Washing Machine Repair Near Me: What Are Your Options?

All Posts

If there’s one thing that folks who care about the environment and/or budget agree on, it’s that home appliances always seem to tire out before you want them to.

For example, if you’ve got a broken washing machine, not only is buying a brand new one expensive, but over 50% of a washing machine’s ecological footprint comes from producing it and delivering it to your door. In fact, according to the repair advocate group iFixit.org, you can actually be a lot better off running a machine that’s a total electricity and water hog than shopping for a new one.

You can blame the machines’ fragility on the manufacturers or on the increasingly complicated technology running our appliances today – after all, a smart washing machine requires a computer to be able to start a load of laundry at a command from your smartphone. But all in all, the result is pretty much the same: a dent in your wallet and another piece of scrap metal languishing in a landfill somewhere.

What’s worse, according to iFixit, is that companies don’t exactly make it cheap or easy for consumers to carry out a washing machine repair – which makes sense, as each new machine sold is a bump in their bottom line.

But before you throw in the towel, so to speak, you should know that if you find yourself Googling ‘washing machine repair near me,’ you’ve got options.

Sometimes, the DIY struggle is real.

While it’s technically possible to obtain the necessary spare parts to perform your own washing machine repair, if you’re even able to find them they are often prohibitively expensive – in fact, a replacement piece can cost as much or more as an entire new machine. The above iFixit spokesman found the part he needed to fix his washing machine for about $550 – and, in comparison, a new washing machine would have cost just over $1,000.

But having the part in hand is only half the battle – installing it usually takes some pretty specific know-how, and it’s up to the manufacturer to decide whether or not they want to give out that information.

An undercover experiment performed by the BBC found that the vast majority of the 12 companies they asked wouldn’t provide any instructions or manuals to a caller asking for help. So, what can you do instead?
