Washing machine repair costs are lower than the cost of buying a new machine. The average repair costs range from $51 to $350 for parts and labor depending on the type of machine you have.
Most contractors work by the hour. It is important to find the right person for your repair job. You should ask your friends and families for referrals of good contractors. Before choosing a contractor ask for several quotations from at least three companies to compare the price. Have a diagnostic done on the machine before the repairs start. This way a contractor will not slip in more "needed" repairs later.
