Washers and Dryers are supposed to be quiet enough that you can have a conversation in the adjoining room without shouting or missing a word. Can you?
If your washer or dryer is making loud noises, don’t ignore it, something is unbalanced and needs your attention. Fortunately, most imbalances are small things that can be easily fixed, but leaving them alone for too long can lead to internal damages and high repair costs. Often, balancing your machines can be as simple as making sure they aren’t wedged against a wall, propped up on some debris or the feet haven’t been adjusted to the correct height. Checking these problems can save your machines and your ears! If that isn’t the problem it could be the load you’re washing or drying…
Balancing a laundry load in washer or dryer isn’t the first thing we think about when we start piling the laundry in. Typically, the thought process is to just get the laundry done so we won’t have to worry about it until next week. However, if a load of laundry is too large or not evenly distributed inside the drum, the appliance can start to wobble, shake, bang and rock until one of the many precise mechanical parts breaks or comes out of alignment.
