What did we all do before washing machines? They are, by far, one of the most convenient home appliances. It’s not until things go wrong that we realise just how much we rely on the humble washing machine to keep our clothes, uniforms, and linen clean and stain-free.

If your washing machine is vibrating violently, leaking, not draining, or straight-up not working at all, there is good news. With a professional washing machine repair service, you won’t need to fork out the cash for a whole new appliance.

We asked Canberra’s locals to share their top picks for washing machine repair services – and the results are in. So, without further ado, let’s introduce the top three washing machine repair specialists in the region.

What makes a great washing machine repair service?

Want a little guidance on your search to the best washing machine repair service in Canberra? No worries. Keep a sharp eye out for the following features:

  • Technicians with years of experience. Practice makes perfect, right? If you want your washing machine repaired correctly, seek out a team of technicians with years of on-the-job experience.
  • Knowledge of a wide range of brands, makes, and models. Whatever kind of washing machine you need to be repaired, the best repairmen and women should be able to take care of it.
  • Effective, long-lasting repairs. There’s no point having your washing machine repaired if it’s only going to last a couple of months. The best in the business deliver long-lasting repairs that stand up to day-to-day use.
  • Reliable service. Appliance repair experts should show up on time and ready to work. They should also clean up after themselves.
  • Excellent pricing. Opting for a washing machine repair rather than a repurchase is a great way to save money. That is, as long as the technician charges a fair rate.

Answering your question: no.

If all it needs is the belt then it’s pretty bloody easy to do yourself. Do some googling for the right part then either buy it online or from Mayner & Cochrane (I have heard bad reports from them but I’ve bought multiple bits and pieces over the years and had no dramas). 30min of googling + 15 min installation, plus a ~$30 part. Heaps better than a $200 tradie.

It’s pretty easy to do it all your self. just allow a couple of hours.
The hardest part of it all is probably taking out the bearings as in some cases they are pressed.

avoid Mayner & Cochran, even though they were the only licensed LG repairer in canberra it to them 3 weeks to fix my machine, it just needed the filter cleaned no parts were needed to be ordered.

I have used him and found him very reasonable and the repairs have lasted.

I just replaced the belt on my front loader. Genuine belt was only $32 on ebay, and the job took about 15 minutes including google time to diagnose and get direction on replacing it. What sort of machine is it?
