There are a few problems that we see more often than others when it comes to washing machine repair. These include:
Leaking Washing Machine
One of the most common issues we see is a leaking washing machine. If you notice that your washing machine is leaving water on the floor after each cycle, there’s a good chance that the door seal needs to be replaced. This is a repair that we can handle for you, and it’s relatively inexpensive.
Another common issue is a noisy washing machine. If your washing machine is making loud, grinding noises, something is likely stuck in the pump. This is a repair that we can handle for you, and it’s relatively inexpensive.
If your washing machine is not spinning, it could be because the lid switch is broken. What you should do if you’re lid switch is broken – You’ll need to open up the washing machine and check the lid switch. If it’s broken, we recommend replacing it. This is a repair that we can handle for you, and it’s relatively inexpensive.
If your washing machine is not draining properly, it could be because the pump is broken or clogged. If your pump is broken, we can replace it for you. Depending on your brand of washer, we may or may not have the pump available. In the rare case that we do not have your brand/type of pump, we can order the pump for you.
These are just a few of the most common problems that we see with washing machines. If you’re having any of these common issues, we’re only a phone call away!
The cost of washing machine repair will vary depending on the problem. For example, a simple fix like replacing a door seal will be less expensive than replacing a pump.
When you call us for service, we will diagnose the problem and give you an estimate for the repairs. We charge a small, affordable diagnostics fee, so you’ll know exactly what the problem is and how much it will cost to fix it before we even start the repairs. If you decide to do the repairs, the diagnostic fee (service call fee) goes toward the total cost of the repair.
The Average cost to repair a washing machine is $175 on the low end, and $450 on the high end. Again, please understand these are averages and the actual cost may vary depending on your brand of appliance and the part that is needed.
