My Maytag washer wasn’t spinning, so I called NC Appliance Repair an hour before they closed. Alex indicated they couldn’t come out that night, but would be out between 10-12 the next day. Alex called me around 9 and asked if he could come out within the next half hour. I was home and said yes. Alex showed up when he said he would and was quick and courteous. I had a defective drum capacitor and he had the part with him. He explained the issue and presented me with (what I considered) a reasonable price. He even found a manual that was still inside the machine and showed me that I could use it to self-diagnose some issues in the future. His service as well as the 90 day guarantee on parts and labor make this a no-brainer for washing machine repairs. Thanks Alex!
Washing Machine maintenance tipsSome good washer maintenance tips:
- Don’t overload the machine. It is easy to do and makes your machine last longer, don’t overload it.
- Clean the inside and detergent areas often. Detergent can get built up and gumming, but keeping them clean will help the machine work properly.
- Use the right amount of soap and the right soap to do that job.
- To keep your washing machine smelling fresh, run vinegar through an empty cycle to kill off any harboring bacteria.
- Wipe down the gaskets, door, and drum with vinegar water to help control any odors that may build up.
- With a front load washing machine, leave the door slightly opened. This helps the machine dry out and prevents odors.
- Always transfer the clean washed laundry to the dryer as soon as possible. This too will help prevent odors that can be caused by the wet laundry just sitting there inside.
