We keep appliances working properly during the heat of summer and cold of winter.

During the summer and winter break, you will have to keep an eye on your frequently used appliances, with children spending more time at home and college students coming home from University Of Akron Main Campus and other schools.

Whether you're grabbing a cool treat from the fridge after a fun day at Natural Resources Department or you are laundering all the towels and clothes from a camping weekend, your appliances have their work out for them.

While it's vital to keep all of your appliances running smoothly, some are more susceptible than others. Summer and winter temperatures can cause additional strain on the appliances -- even 51-degree springs and 57-degree falls may be too much for them.

Appliance repair in Akron FAQ

Appliance repair costs vary by the type and brand of appliance. The average cost for our appliance repair services in Akron is $153.44.
A new washing machine can cost $2,000 or more. Washer repair in Akron will cost around $184, so it is usually to your economic benefit to have a washer repaired. Kenmore appliances are the most frequent repairs in Abingdon, followed by Frigidaire, Samsung, and LG.
Leaks are the most common problems with water heaters. As your water heater gets older, water starts to corrode the tank and can cause small fissures. If the water is leaking by the cold water inlet or hot water outlet, you may be able to stop the leak by simply using a pipe wrench and tightening the couplings. Kenmore water heaters are the most repaired in the Abingdon area, with new water heaters typically costing between $1,000 to $3,000.
The average cost for refrigerator repair in Akron is $260.59, far cheaper than the price of a new refrigerator. A new appliance costs on average between $1,000 and $2,000. One thing to also keep in mind is that Kenmore refrigerators are the most common brand serviced in the Akron area.

Stand-alone refrigerators function best for about 12 years, while built-in fridges are more expansive and last much longer. If you own a stand-alone model that's nearly 12 years old and needs attention, it might be worth getting a replacement rather than fixing it. Kenmore is the most frequently serviced refrigerator brand in Abington.
If you live in Akron, your dryer may be the likeliest to break down. We get more service calls for Whirlpool dryers than any other type of appliance, followed by General Electric water heaters and Frigidaire dishwashers. The age of your appliance can help you determine if you should replace it or seek repairs.

From Whirlpool fridges to General Electric water heaters, a few easy actions can help extend the lifespan of your appliance. Whether your appliance is new or you've had it for a while, read through the manual, watch a tutorial, or get professional advice to know how to best clean each appliance. It's also smart to keep track of when to repair rather than replace. Don't assume your breaking down appliance is past saving. Save yourself the expense of a brand-new appliance by properly cleaning and caring for your appliances.

The decision to repair or replace an appliance in Akron is made easier with the right coverage. For American Home Shield® members, a home service plan can cover appliances no matter their age—no maintenance records or home inspections required. And if we can’t repair a covered item—from fridges to water heaters to dishwashers—we’ll replace it.
The average price for us to repair in Akron is $192.92. Compared to paying between $300 and nearly $2,000 for a new dryer, repair is significantly cheaper.

You may find it easy to diagnose and fix your dryer on your own. A dryer might malfunction for multiple reasons, so finding the right source and area is an important first step. Dryers can experience problems from not stopping or starting to overheating or taking too long to complete a cycle. For dryer repair beyond what you want to attempt, many repair pros in Akron's are ready for the job.

It's easier to locate the problem if you understand the basics: Most dryers run on a motor that uses pulleys and belts turn the drum. Air that's gas- or electric-heated is pushed through the drum. Timed thermostats control heat and speed. Many if not most dryers also have a restart button that can get things running if the issue is not part of the motor, switches, or electrical system. If you are having trouble diagnosing the issue, it may be time to contact a dryer repair professional in Akron.
