Troubleshooting Difficult Appliances

Few things are more frustrating than appliances that simply won't stop having trouble. In addition to disrupting your daily routine, appliances with problems can also absorb a great deal of your time. A few months ago, I spent an entire Saturday trying to figure out why our dishwasher wasn't working. To end these kinds of problems, I decided that it would be smart to invest in an appliance services plan. Simply put, professional technicians would come out and repair our appliances whenever they stopped working properly. This plan was a lifesaver for our family, and this blog is all about why.

Should You Just Have Your Washer Repaired?

If your washer starts to give you problems, then you may be hearing from some people that you should have it repaired and from others that you should replace it. If you are going back and forth on this, then you should read this article. It will point out some different reasons for repairing the washer so you don't replace a washer that would have been better to keep and just repair. Here are a few things you are going to want to ask yourself about the washer; the answers will help make the decision clear.

The repair cost is much less than the replacement cost

In some cases, there may be so many tings wrong with a washer that it would make sense from a financial point of view to just replace it. Or, the problem the washer has may be excessively expensive. If neither of these things are true, then it would be a better idea to just have it repaired. With one repair on a fairly new washing machine, you can end up getting a lot more use out of the machine before anything else would go wrong. You always want to be sure you aren't the cause of issues; don't put too large of loads in the washer and never put hard things like shoes in it. Also, make sure it is kept on level ground.

You have a matching set

If you have a washer and dryer that are a matching set and you do have the option of going with just a repair, then you should consider the fact yours match. If you replace one of them, you may no longer have a matching set. Also, consider the fact that a matching set was purchased at the same time, so they are likely to wear out around the same time. This can mean that going with a repair will allow you to keep both until it is more obvious that the time to replace them both has come, and then you can go ahead and buy yourself a nice matching set again.


Unless there is a more obvious reason for replacing a washer, you should opt for repairs as long as everything has been going well up until that point. A repair person can also give you some good advice with regards to keeping both your washer and dryer in good condition.
