DIY laundry center repair
Laundry centers are a space-saving invention that combines a washer and dryer in one unit, with the dryer stacked above the washer. The laundry center's compact size makes it a great option for small living spaces. And because the two components are permanently joined, a laundry center is often more stable than stacking a dryer and front-load washer and joining them with brackets. If you're having a problem with your laundry center—maybe your washer won't start, spin or drain or your dryer won't work—our troubleshooting guidance can help you narrow down the cause.
Use our laundry center error code charts to help you find the cause of a problem if the control displays a code or flashes its lights in a repeating pattern. Once you figure out what's wrong, our laundry center repair guides give you step-by-step instructions for replacing a part. For answers to common questions and other laundry center tips, see our articles and videos page.
To find the owner’s manual or a complete list of replacement parts for your laundry center, search for your model number.
