Washer / Dryer Repair

For many of us, our washing machines and dryers are an essential component of our daily life. We rely on them to get our laundry done quickly, and they can be essential when we are trying to tackle last-minute spills or accidents!


For this reason, having your dryer or washing machine break down is a disaster and one which you will want to get sorted as quickly as possible! Here at Blake’s Appliance Repair, we have the skills, technicians, and knowledge you need to get your household appliances up and running in no time.


Why Choose A Repair?

If an appliance breaks, it can be tempting to simply head to the store or go online and order a brand new replacement. You may think that this is a more convenient solution, but it can also be very expensive and have a detrimental impact on both your personal finances and the planet.


We have the ability to repair and rejuvenate your washing machine and dryer to have them running as good as new in no time, and this can save you some serious cash. We also aim to be faster than a replacement, offering same-day service wherever possible – far more convenient than a 2-day delivery window!


Common Washing Machine Problems

There are a few issues with washing machines which tend to crop up. These include:


  • Washer not filling

If the door is closed and all inlet pipes clear, make sure that your water supply is connected correctly. If the washer still won’t fill, give us a call.


  • Washer not draining

A broken pump or clogged filter are the most likely culprits here.


  • The washer doesn’t spin, or the drum does not turn

If you are experiencing these issues, you may have overloaded the appliance, or you could have worn brushes, a dodgy motor, or a drive belt problem. If the machine stops in the middle of a cycle, there could be an issue with the thermostat or timer.


Common Dryer Problems


You may need our help if you notice the following:


  • Dryer doesn’t start

If the machine is plugged in, not tripping the circuit breaker, but has no life, we can help!


  • Clogged dryer vent

If the vent is blocked, hot air stays trapped in the drum, leaving your clothes hot and damp but not dry. This can also cause long term problems with the heating system, so needs to be addressed as soon as possible.


  • The dryer isn’t spinning

A worn dryer belt is the most likely issue here, and we can easily replace this.


  • The appliance isn’t heating

If the heat has failed on your dryer, it may be due to the electronic ignition switch – you will definitely need an expert for this!


  • The machine makes strange noises

If you hear a squeaking or grinding noise, the drum belt may be loose, or the problem could be more serious.
