Frequently Asked Questions
How much does washing machine repair cost?
Washing machine repair can cost anywhere from $51 to $350 or more, depending on the problem. The more complicated the repair, the more expensive it’s likely to be. However, a simple fix that doesn’t require a repair technician to completely disassemble the machine will likely be on the lower end of the expense spectrum.
How much does dryer repair cost?
Dryer repairs can cost anywhere from $100 to $430 more. Again, the repair costs depend on the issue with your dryer, and how complicated the repair will be.
Is it worth it to repair dryer?
It’s worth fixing your dryer if the cost of repairing the unit is significantly less than the cost of replacing it. You must consider the expense of the repair and weigh it against the cost of a replacement. If your unit is over 10 years old, you will likely need to replace it, since the cost of repairing it will likely be higher than if it was a newer model.
Residential and Commercial Laundry Room Repairs
There are many signs that your washing machine needs repair, all of which Mr. Appliance of Washington Township can fix:
- It refuses to turn on – Faulty wires, switches, or electrical circuits can cause appliances to not turn on.
- It’s leaking – A common problem that comes from damaged pipes or broken components, such as pumps.
- It’s rotating slower than usual – Can be due to worn out components or defective circuitry.
When a washing machine breaks, not washing clothes is the least of your worries—a bigger concern is the appliance potentially ruining your clothes. So don’t wait to call a repair technician!
Like washing machines, there are common signs that your dryer needs repair:
- The inside of the appliance isn’t spinning.
- The appliance isn’t producing heat or is producing too much heat.
- You hear sounds that you wouldn’t normally hear, such as grinding or popping.
- The dryer starts working and then stops before the cycle completes.
We can also assess washer and dryer appliances in commercial buildings. A broken appliance in the shared laundry room of an apartment building, for example, could create a huge problem if residents need to wash their clothes and cannot. Or, if housekeeping at a hotel needs to wash bed sheets and experience a broken appliance, any customers inconvenienced by the event will leave negative reviews. Don’t lose customers.

Dryer Vent Cleaning
Cleaning is the next priority following repair. When a washer and dryer are properly cleaned and maintained, they are less likely to break. Vents are especially tricky because they are located at the back of the dryer and run into the wall. However, it is imperative to perform maintenance and cleaning on dryer vents for safety and quality. Allowing us to clean your dryer vents will ensure the appliance works more efficiently, reducing fire risk and high electric bills.
