Washer Repair Issues
Today’s washing machines are complicated. There’s a lot that can, and will, go wrong over the life of your washer. Don’t panic. Many issues are resolvable for much less than the cost of replacing the washing machine.
Water issues for your washer can vary. They could be simple filling issues that require a new water valve. Or they could be more serious like a overflowing washer that causes a flood. Leaks happen also. All of these issues should be checked out right away.
Washer repair has changed over the years. Especially with today’s machines that are run with electronic controls. Sometimes your washer won’t finish a cycle. Sometimes the machine will give you an error code. Some of these types of repairs can get expensive. Particularly with front-load washers
In some situations, a washer simply won’t drain the water from the tub. Drain pumps are common culprits here but there can be other issues. Sometimes, pump issues can be avoided by using a mesh laundry bag for smaller items like socks. When they aren’t in a bag, they can get down into a drain pump causing it to jam.
Repair vs Replace
One of the toughest decisions regarding your washer is whether to repair it or replace it. At Dye’s Appliance, we take into account the age, brand and the estimated cost of fixing your current washer. Our technicians can then answer any questions you have that will help you make the best decision.
Self-explanatory. The clothes are loaded into the top of the washer. This is the kind of washer most of us grew up with. Typically, they are more basic machines. Although recently manufacturers have added more electronic controls. Top-loaders are usually a bit easier to work on and tend to cost less to repair.
Also, self-explanatory. The laundry is load through the front of the unit. However, this means you won’t be able to open the door to add last-minute items once the tub is filling. Front-load washers tend to be more complicated, more electronic driven and more expensive to work on.
Washer Repair Process
For washer repair, an in-home service call is $75. You can schedule service by calling us at 816-436-2210 or you can request service through our website. We typically schedule calls with one-hour arrival windows. Our tech will call before the trip and arrive ready to help.

When your part arrives, one of our office staff will call to set up a return trip to finish the job. You won’t have to pay a thing until the job is complete.
