smashed up against a wall, causing blockage of air flow through it. If air is not able to properly flow through the vent and hosing, this can cause the non-resetable thermal fuse or safety thermostat to go out. If that happens, then it will cause the heat sensor to not work correctly. This results in the dryer running longer than it needs to, or it will not shut off at all. If these symptoms are already happening, please call us to schedule a service/ repair for the dryer.
DOES YOUR WASHER HAVE AN UNPLEASANT, “MOLDY” ODOR?
If there is a moldy or mildew odor emitting from your top-loading washer, we have a solution! The fairly new cleaning/ sanitizing products available for newer front-loading washing machines also work just as well in the older front-loading models. These sanitizing tablets are available at many retailers, but please give us a call if you would like us to provide you a sanitizing service, and we will be happy to come out and take care of it for you.
From all of our family at A-Appliance Repair Service, we would like to wish you and your family a very Happy & Healthy Easter & Happy Spring!
