Washing Machine & Dryer Maintenance Tips

Front Loading Washers: To prevent mold or mildew growth, wipe off the rubber door seals of the appliance after each use.

All Washing Machines: To prevent the chance of stagnant water & odors in your washing machine, increase air flow through the machine by leaving the washing machine door open when not in use.

For Insurance: Consider replacing the rubber water supply hoses every five years – or whatever period the machine manufacturer recommends. Insurance companies may claim water damage from a hose leak is a result of improper maintenance, and will not cover the subsequent damage.

Dryers: To help with proper functioning, make sure dryer vent hose is not kinked or bent at a severe angle. This can come from having the dryer pushed too close to the wall. Additionally, clean the lint screen regularly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can ABC work on any type of washing machine?

Yes, ABC can work on top load agitator washers, front load washers and top load impeller washers. Also, we can work on nearly any make or model of washing machine and dryer. Contact us and we can answer any of your questions about the services we provide and how we can help you.

My washer’s warm setting isn’t very warm. How can I adjust it?

A washer combines water from the hot water tap and the cold water tap to reach a desired warm water temperature. Check to see make sure water is flowing properly from the warm water tap. Also, remember, during colder weather, overall water temperature can be affected. Additionally, remember to check your water heater for proper operation.

Why isn’t my washer rinsing all the suds from my laundry?

You may be using too much detergent. Concentrated detergents can be used at much lower measures. Check the detergent packaging for the proper amount per load. Also, if your home has a water softener, even less detergent will be required.

Can you work on my clothes dryer?

Yes! ABC can work on your dryer, as well as your washer. We often take for granted how easy it is to use these appliances. So when either (or both) of these appliances are not working properly, your laundry can quickly get out of hand.

The appliance repair specialists at ABC often get called in when homeowners notice the following types of problems:

  • A dryer that won’t heat up
  • A dryer that shuts off prematurely
  • A very loud dryer
  • Issues with a dryer not starting
  • A dryer that takes too long to dry clothes
  • Clothes that aren’t tumbling in the dryer

Reach out to ABC, and we would be happy to quickly get your dryer up and running again.

Why does my dryer take so long to dry a load?

Try checking the vents for blockage. An average laundry load should take about 45 minutes. If you’re experiencing loads taking more than an hour to dry, call ABC to have your dryer vent system checked. If the dryer is blowing cool air, it could require a new heating element.

What about softening sheets? Will they harm my dryer?

The sheets won’t damage your dryer, but do make sure you clean your lint filters before each use. This will prevent build-up of softening agents on the moisture sensor and keep your dryer running more efficiently.

Can you advise me on whether to fix or replace my clothes washer?

With any appliance, there comes a time where you have to make the difficult decision about whether to invest in a costly repair or purchase a new unit.

Clothes washers tend to last for about 12 years on average. If you have had your appliance about that long, it may be time to start looking into purchasing a new one. Since many new washers are more energy-efficient and require less detergent, homeowners may decide to upgrade their appliance earlier than that once issues arise.

If you are experiencing any of these other issues, it could be time to start washer shopping:

  • Your washing machine is leaking excessively
  • There is an abnormal amount of noise coming from your washing machine
  • Your washer is moving around a lot
  • There isn’t enough water flowing into your drum
  • Your unit smells weird

One of the appliance repair specialists at ABC would be happy to come to your home and give you an honest assessment of whether it’s time to replace or repair your system, if you are still not quite sure what is the wisest move.

What can I do to extend my clothes washer’s life?

There are a few things you can do to keep your washing machine working longer, including:

  • Replacing your washer’s hose every three to five years
  • Making sure that your appliance is at least four inches away from the wall
  • Cleaning your lint filter after every cycle
  • Rinsing soap residue off the inside of the washer with either a store-bought washing machine cleaner or with a mixture of hot water and vinegar
  • Only using as much detergent as you need to wash your clothes, as excess detergent can cause wear and tear to your washer at a faster rate and can leave soap residue on your clothes
  • Avoid overloading your machine

What Our Customers Are Saying

Based on 4078 reviews

Shelly Dees


“I was very impressed with the handyman services provided by ABC Home & Commercial Services. Mark was professional and treated my home like it was his own. He did a phenomenal job fixing the loose siding on the chimney and securing the cedar shutters on the front of our home. While working inside our home, he listened to my concerns and addressed the tasks with efficiency and informed me of the curing time needed for the caulk to properly dry. I would definitely contact ABC again for future needs and request the same technician again.”

Cindy Durand


“We had a problem with an AC unit not cooling. We couldn’t reach ABC over the weekend (turned out we were calling the wrong number. They have an after hours answering service) so we called a different company. They told us the compressor was tripping the breaker and needed to be replaced. We were quoted $3700 for a new compressor or $7800 for a whole new AC. We decided to hold off and get a second opinion from ABC because we’ve used them for various things for more than 30 years, and we trust them. Their AC tech came out and said he was pretty sure the problem was the breaker, not the AC, so we asked ABC to send out an electrician. The electrician pulled out the breaker and confirmed that was the problem. It took him less than 45 minutes, and that was with me watching and asking questions about it. He probably would have been able to do it faster without an audience. For both techs to come out, the total was about $160. With the other company, we would have paid at least $3700 just to find out it still didn’t fix the problem.”
