If you have a broken dryer or washer in your home it is a big inconvenience. You’re too busy for trips to the laundromat. And if you don’t want piles of dirty dishes everywhere, you should call a local appliance repair service. You will want an affordable and reliable repair company that gives you same-day service. You want to call Santa Maria Appliance Repair.

Our skilled technicians bring the tools for the job, have years of training, and are experienced in completing common and unusual washer and dryer repairs during the first service call. We load up our service vans with the manufacturer parts required for all the major brands of washers and dryers such as Lennox, GE, Armstrong, Goodman, LG, Kenmore, Carrier, Bryant, Sears, RCA, and others!



We come out on repair calls for loud washer noises more often than for any other issues with this appliance. The usual culprits are worn belts, broken bearings, or a damaged pump motor. We will arrive the same day that you call, investigate the issue, and either repair the offending part or replace it.


When a washing machine does not turn on, the problems that we fix include broken door latches, malfunctioning timers, and bad thermal fuses. But, the first reason it does not turn on is something that you need to check. Is the appliance plugged in and is the circuit breaker on? When your washer will not agitate, you need repair or replacement of the transmission, drive belt, coupler, or agitator cogs.


When your washer will not spin it has a problem with the motor coupling, wax motor, or door latch. We will be pleased to come out the day that you call to fix any of these problems on a short service call.


Damaged water inlet valves, water level pressure switches, or air dome tubes are the usual reasons that your washer overflows. When this happens, call us as soon as you finish mopping up the water.


Your washer needs to produce both hot and cold water. When this does not happen there is a broken temperature control switch or a problem with the inlet hose.



The most common problems we see with dryers cause loud noises. Worn belts, broken bearings, or damaged seals all can cause noise. Fix these issues because the next thing is that your dryer will not run at all!


A dryer has to heat up to dry the clothes. When your dryer does not get hot enough it has a damaged cycling thermostat, high limit thermostat, or heating element. And, the same parts can malfunction in such a way as to make the dryer too hot as well! Call us for same-day repairs on all major brands.


When the dryer does not turn on make sure it is plugged in and the circuit breaker is on before calling for repairs. The usual trouble comes from a bad cycling thermostat, damaged high limit thermostat, or a broken heating element. All of these can be repaired or replaced on a quick service call.


If your dryer has a door switch that is broken or a timer that is acting up, it will not turn off. Do not become accustomed to unplugging the appliance. Call us for this easy same-day fix.


To correctly dry your clothes a dryer needs to advance through its whole cycle. This does not happen when the timer motor is damaged or there is a broken cycling thermostat. We carry the parts to fix this problem on all major brands.
