A Glossary of Washer & Dryer Service & Repair Terms

Mechanical washers and dryers make life incredibly convenient and much easier than using an old-fashioned washboard. However, being that they are machines, they sometimes require repairs. This glossary of terms will help you to understand how washers and dryers work, and what to do when they don’t.

  • Drain Line – The drain line consists of a drain hose and pump. It can get clogged when clothes get suck between the tubs and sucked into the hose. This will cause your washer to spin but not pump out the water. Clog removal can be performed by yourself or a professional.
  • Gearbox – The gearbox contains all of the washing machine’s gears, which control the spin cycle speed. A gear reduction is necessary to do this since the motor only spins at one speed. A problem with your gearbox can cause a failure of the washing machine to agitate.
  • Idler Pulley Wheel – If your clothes aren’t tumbling properly in the dryer, you may need to fix or replace your idler pulley wheel. This part helps the belt rotate the drum. Troubleshoot this problem by checking to see if it is worn or cracked.
  • The National Appliance Service Technician Certification (NASTeC) – From connecting appliances to your home’s gas line to wiring electric cables, repair technicians perform jobs that require skilled training. NASTeC certification requires passage of an exam that covers diagnosis, parts repair, installation and maintenance of home appliances.
  • Rental – If you can’t afford to replace your broken appliance altogether, look into appliance rental. Check for highly-rated brands and models. Ask about monthly rates, and find out whether service repair is included.
  • Stabilizer – The stabilizer in a washing machine is a large spring that keeps the machine from shaking when it spins.

    Because washers and dryers are so heavily used, they are often prone to breaking, having small problems or needing simple maintenance and upkeep. Of course, washers can be used in homes, laundromats and for industrial purposes; for these instances, you may need to investigate the type of repair service that you need. Also, if you are planning on purchasing a new washer or dryer, it is important to check into the different options that are available. For instance, you will want to consider what type of warranty is available for the machines. If you are shopping for your home, you will also want to check into other appliances that the brand may manufacture and what installation services are offered. As you begin checking into washing machines and dryer repair and service companies, you might learn a few facts about these appliances. Like, the first few machines invented to clean clothes were actually hand-operated. When electricity became readily available to the public, it greatly helped the invention process. With the addition of motors, pumps and cycle control technology, cleaning clothes has become much easier. However, the machines themselves have become more complex, needing trained technicians to assist with troubleshooting problems. As you might find out, different brands may have brand-specific parts that the appliance operates with. When a pulley wheel breaks or a gearbox needs to be replaced, it helps to have researched the warranty coverage on the appliance. Many cables, springs and replaceable tube parts can be mailed to whichever repair service that you choose to use. Keep in mind that you might want to leave removal and repair of your model to someone who is actually trained to fix the gas or electric washing machine.
