Do you have a sick appliance? Are you considering throwing it away and getting a new one because you don’t want to be bothered with having a repairman charge you or come look at it and then end up paying for both the service call and the repair – or worse yet, paying for the service call and discovering that the repair is just too expensive anyway? What a waste of dollars, right? Well, if you are like most folks, you need to pinch your pennies a little bit tighter now that we are officially in a recession, so appliance home repair might be the next big thing and might give you the chance to keep your appliances longer without having to fork out the big bucks to a repairman in the process.
Appliance home repair may seem like a really scary idea – especially if you are a woman who has absolutely no experience with fixing anything, but let me just tell you – if I can do it, you can, too. Here is my story:
One day, as I was about to do my umpteenth load of laundry, I lifted the lid of my washing machine and off popped this little spring from somewhere under the hood. I knew that was wrong of course – I mean no appliance I dishwasher repair los angeles supposed to have springs bouncing off of it – but I guess I was just hoping for the best. I shut the lid fully expecting the full washer to start washing my clothes. It didn’t happen. I had to empty the washer with a bucket and pitcher so the water wouldn’t stink, and I spent the next three months going to the Laundromat. Finally, one day, I got sick of it and sat down at my PC and typed in washer home repair. I really wasn’t ready to fix it myself, but the appliance home repair site gave me some much-needed info. I discovered what that spring was and why my washer wouldn’t do anything. I eventually called in a repairman, but I watched him carefully, and lo and behold, about four months later, my daughter had the same problem with her washing machine (same kind as mine). I went to the hardware store, got the part I needed, and about two hours later, my daughter was washing clothes again.
