My appliance is not working: What can I do?

Start over 

Yes, we mean the old turn-off and reset trick. Most appliances nowadays have a heavy digital functioning and use software to run properly, sometimes a quick rest can help with the issues. 

So, here’s what you can do: 

  • Turn off your broken washing machine, dishwasher, etc 
  • Check your manual for restarts instructions 
  • Restarts the appliance, give it a few minutes 
  • Try to run a cycle or simple function 

Read the appliance instruction manual 

One of the best and most simple things you can do when your appliances stop working is to read the instruction manual. It could be that your dishwasher filter needs replacing or something else triggered the stop. The manual can cover these types of cases and point you in the direction of the solution. 

If you have lost your appliance manual but know your brand and model you can probably find the manual online.

  • This is the second time I’ve used their services, and both time was helped by Alex. He was incredibly thorough, punctual and incredibly diligent. He went above and beyond and even fixed a wobbly door under my sink. It’s always a pleasure to find a reliable and efficient service, and I would absolutely use Alex in the future!

  • Working in a veterinary clinic - we understandably go through a lot of laundry. Our washer was out of commission and within a very short period of time, Igor not only diagnosed the problem but had it fixed. He was efficient and easy to work with.
