The washer and dryer, sometimes found in a combo, are sometimes the most important and valued appliance that can be found in your home. But we often take them for granted, even though they make our lives easier and keep our clothes clean.
Washing machines, however, are one of the most likely appliances to break down and because they are rigged up to electricity and water, it’s dangerous to even think about attempting DIY repairs on such an appliance. It’s always best to leave this to the pros.

The common issues and troubleshooting them
Loud noise from washer/dryer
Both of these devices make noise naturally, but you’ll notice very quickly when something is wrong because they will begin to make weird sounds such as whirring, crashing or clanking. This usually indicates a fault is already there. Get this inspected and diagnosed as soon as possible, our professionals can take a look and sort this for you.
Washing machine leaking
Leaking appliances are a complete nightmare for your home. They can cause damage to the walls, floors and even other appliances around. The hose, which transports water into the washing machine, should be the first place to check. Make sure that there is no external damage and that water is flowing as it should be. It could be that this hose needs to be replaced. We can help.
The appliance won’t turn on at all
Once you have checked that power is reaching the outlet, the fuse isn’t blown and the breaker hasn’t been tripped and the issue is still happening… It’s time to call Peter’s Appliance Repair to get your appliance back up and running.
My dryer isn’t heating up
A dryer needs to push out heat to dry your clothes to the full extent if there’s not enough heat flowing it could be that your airflow is blocked. This is usually because the filter has been covered in lint from past washes. This is an easy fi
In order to dry your clothes effectively, your dryer must produce heat. If it isn’t producing enough heat to dry your clothes, it could possibly be the airflow with an issue. Ensure the filter is clear and not blocked by bits of material from past washes. A vaccum can fix this.
Should I consider a replacement?
