There are a few things you can look into fixing yourself before calling for washer repair in St. Charles when having problems. This will save you time and money. As silly as they might sound, they happen often in our field of work.
- If your washer is totally non-responsive you might want to check if it's plugged in or might have blown a fuse in the fuse box inside your apartment or outside your house.
- If your washer is leaking you will want to check the drain hose, making sure it's properly connected to the drain and does not have any cracks.
- If your washer keeps filling up with water for a long period of time and never switches to the agitate cycle, you will need to check that the drain hose is placed at the right height. When installed too low or placed too deep into the drain there is a natural siphoning effect that occurs that does not allows the washer to fill to the appropriate amount before switching to the next cycle.
- If your washer won't drain for TOP LOADS the problem is usually in either in the drain hose or drain pump. First look at the hose and make sure it doesn't have a kink. Next, check the pump. Feel free to talk to an expert about this repair don't hesitate to call.

Whether you have a gas or electric dryer, there are a number of things that you can do to keep it running longer, better, safer and cheaper. Protecting your appliances with regular maintenance makes good sense.
When a dryer has no heat call to schedule an appointment. Between the fuses, thermostats, heating elements and timers an accurate diagnosis saves you time and money.
We guarantee 100% satisfaction or your money back.
- Keep your dryer exhaust vent clear. Signs of a clogged dryer vent are clothes that take a long time to dry, or dryers that aren’t heating as quickly as they used to. Clogs happen fast, so check often. Clogged dryer vents make dryers run longer, shortening their useful life
- Separate items by weight. Lighter items and many synthetics need less time to dry. By separating items, you can maximize efficiency of your dryer while cutting down on unnecessary wear on the dryer.
- Avoid overloading your dryer. Running a huge drying load makes the dryer work harder and less efficiently.
- Clean the lint filter on your dryer after each use. This will maintain good air flow, which helps dry clothes faster.
- Clean your dryer's exhaust duct annually. Keeping the dryer's exhaust duct free of lint will reduce the number of clogs. It will also keep you safer. Clogged dryer ducts are a fire hazard, so keep them clear.
- Use your dryer efficiently. If you have a number of loads to do, don't fold a load by pulling items out of the dryer one at a time. Instead, pull an entire load out and reload with wet clothes while the dryer is still hot. Fold the freshly dried clothes while the new load is drying. This will keep the dryer from cooling down between loads and having to come back up to temperature. Changing your routine slightly will extend the life of the dryer and save on energy.
- Use only the drying power you need. Don't set the dryer for 70 minutes when 50 minutes will do the job. Do some creative observation to see how long it really takes to dry your clothes. Once you have a good idea, choose a more precise dryer setting for each load.
- Consider using a clothesline instead of your dryer. When drying large items like bedspreads, comforters and area rugs, use a clothesline for the bulk of the drying. When the items are almost dry, use the dryer to fluff and soften them for a few minutes before folding.
