Average Price for a Dishwasher Repair

It also makes a difference where you live and where the repair service is located.

Some dishwasher issues can be remedied more easily than others. We've identified some of the common dishwasher problems in our how-to blog posts, including when your dishwasher is not cleaning properly or if your dishwasher is overflowing, leaking or not draining to help you figure out what's wrong and save money on the repair.

Of course, if you're ever unsure or feel as if you're in over your head, it's a good idea to consult with a professional repair service.


Dishwasher Repair vs. Replacement

According to expert reviewer Consumer Reports, basic models can cost $500 while top-of-the-line machines with all the bells and whistles can cost $1,000 or more. Of course, there may be instances when your dishwasher has cleaned its last dish, but if it's got a little life left, we highly recommend you let an expert help you out.
