Description of service

The cost of the service was $103. It was not exactly hourly but I think the price was fair. There debris in the engine assembly.


Review of Service

The repair guy was very knowledgeable and explained at length the problem with my washer. My washing machines has a two-direction drive motor. These two-direction drive motors turn in one direction for one wash cycle, and goes the other direction for a different cycle. It seems according to the repair guy it is possible for the drive motor to work fine in one direction, while not working in the other direction. Even if your washer's drive motor works fine in one direction, you will have to replace the entire motor. We were lucky because he was able to free the second cycle and now it works fine. we were also very fortunate to deal with a repair service that was honest, they could have easily told us that repair was need that replaced the motor.


Tips

Shop around for different prices. Before I went with the local repair guy. I called several places. I called the public utility that said it would cost $85.00 for them to look at it before the cost of repair.

Also be sure you have extended warranties or "Worry Free" repair service of your appliances. However, I mistakenly did not have this washer covered. Since the repair was honest I'm about even in cost, my utility company charges about $5.00 a month to cover washer, about $60.00 a year. My store's price is $99.00 for four years , but some stores charge $99 a year . But money careful which warranty service you pick. But be sure to pick one.
