We charge $75 for a service call, which is waived in case of repairs. Repair costs depend on the parts involved and the workhours needed to fix the issue.
If your appliance is still under warranty, they will usually repair or replace it with minimal to no cost. However, some issues don’t fall under warranty. Contact the appliance’s manufacturer for more information.
Most new appliances have a unique smell due to residues from the manufacturing process. It should go away on its own relatively shortly with regular use.
Appliances that come into contact or use water to operate can develop mould or mildew if they are not vented or emptied properly. Regular maintenance should keep humidity low enough to deter mould growth. Ideal Fix can troubleshoot the exact cause of the smell, fix it, and provide guidelines to prevent it from reoccurring.
Consider how much a repair is going to cost versus buying a brand-new appliance. When purchasing an appliance, you will get a warranty that protects from breaks or mishaps for a certain period, which can save money on repair costs. Additionally, new appliances generally use less electricity or water to run and are more environmentally friendly.
Your clothes washer provides you with regular support. Maintenance ensures you return the favor. Appliance maintenance involves periodic repairs to prevent significant breakdowns or malfunctions later.
Proactive maintenance is a cost-effective way to keep your washer running smoothly. The regular checkups also help you catch problems in their infancy. Early diagnosis lets you resolve an issue before it becomes complicated and costly.
Every washer has a series of hoses, pumps, and tubs that facilitate water to clean clothes. The washer can leak when one of those parts breaks or loosens. If you notice water pooling on the floor around your unit, shut off the water to the appliance.
The most common solution for a leak is to replace a leaky supply hose, internal hose, or pump. Some units may have a worn tub fitting, which creates a weak seal when retaining water. An Ideal Fix appliance repair specialist can diagnose the specific issue and fix it in no time.
Our appliance repair team takes the time to talk with you to understand your needs and issues. We then perform a thorough examination of the appliance and develop a personalized repair solution. Once our specialists have their plan sorted out, they can fix your washer the same day.
Ideal Fix is here to repair washers when they don’t perform as they should. We offer efficient and affordable repair services for everything from minor leaks to electrical malfunctions. Our goal is to provide washing machine repair on time and budget.
A washing machine that repeats cycles either doesn’t clean clothes or takes too long to finish cleaning, both of which provide suboptimal results. While there are a few possible reasons behind why this happens, it’s invariably due to a damaged or worn-out control board. Contact Ideal Fix and we’ll send a technician with a replacement board to get rid of the problem.
If the washing machine takes more time to pull water in, there could be a few reasons why. The most likely causes are a punctured intake pipe or a malfunctioning valve. Ideal Fix can replace leaking washing machine water pipes to remedy these problems and perform a more thorough diagnosis if needed.
If lights in the rooms flicker when the machine changes cycles, it could be a sign of a malfunctioning circuit or putting too much stress on the electrical grid. An Ideal Fix technician can take a closer look and diagnose the fault. We will determine if the problem can be repaired or if the machine needs to be replaced.
Smaller objects like pins, buttons, or loose coins can get stuck in the drum and damage the machine. Contact us to remove these items and repair the drum seals if necessary.
There can be several possible causes behind a washing machine making too much noise, and each requires a detailed examination. Contact Ideal Fix and schedule a washing machine repair to get to the bottom of this problem.
If the machine spins too fast during a cycle, it can damage certain fabrics and deteriorate its parts quicker. This is not normal behaviour, so contact us for assistance.
The most likely reason a washing machine doesn’t start up immediately and produces a humming noise is an issue with the water pump. Contact Ideal Fix to inspect the problem and replace the pump if needed.
