Do you own a commercial laundry machine or use them to do your laundry? If so, then you’ve probably experienced any of the frustrating issues that these machines can have. You might have a clogged machine, sensors not working properly, or a machine that isn’t washing as it should.
In this article, we’re going to discuss some of the most common reasons why you may need commercial laundry parts for repairs.
If you’ve ever experienced a clogged clothes chute, you know how frustrating it can be. Clogs often happen when a lot of lint has accumulated in the dryer. The dryer indirectly acts as an exhaust system for all of the lint, which means the issue will only worsen if left unchecked. The trick for clogged clothes chute solutions is to remove the lint from the clothes. Since dryers can’t come apart, the only way to do this is by opening up your dryer and removing any lint blocking the exit vents on the back.
Various sensors may go bad; this includes the Hot/Cold sensor, the Lint Filter clog sensor, and the Door Switch. The sensors determine if a machine is at the proper temperature for washing or drying. The Door Switch senses if the door is open during washing or drying. If any of these sensors fail to work properly, then this can cause a serious malfunction in your machine.
The motor is essentially the engine of the laundry machinery. If your motor has issues, it has a similar impact to having a car without an engine. If your washer doesn’t spin or drain properly, you likely have an issue with your motor. The best way to deal with this is to call our professionals to fix your machine. The most important part about the motor is to keep it clean. The excess lint build-up can block your dryer outlets and cause your motor to overheat.
A laundry machine needs time to cool down properly, just like your car. It might be necessary to contact our skilled technicians to assess the damage if you pull the door open soon after washing or drying. The dryer can get up to 230 degrees fahrenheit during a cycle, which can seriously damage your hands. You should always allow the machines to cool for at least 15 minutes before operating them.
As with your dryer, your washer also needs time to cool down. The air shutter is the grate that lines the opening of your washer to prevent excess water from escaping. If you do not give your washer enough time to cool down, then this will cause excess water to get out, potentially flooding your laundry room.
The most important step in getting the best results with your commercial laundry machines is ensuring that you use enough detergent. Your commercial laundry machines handle approximately 10 lbs of laundry detergent. This amount is more than the standard size household detergent bottles. If you overload your machines with too much detergent, then this will harm your machine and the clothes.
The drain pump is what removes excess water from your machine. It uses centrifugal force to get rid of excess water in the machine. The pump should be working properly if the water drains out of your machine properly and keeps pace with the speed of the washing or drying cycle. There are some issues with this pump, which can cause excess water to accumulate inside the machine. You might have a clog in your drain pipes or an issue with the motor.
The lint screen can be an issue you must consider. The lint screen is what collects the excess lint in your laundry room. It’s important to keep the lint filter clean, and it is also important to clean the machine itself. Use caution when disassembling your machine because the interior can be sweltering. Look for external lint that may have built up and caused a clog.
The drum is one of the most important parts of your washer machine. This is where the machine spins and agitates to remove the excess water from your clothing. If your machine is having an issue with spinning and draining, it could be due to problems with the drum. This can mean your bearings have issues or excessive lint in the drum.
Water pressure flowing through commercial washing machines is vital for their performance. You may have a problem with the pressure if you are using too much detergent and not using enough water. You might also have problems with the pipes or parts inside your machine. If you use too much detergent, you will have to use less water. If you are using too little water, then you need to increase the flow of water in your machine.
