At one time or another every homeowner has the unfortunate experience of a major appliance malfunctioning. Whether it’s from normal wear and tear, or from operator error, we generally are faced with calling a repair professional. When do we make the decision however, to throw in the towel and by a new appliance? This may be a question best left to a professional.
A washing machine is an appliance that takes a considerable amount of abuse. When consulting a professional washer repair service be sure to inquire as to whether or not they offer warranty on their work, and are in fact authorized to work on your particular brand of washer. If the answer is yes, and they agree to give you a free estimate for repair work, have them make a determination about the pros and cons of buying a new machine. Make sure that you receive an estimate before the washer repair technician starts working on your machine. Often times there are miscommunication issues where the technician assumed that the client new the rates. Make sure to ask the technician over the phone what their rates are and how the repair process works.
If your required washer repairs are minor, you are better off having the work done, and getting the most out of your existing appliance. If repair costs exceed the washer’s value, you are obviously now in the market for a new machine. But make sure you factor your time and effort into purchasing and transporting the new washer. If your warranty has expired, ask the repair technician what type of guarantee they might offer for the repairs being done.
A repair professional that is proud of their work, has a neat appearance, and is authorized to service most major appliances is certainly worth hanging onto. Most appliance repair professionals are experienced with all the major brand appliances, but it is best to double check. There are many reliable and trustworthy washer and household appliance repair companies out there. They typically have the same rates and offer the same warranties. Check to see if they offer discounts of any kind because many of them do. You need to do your due diligence and find one that you feel comfortable with. He may tell you not to place 12 pairs of jeans in the washer at one time, but I suppose that was an accident right?
