School is out and college students are returning home from Washington Adventist University and other universities for the summer or winter vacation, and a busier home means more work for your appliances.

Whether you want a refreshing beverage from the fridge after a long day at Robert C McDonell Campground or you're washing all the clothes and towels from a camping weekend, your appliances have their work out for them.

While it’s ideal to keep an eye on your appliances all year, some are more susceptible to seasonal issues than others. Your refrigerator works hard to keep your food fresh, but it’s especially taxed in the summer when 97-degree temperatures cause it to run more frequently. Conversely, your stove and oven might be used more in winter, which sees an average temperature of 30 degrees, to cook your holiday feasts, which can put a strain on its components.

Our appliance repair professionals keep the appliances in your home up and running when you need them the most.

If you notice unusual noises, malfunctions, and issues that you can't pinpoint, call a repair pro before you decide to replace.

If an older appliance needs frequent attention, it may be time to invest in an updated version.

It’s possible to exceed your appliance's expected lifespan with some simple actions. Taking care of your appliances helps keep them like new and can save you a lot of money. First, learn how to clean and care for all your appliances, whether it's a Kenmore refrigerator or General Electric dishwashers.

It's important to diagnose the problem before deciding to take repairs on yourself. Dryers can experience a range of issues—from not starting properly to the drum not turning. It may be that your dryer is taking much too long or that it gets too hot. Find the source of the problem before you try to repair it. If you are curious about professional services, our average dryer repair cost is $351.78 on average in Kensington.

It's easier to locate the problem if you understand the basics: Most dryers run on a motor that uses pulleys and belts turn the drum. Air that's gas- or electric-heated is pushed through the drum. Timed thermostats control heat and speed. Many if not most dryers also have a restart button that can get things running if the issue is not part of the motor, switches, or electrical system. If you are having trouble diagnosing the issue, it may be time to contact a dryer repair professional in Kensington.
