The cost to repair home appliances can quickly tally. Not only is there stress to fix the appliance, we also rely on these appliances for our family’s daily needs. It’s important to have a plan in place for when appliance breakdowns occur to give your household peace of mind.

Typical Appliance Repair Costs

The cost to repair an appliance greatly depends on the diagnosed issue. Additional costs are incurred to hire a technician, purchase parts, and to bring the technician back to your property to complete the repair if needed.

If your appliance is under five years old, repairs are more often possible compared to an older and more heavily used appliance that may need to be replaced. Rather than wait for an appliance to fail and decide if it’s time to repair or replace, Select Home Warranty covers repair and replacement costs, no matter the age of the appliance, so long as the homeowner has obtained a record of repairs pre-dating the home warranty contract. The homeowner is able to easily place a claim with Select Home Warranty and only required to pay a small day-of service fee to the technician.

For a look into the costs expected to repair or replace top appliances, take a look at the most common ranges below.

Average Oven Repair Cost

  • Oven repair costs often range between $100 and $220.
  • Oven replacement costs can range between $350 and $15,000 with additional labor charges to install.

Common issues with ovens include low temperature and ranges that no longer turn on. Electrical ovens may have writing issues while gas ovens may have faulty controls.

Average Washing Machine Repair Cost

  • Washing machine repair costs often range between $50 and $350.
  • Washing machine replacement costs can range between $300 and $1,500 with additional labor charges to install.

Washing machine problems can occur for a wide variety of reasons. A leaking washing machine is the biggest red flag to watch for, followed by excessive noise. It’s important to catch these issues early.

Average Dryer Repair Cost

  • Dryer repair costs often range between $100 and $400.
  • The cost to replace a dryer can range between $800 and $1,200 with additional labor charges to install.

One of the most common complaints when experiencing dryer issues is when clothes simply won’t dry. Clogged vents and lint screens are often the culprit, followed by bends in the air duct preventing air from escaping.

Average Refrigerator Repair Cost

  • Refrigerator repair costs often range between $200 and $1,000.
  • The cost to replace a refrigerator can range between $1,000 and $2,000 with additional labor charges to install.

Be sure to keep up with routine refrigerator maintenance. Refrigerators can show early signs of dysfunction, including hot coils, sweating onto the floor and broken ice makers. The seal around many refrigerator doors tends to fade with use and should be caught early.
