Always the question when any appliance breaks down, regardless if the appliance repair is a refrigerator, washer, dryer, washing machine, dishwasher or any other appliance breaking down.
How do you decide what is your best option? A lot of common sense comes into play, but some hints and tips are;

- How old is your appliance?
- How much are you willing to spend on a repair?
- Is there a good reliable appliance repair company nearby?

Before calling out an appliance repair technician, do a bit of homework , here are a few hints and tips;
- Is your appliance under warranty?
- What is your machines make and model?
- Approximately how old is your machine?
- What is the problem?
- Can the technician repair your make and model of machine?
- Does the technician carry spare parts for you make and model of machine? (This can save you time and money as if it is a normal breakdown he should have the parts required and not need a second call which could cost more)
- What are the callout charges?
- If given go ahead for the repair are callout charges taken off the cost?
- Can the technician arrive at a mutually agreed time?
The above list is the minimum that should be done before telephoning or emailing any appliance repair company, and should hold you in good stead to let you (and the technician) know what to expect.
The technician should arrive at the arranged time, possibly even telephoning to confirm he is on his way. He should be professional and courteous at all times, after repairing your appliance he should also leave the premises in the same state he found it when he arrived.
There is never a good time for an appliance to breakdown, but with some preperation as noted above there should be no huge surprises.
