laundry machines for businessWhen your commercial washer is leaking water, it can create a huge mess, so you’ll want to correct the issue right away. Here are a few things to look out for:

Drain Hose – If the washer is leaking during the spin cycle, you probably have a problem with your drain hose. Check the connections to make sure it is secure, ensure it is in good condition and free of damage, and then check for clogs. If there are any cracks or leaking around the hose where it attaches to the dryer, you will either need to purchase a new one or cut the end off and re-clamp it.

Fill Hose – The next thing you should do is make sure that the fill hoses are in good condition and are still securely in place, but [...]

washing machinesYou just got a call from a customer at your laundromat, or a tenant in your apartment complex – the washing machine will not spin. What do you do? The first thing you should do is make sure that they did not overload the machine and cause it to become unbalanced. If that isn’t the case, check out the following:

Switches and Setting – There is a switch within the lid that detects when the door is open or closed. The washing machine will not run if the lid is open. Make sure the switch is in good condition. If it is broken, it could be preventing the machine from spinning.

Next, check the speed selector switch to make sure that it is not positioned between speeds.

Drain Pump – It is also possible that a foreign object [...]

Drain Pump – It is also possible that your drain pump could be clogged. You can check for this by draining your tub and disconnecting the hoses to check for objects in the pump. If the pump is locked up for any reason, it can cause your motor to seize [...]

No Heat

The most common problem that occurs in commercial dryers is a lack of heat. The drum continues to turn, but the clothes just won’t dry.  The most common problem is a bad ignition, depending on what type of ignition system the dryer runs on.

  • Glow-Bar Ignitions – A glow-bar ignition works by sending electricity through a heating element until it is hot enough, which signals the gas valve to turn on. Check the glow bar when the dryer is in operation. If it doesn’t begin to glow red hot, you will need to check the voltage.
  • Spark Ignitions – Spark ignitions light the [...]

Being familiar with the inner workings of your commercial washers and performing regular maintenance tasks will keep them in excellent condition, so you avoid a costly replacement.
