Frequently Asked Questions
Which brands of washers and dryers does Paul's Washer and Dryer Repair Service repair?
Paul's Washer and Dryer Repair Service has over 25 years of experience cleaning and repairing washing machines and dryers of various models and brands. The dominant manufacturers of household washers and dryers in the United States are Maytag, Whirlpool, and Kenmore. Included under the Kenmore brand are also Frigidaire, Speed Queen, Whirlpool, and General Electric. The skilled mechanics at Paul's Washer and Dryer Repair Service are familiar with all of these brands and are ready to repair or service any household washer or dryer efficiently and affordably.
Why isn't my dryer drying my clothes?
There could be many reasons for a dryer to stop working properly. The problem could be something as simple as a clogged dryer duct, which is preventing heat from entering the drying chamber. Maytag, Whirlpool, and Kenmore dryers also tend to have their own common manufacturing-related mechanical problems. Maytag dryers often malfunction because of a failure in either the igniter, or heating coils, which are both important components of the ignition system responsible for generating heat in the dryer. A decrease in heating efficiency could also indicate a constriction of air-flow that is preventing hot air from entering the drying chamber.
If you are not sure what the problem is, get a professional opinion before you spend money on an unnecessary repair or a new machine. The experienced repair technicians at Paul's Washer and Dryer Repair Service can distinguish whether the problem is mechanical, related to a clog in the dyer duct, or both. We are confident that we can identify and diagnose the problem in your particular machine, and take care of it efficiently and effectively.
Should I clean my dryer?
Aside from following the instruction manual's recommendations for general upkeep and lint removal, Paul's Washer and Dryer Repair service recommends that Kenmore, Whirlpool, Speed Queen, Maytag, Frigidaire, and General Electric dryers receive a regular professional cleaning every 18 months. Unmaintained dryers can cause excessive lint and heat build-up that could become a potential dangerous fire hazard in some models.
Why won't my top load washer finish the cycle?
Customers who ask this question are often concerned that their washing machine may need to be replaced. This is a very common occurrence with top load washers, and, most likely, the problem can be easily fixed. Each brand of washing machine has its own typical manufacturing-related mechanical problems; however, the most common explanation is the safety switch mechanism. It is best to get a professional opinion before spending money on unnecessary repairs or a new washer. The experienced repair technicians at Paul's Washer and Dryer Repair Service can distinguish whether the problem is mechanical or related to the safety switch mechanism. We are confident that we can identify and diagnose the problem in your particular machine, and take care of it efficiently and effectively.
Why does my front load washer have water in it?
First, do not panic; this is a common occurrence with front load washers. More than likely, the machine is not broken. Front load washers have a very efficient basket, pump, and pulley system that needs to be cleaned out occasionally. Front load washers also have sensors that recognize when there is water in the machine, so if there is anything clogging the water pump, the washer will not complete the cycle.
Should I have the water hoses changed on my washing machine?
Manufactures recommend that the inlet hose, which pumps water into the machine, be changed every five-years. As a preventative measure, make sure that the hoses attached to your washer are burst-proof to avoid flooding. Bursting washing machine hoses cause nearly 150 million dollars of damage a year in the United States and Canada. Paul's Washer and Dryer Repair Service carries the highest quality brands of burst-proof hoses at a fair price.
Do your replacement parts come with a warranty
Yes, Paul's Washer and Dryer Repair Service offers a 90 day warranty on replacement parts.

*Avoid over loading the machine
*Clean the lint screen after each use
