One of the biggest questions when it comes to our washer machine that has broken down is whether to have the appliance repaired or to buy a new one. If we are in luck and the appliance is still under warranty then we are in luck. However, if our appliance has a few years on it and has seen quite a bit of wear and tear it can become a nightmare question.
With a lot of home machines we can call our local appliance repair company but unless we have a good idea of what is wrong with it then we may well have to pay a call out fee to have someone to come out to our home to let us know what our best options are. If we need to replace it then we may either have to pay for the old one’s removal or work out a way to dispose of it which may also mean finding a vehicle to help you remove it from the property. With local county laws, you may need to pay to dump your old appliance once you have organized for it to be transported to the local dump.
Fortunately, while washing machines may seem a complex piece of machinery to many of us they can be broken down into their own components each of which can usually be easily repaired by a quality washing machine repair person. Washing machines are made up of the motor which turns and spins the load holder and pulleys or belts that take the instruction from the motor. You may have a newer machine that includes a sophisticated computer with a visual display which, if the electronic parts are in stock or available to be ordered can actually be an easy fix if you have a local technician available to disconnect the old part and reinstall and wire in the replacement part.
The good news is that your local service company can replace or repair each of these three components at a reasonable price so if you are having issues with your machine give your local washer repair company a call and ask for their advice first before considering anything else. You may even find that your local service person also retails washer machines and who may offer you a trade-in price on your old faulty machine and give you a good price on a brand new unit complete with a new wear and tear warranty.
