Repair or Replace

Repair or Replace? General rule of thumb is... IF the appliance is more than 50% through its lifespan and IF the repair will cost half or more of the price tag of a new machine, it's probably time to replace it. The average appliance repair costs around $260.


This is a customer experince from this past week:


She called stating that her washer was not working and needed help. Josh went out next day and diagnosed the issue.


3 year old Front Load Washer (average lifespan 10-14 years) Faulty drain pump Leaking dispenser hose


$95.00 Diagnostic/service fee $20.68 Dispenser hose $25.92 Drain pump $4.42 Pump drain plug $11.95 Parts shipping $55.00 Labor & Installation $14.38 Sales tax

Total repair cost of $227.35


It would have been over $1000 to replace the washing machine. Josh is always honest and will never fix something that he knows you would be better off buying new!
