We've come a long way from the time when clean clothes meant needing a washboard and a creek. Before electricity was commonly available, starting around 1930, some popular early washing machines used a single-cylinder gas engine. Today's washers -- all electric -- typically come in top- and front-loading designs. Brands like Whirlpool and Maytag have pushed the envelope and delighted consumers with their Duet, Direct Drive, Calypso, and Cabrio; and Bravo and Performa models, respectively. Still, no matter how advanced washers get, they all eventually need some TLC to keep looking and working like new. If your washer is not starting, stopping mid cycle, vibrating, making a loud noise, overflowing, not draining, or doing anything else out of the ordinary, we can help.
