No one is under the illusion that a washing machine will last forever, but a broken one always brings up the eternal question: should it stay or should it go? In this era of so many single-use products, we’ve become pretty accustomed to just replacing our appliances when they break down, so we don’t have to deal with figuring out what’s wrong with it or coughing up the repair expenses.
Having a broken dryer can be a real wet blanket (yes, pun intended) – but if you’re of a DIY mindset, it can take a load off if you’re able to figure out what’s wrong with your dryer on your own. Fortunately, we’re here to help you isolate and solve many common problems with our dryer troubleshooting guide, so you’re not left feeling high and dry.
There's never a good time for your dryer to break down. Call it Murphy's Law or just plain dumb luck, but doesn't it always seem like you have dryer problems at the worst possible moment?
It’s hard to imagine what life used to look like without the convenience of appliances until one of yours breaks down and temporarily throws your routine for a loop. When the dryer breaks down it can be especially frustrating, as it’s easily one of the most-used appliances in our whole arsenal.
With washing machine prices rising this year – USA Today says prices likely went up by 10% in 2018, bumping the average washing machine price from $900 to almost $1,000 – it would almost seem like a no-brainer to fix a broken washing machine, rather than replace it altogether.
Your washing machine is one of the most important appliances in your home, so keeping it running properly is kind of a big deal. If you've noticed a few washing machine problems, you might be wondering if it's something you can fix yourself or if it's time to call in a professional.
When your dryer isn’t heating up properly, it can feel like you’ve taken a step back in time to the days when people impatiently waited for their favorite shirt to dry in the sunshine. But don’t worry - just because your dryer isn’t heating up doesn’t mean that you have to resort to stringing your shirts on a clothesline forever.
If your washing machine isn’t cleaning clothes the way it used to, you don’t have to walk around with stains on your shirt or drop piles of cash on a dry cleaning service.
The washing machine is one of those modern luxuries that makes our lives so much easier—until, of course, it stops working properly. If you’ve noticed that your clothes are coming out smelling worse than they did before you put them in or that there are still stains on the fabric after going through a regular cycle, it may be time to examine what’s going on with the machine.
When a major home appliance goes on the fritz, your entire household can be disrupted until it get fixed. Puls provides the best overall appliance repair services when compared to the competition.
Doing the dishes isn’t exactly America’s favorite pastime, but a hard-working dishwasher makes the task much more tolerable—and quicker—so we can get back to things we actually enjoy (like anything but the dishes). So, when your dishwasher suddenly won’t start, it’s easy to panic and think you’ll be shelling out a hefty amount to replace it, but there are actually a few things you can do to troubleshoot what’s wrong and fix it on your own.
We all take for granted that our appliances will be working when we need them. We may even be tempted to ignore a small problem, hoping it will go away. Unfortunately, that little problem can easily turn into something bigger and turn your life upside down.
We’ve all been in this situation - you casually open the fridge or turn on the dishwasher, only to find that it’s not working or simply won’t turn on. Yes, it’s extremely unfortunate, but rather than panicking, it’s best to focus your energy on how you can proceed and get your appliance up and running as quickly as possible.
There's never a good time for your refrigerator to stop working, but there can definitely be a worst time — like just after you've stocked up on food for your holiday meals. You could try to move everything into coolers or to your neighbor's fridge, but just imagine the mess, the inconvenience, and the expense. It's definitely not the way you'll want to start out the holidays.
Now that the official kick-off to the holiday season has begun, you've probably got a long list of things you need to accomplish before you start entertaining. The last thing you need is to have your dishwasher break down. Sure, you can wash all those "good dishes" by hand, but who's got the time for that?
