Washer and Dryer Repair

Skilled and Experienced Washer and Dryer Repair across Mississippi’s Gulf Coast 

According to the latest reports and consumer survey results, the average American family does between 400 and 500 loads of laundry each year. If you have teenagers, you may even be pushing the limits of the higher end of the spectrum. For the most part, laundry is just a standard routine that can easily be molded around all those other everyday tasks. When your washer or dryer breaks down, though, it really hampers your daily routine.  

At Coast Appliance Repair, we’re well aware of just how important those appliances are to our friends and neighbors along Mississippi’s Gulf Coast. In fact, ours are just as vital to our homes. This is why we’re dedicated to offering top-notch washer and dryer repair whenever you need it. Call us at (228) 831-1552 or contact us via the form we’ve provided on our website and let us help get you back on track. 

What Happens When the Washer or Dryer Leaves You in the Lurch? 

Washing machines have been around since the late 1700s, but the fully automatic models we’re accustomed to today didn’t hit the market until 1930. With washers built prior to that, the process was mostly manual. Before those came along, tubs and washboards were the go-to option.  

Modern technology certainly saves considerable time and energy. Even “hand wash only” can safely be sent through some washing machines these days. Most of us couldn’t imagine having to hand wash an entire load of laundry much less a week’s worth of dirty clothes.  

It’s a process that takes hours, extra time people just don’t have amidst work, family and typical daily activities. For some local businesses, like salons, hotels and laundry services, keeping up with the amount of work involved would be unmanageable. Our skilled and experienced team is well-versed in both home and commercial appliance repair, so no matter how heavily you rely on your washing machine, we can keep it up and running to help avoid all the potential hassles of a breakdown. 

Aside from washing, wringing out as much water as your washer’s spin cycle is humanly impossible. Drying clothes and linens in the dryer generally takes several cycles when they’re still soggy going in. Resorting to the old ways of line-drying might be a feasible alternative, but our notorious southern humidity and surprise storms tend to put a damper on things.  

Obviously, the laundromat is also an option. When your washing machine or dryer breaks down, it’s definitely more favorable than hand-washing or waiting hours for the laundry to dry outside on the line only to have a pop-up shower take you back to square one. Still, the cost of the laundromat adds up in only a few trips. Waiting around there while knowing your time could be better spent elsewhere has its own frustrations. 

Our team offers Gulf Coast appliance repair to meet the needs of everyone in our area. From full-time and seasonal residents to the businesses providing services to us all, we stand ready to put our training, skills and experience to work for you.  

Deeper Issues 

From high school football practice to sand and ocean water following a day at the beach, the remnants of daily life left behind on your laundry create a prime breeding ground for mildew. Our coastal heat and humidity don’t help matters in this regard. Despite the cooling and dehumidifying effects of air conditioning, mildew still begins to grow within 24 hours on damp laundry. 

Mildew isn’t particularly dangerous unless you have specific sensitivities to it. Having said that, it can cause wheezing, coughing and skin, eye and respiratory issues for some people. Besides these problems, it does have a distinct odor and leave stains the best pretreatments on the market can’t touch. Even bleach can let you down in the face of a mildew stain.  

Whether you have damp, dirty laundry waiting for washing machine repair or clothes left wet because your dryer failed, getting your appliances back in working order is essential. Email us at [email protected] or call us at (228) 831-1552 and tell us what type of issue you’re having.

Typical Washer and Dryer Breakdowns 

We’ve seen any number of problems crop up with our customers’ washing machines and dryers as well as our own. It seems the more high-tech they are, the more things can go wrong. Some of the washing machine issues we most often see include: 

  • Broken Lid Switches 
  • Seized or Blocked Drain Pumps (missing socks often reappear here) 
  • Broken Belts 
  • Frozen Pulleys 
  • Burned-out Motors 
  • Worn-out Clutches 
  • Worn Door Seals 
  • Leaking Tubs 
  • Damaged Timers and Controls 

These are only a few of the washer problems we’ve repaired. Everything from loose hoses and foul odors to washing machines walking across the laundry room could arise. When it comes to dryers, we commonly see: 

  • Broken Belts 
  • Malfunctioning Heating Coils 
  • Seized Pulleys and Motors 
  • Worn-out Rollers 
  • Faulty Timers and Thermostats 
  • Burned-out or Broken Fuses 
  • Broken Starter Switches and Door Switches 

From running but not heating up to heating up too much and the drum not turning, dryers can give just as many problems as their companion appliances. The longer they’re out of commission, the more inconveniences they bring to your life. We offer the full range of household and commercial appliance repair services, so don’t hesitate to contact us with your washing machine and dryer issues.
