If you checked your owner’s manual and/or Googled your problem and it’s not something simple like “clean the lint filter”, the answer is
Newer washing machines contain
- One pump, maybe two
- Multiple sensors
- Tub, bearings and other hard-to-replace mechanical components.
And they’re all expensive, and all require disassembly, which for a new washer, is generally quite involved.
This means that almost no matter what’s wrong with your washer, it’s going to cost you a service call plus 30 minutes or more of labor, plus the part.
If it needs a new pump, the cost will usually be $275 – $300. If it needs a board, it could easily be over $400, while an entire new washing machine can be purchased for $400-$600.
