Dishwasher Repair (GTA or Vaughan)

Anyone know of any reliable appliance repair person/company that can fix dishwashers?

I would prefer one that doesn't charge a looking fee to assess the problem first.

Thks

Would you spend 30 minutes to drive to someone’s house and 30 minutes to drive back and pay the gas for free?

How much is an hour of your time worth?

Repair men will charge you to look at it because they spent money to get there. Especially if you don’t like his quote and decide to go with someone else.

If you give him the job, I’m sure they will waive the consult fee.

If they exist, they will eventually start charging. It is unreasonable to expect them to pay expenses to asses the problem with your dishwasher without getting the job to repair it.

Good luck.

FYI. It will be easier to get a reply if you indicate what part of Toronto you’re located at.

I just called a local repair shop and I was quoted $77 for them to come out and inspect my dishwasher. I don't have much experience with this stuff but that's about what I expected for their travel and time.

Yes. The fee is waived if you choose to go ahead with the repair.

Nearly 100% of reputable repairmen will charge a fee to assess (if you choose not to go ahead with the repairs). Like others said, time and money. Also, why would a repairman tell you what the problem is for free, then you can Google how to fix it yourself? OP is misguided in her claims that some repairmen assess for free. Some people might advertise as "free" , but only because it's free if you go ahead with the repair.

So I'm going to come out, spend an hour inspecting your dishwasher, and then not charge you an inspection fee? Yeah the inspection fee won't be charged if you go ahead with their repair as @iEyeCaptain said. Otherwise there will always be an inspection fee.

I did that twice, furnace and washer. I felt very bad when the repairmen did not accept money (5 minutes). I always offer at least gas money for their time. Some people are genuinely nice but they are making money for a living.
