Appliance FAQs

Appliance Repair FAQ02Dishwashers
Q: My dishwasher won’t start! What can I do?
Check the racks and make sure they are pushed all the way in. Re-open the door and close it again. Listen for the click. The dishwasher won’t start with the door slightly ajar. If those items check out fine, look at your circuit breaker. It may need to be reset. If the breaker is on and the dishwasher still won’t start, you need to call us right away at 801-657-3515.

Q: Why do my glasses and dishware keep chipping?
Your dishwasher may be overloaded. If items are loose, they may shift when the appliance is running—causing a chip or break. Put any delicate items on the top rack and make sure they are secure.

Ovens
Q: What is the difference between an electric and a gas oven?
A gas oven heats from underneath with a flame located just below the oven cavity. A convection fan keeps the heat circulating. You will want to keep at least a 1” space on all sides of dishware or baking sheets to keep the air flow uniform. Non-convection electric ovens have an element located in the oven cavity. No air space is needed around baking sheets.

Washing Machines
Q: Why is my washing machine vibrating and rattling so bad?
Your unit is most likely not leveled properly. Many washers are self-leveling. If this is your case, adjust the front two washer feet to be level to each other first. Then, holding your feet up against the front bottom of the washer, reach over the unit and grab it by the back. Tilt the washer towards you until the back legs lift off the floor. Replace the washer on the floor. The legs should have leveled themselves and the vibrating should stop. Washing machines can “unlevel” themselves over time, so, periodically, adjust the back legs

Q: My machine is leaking! What should I do?
Check your hoses first. If they are cracked or torn in any way they are likely the culprit. Other than that, try to even out your loads and refrain from overloading the washing machine. If the machine continues to leak, call Appliance Repair Salt Lake City at 801-657-3515 and we will be right there to help!

Dryers
Q: Do I have to clean my lint catch every load?
We advise to, yes, clean the lint trap after every load. Dryer fires can happen as a result of not cleaning the lint trap.

Q: Why won’t my clothes dry?
The dryer may have too large of a load in it. To work properly, the dryer needs to have proper air circulation. If that is not the case, the venting is most likely to blame. Lint has clogged the dryer venting tube or it is possible that an animal has built some sort of nest through the exterior vent. Check the exterior first. Allow the venting to cool and then inspect the tubing that is attached from the back of the dryer to the wall vent. If possible, loosen the screw clamp, remove the tubing, and look inside for any clog. If none of these steps resolve your issue, call Appliance Repair Salt Lake City right away at 801-657-3515.

Refrigerators
Q: Why does my refrigerator buzz?
Refrigerators usually emit sounds when running. The compressor kicks in and hums to a certain degree. There may be a loose panel or screw that has developed. Appliance Repair Salt Lake City can certainly help out if it’s more than that!

Q: How often should I clean under the fridge?
It’s good practice to pull out the refrigerator and clean underneath about once a year. It does get dusty underneath and pet hair can collect along with the occasional pen. Cleaning is a matter of preference.

 If your appliance is making a noise that you have never heard before, or is operating strangely, or even not at all, call Appliance Repair Salt Lake City right away at 801-657-3515!
