What Are the Best Washing Machine Repair Companies?

Luckily, your washing machine doesn't break down every day. Unfortunately, when it does, you may be left scurrying to find a reputable company that can repair it quickly without costing you a fortune.

Of course, we believe Puls offers the best washing machine repair service out there, but to always be sure we're offering the best service to our customers, we've checked out our competition for you. We chose to compare Puls with two well-known service companies - let's call them Company A and Company B - to see how they stacked up to Puls in terms of price, convenience, booking options and overall experience. The results surprised us, but see for yourself.

Price

washing machine repair costUpfront, transparent pricing with no hidden fees—that's what you can expect from a Puls washing machine service call. We offer an in-home diagnostic/inspection for only $79. Once the inspection is done, a quote is provided for repairing your washing machine and the diagnostic fee is waived entirely if our technician carries out the repair.

With Company A, each technician referral is through an independently owned and operated franchise location. While the website stated that they provided upfront flat rate pricing, no prices were available until after problem diagnosis. Each franchise location may also offer different pricing and warranties.

Company B is a lead generation company, so a list of individual contractors popped up when searching for washing machine repair. Surprisingly, several results were not related to washing machines, such as handymen, HVAC, and even small engine repair. An even deeper search indicated there was a consultation fee starting anywhere from $40 to $75 but most didn't offer any pricing at all.


Convenience and Booking Options

Puls washing machine repair booking optionsWe want you to put this repair squared away, so you can get back to more important (and more fun) things in life. To help you do that, Puls proudly provides easy online booking options and appointments as soon as same-day, so you can get your washing machine working as quickly as possible.

Company A's website also indicates that they provide online and same-day appointments, but when we tried to schedule one, it said that the service was not available in our area and that we'd have to call. They did promise to show up on time for the appointment, but we had no idea when that could take place.

Company B's website was even more frustrating, as all the referrals were for individual contractors. With only one technician available, the best they could offer was they would "try" to accommodate us in scheduling a convenient time.


Overall Experience

Furthermore, Company B's website led us to confusion - search results yielded social media photos of individual contractors (or their family photos) with unclear pricing and scheduling options.

We didn’t feel confident that either of them would send technicians with the skills needed to repair our washing machine throughout the booking experience.
