Discovered a leak underneath my washer today. Does anyone have any good/reasonable referrals for washing machine repairs?

Thank you!

Get under there and see where its leaking

try finding help on line or a youtoobe vid

I have fixed washers dryers dishwashers, never paid for a pro

If you can work on your bike you can probably fix
a home appliance … its not that hard

Pretty certain this site was recommended on here before. I ordered a new latch mechanism for my parents dishwasher last winter. Ordered, delivered (to end of the road BC) and installed by myself in under a week total.

^^^Yes, open up the panel and take a peak to see if you can locate the source of the leak.

Look up the RepairClinic (or other) videos on YouTube to get an idea of the repair involved. Parts can be ordered online (PartsSelect, etc.) much cheaper than through brick and mortar parts shops.

Agree that appliances are mechanically as simple as bikes. If you have an older washer (20+ years) though, it might be worth it to replace with a newer one just for the capacity and efficiency.

Far simpler than bikes

OTOH actualy the older machines are usually simpler than the newer machines and worth repairing, parts are usually not that expensive and the parts guy at a parts store might be able to give you some words of wisdom

Appreciate the do-it-yourself advice - normally I'd have a go at it. But I've got family visiting and I'm in need of a quick fix.

Does anyone have any repair services to recommend?

leaking a bit or a gusher?

if its just leaking a bit put a pizza tray under it until they leave

Gf's DW was leaking so I took the panel off the bottm for a look-see under neath, ran it a bit to look for a leak wearing a head lamp

I never seen any leak and it never leaked again and that was maybe 1 year ago
