Back in the day, 3 meals were prepared and served every day – from scratch. Paper plates hadn’t been invented yet. Imagine that amount of dishes our grandmothers had to wash daily! The first automated dishwasher was invented in 1850, by a woman of course. It was definitely a time saver but it cost as much as a maid’s annual salary. Modern dishwashers not only wash but dry and sanitize too. They save your hands from the drudgery of constantly being immersed in water and drying detergents. When this vital machine breaks down, it can seem like the end of the world.
Repair vs. Purchasing New
Without beating around the bush, a new dishwasher can cost between $200 and $2000. These new machines come in an array of colors and finishes. They are designed to coordinate with your kitchen interior. The average labor cost for repairs is between $35 and $85, depending on the malfunction. Most parts cost $50 to $300. If you have a low end machine and the cost of the repairs is more or nearly equal to the cost to purchase new, we’d recommend buying a new model. We can point you in the right direction based on usage and lifestyle. Higher end machines are almost always worthy of repair.
What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
You put an entire load into the dishwasher and the dog-gone soap dispenser didn’t pop open. Not only have you wasted water, electricity and time, but the dishes are specked with food particles and dotted with hard water stains. Water from the dishwasher could back up into the kitchen sink. It can flood onto the kitchen floor. We have also remedied situations where the water didn’t drain properly. Dishwashers have been known to emanate a foul odor. The timer can malfunction the machine may not complete a full cycle. If you experience any of these scenarios, contact Towson Appliance Repair right away.
