  • The repair person was so respectful of my home by wearing shoe covers so he wouldn't track wetness from snow through my house. He also wore a mask the whole time he was here.

Appliance repair in Elmhurst FAQ

The cost of appliance repair can change by age, brand, and type. In Elmhurst, average repair costs $196.69. Kenmore appliance repair costs, for example, are less than those of other manufacturers. The most prevalent machines that require servicing are fridges, dryers, dishwashers, and ranges.
A new washing machine can cost $2,000 or more. Washer repair in Elmhurst will cost around $184, so it is most likely cheaper to have a washer serviced. 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 create tiny fissures. If the water leaks by the cold water inlet or hot water outlet, it could be possible to repair 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 Elmhurst is $256.52, far cheaper than the price of a new refrigerator. A new unit 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 Elmhurst area.

Stand-alone refrigerators last for around 12 years, on the other hand built-in fridges are more expansive and last much longer. If you own a stand-alone model that's nearly 12 years old and has broken down, it might be worth replacing rather than fixing it. Kenmore is the most frequently serviced refrigerator brand in Abington.
If you live in Elmhurst, your refrigerator may be the likeliest to break down. We get more service calls for Kenmore refrigerators than any other type of appliance, followed by Whirlpool washing machines and General Electric dishwashers. The age of your appliance can help you determine if you should replace it or seek repairs.

It’s possible to exceed your appliance's expected lifespan with some simple actions. Taking care of your appliances helps keep them like new and can save you a lot of money. First, learn how to clean and care for all your appliances, whether it's a Kenmore refrigerator or Whirlpool washing machines. You can read through the manual, watch a tutorial, or get professional advice. When a problem does occur, it's smart to seek advice from a pro before throwing in the towel and buying a new appliance.

The decision to repair or replace an appliance in Elmhurst 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 refrigerators to washers to dishwashers—we’ll replace it.
A new appliance like a dryer can cost anywhere between $300 to nearly $2,000, while our average price for dryer repair in Elmhurst is $254.38, so it’s usually cheaper to have your dryer repaired.

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 Elmhurst'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 Elmhurst.
