Price shouldn't be the only consideration when requesting service. This service section will tell you what options are available to try to help you decide what route to should take.
Our extensive 'Helpful Tips' section may help you avoid expensive repairs or even the need for service altogether. The 'Appliance Myths' section will help to dispel some of the myths your friends and family have told you about appliances, that are simply not true and may lead to unnecessary repairs.
If you're curious of the age of your major home appliance or need to find its true age to see if qualifies for a rebate on the purchase of a replacement, our 'Appliance Age Search' service may be able to help. You should keep in mind however that age alone is rarely justification for replacing an existing appliance. (see our The Purchase: When to replace? page for tips)
