Your household appliances are essential to your life. You rely on them to prepare meals, preserve food, heat water, and launder your clothes. Appliances make life easier. When a key appliance such as your stove, oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, or washing machine stop working, it can throw you off. You will want to fix the problem as fast as possible. Instead of trying to repair your appliance yourself, here are reasons to call in an expert for appliance repair.
Appliances have multiple moving parts and are very complex. These features combined with electricity can make attempting a do-it-yourself repair very dangerous. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, large appliances resulted in 18% of all consumer electrocution deaths from 2010 to 2013. During that same time period, small appliances resulted in 12% of the reported electrocution deaths. The CPSC reports that a majority of the electrocution deaths from appliances occurred when people were trying to repair their appliances themselves. If you attempt appliance repair on your own, you could start a fire or suffer an electrical injury. A professional has the training and certification necessary to troubleshoot what is wrong and to fix your appliance in a safe manner. Read the rest of this entry »

For very difficult-to-remove lime or calcium deposits, consider cleaning with a commercial cleanser, such as CLR or Lime-Away. Read the rest of this entry »

If you would like to get the most from your washing machine and keep it in great shape for years to come, you need to follow the right steps and have some tips in mind. Not using the right washing machine detergent can cost you money on your energy bill or even result in costly washing machine repair fees. This guide reviews the types of detergents from which you can choose and points you toward the correct path.
High-efficiency washing machines use less water than standard washing machines and require high-efficiency detergents. Standard laundry detergents produce a lot of bubbles and foam that require plenty of water to wash away. If you have a high-efficiency washing machine and use standard detergents, you won’t get enough water to clear the foam.

If your dishwasher is still under warranty or is less than 10 years old, it’s better to have it repaired rather than replaced. We also recommend extending the life of your dishwasher through professional maintenance and repair services. Even if your broken dishwasher is an older model, we can still repair it with quality parts and servicing so that it operates like new again. You’ll be pleased to know that these repairs usually cost much less than starting over again with a new dishwasher.
Cost-Effective Part Repair and Replacement
Angie’s List is one of the most trusted consumer review websites in the home improvement and trade service industries. The experts at the site recommend getting a professional to examine your disabled dishwasher to determine if your appliance’s problem is a simple fix that requires inexpensive parts or one that is more complicated. We frequently see older dishwashers that have worn seals and gaskets that we can fix quickly and inexpensively. We also specialize in dishwasher repair services and replacement of parts such as switches, drain pumps, valves, door latches and rack wheels. Today’s new dishwashers range in price from about $250 to up to $2,000. Budget dishwashers are serviceable, but they often come with cheaper, less durable parts and shorter warranties. They are also sure to have fewer bells and whistles than mid-range and high-end dishwashers. By repairing your old dishwasher (add repair cost link), you give yourself time to save for the appliance that you really want without compromising convenience or performance now.
