MAX Appliance Repair has always been a prominent name in the city when it comes to fast repairs. While they’re among the frontrunners in their league, they still lack in certain areas that you might want to look out for.

Let’s focus specifically on dryer repairs (although most of the things we’ll highlight apply to other services). For starters, they can repair all major dryer brands you can think of from Haier, LG, and Samsung to Whirlpool, Electrolux, and a lot more.

Plus, with their 15 years of experience, we can say they’re already experts in a wide range of models and brands.

In addition to this, they also advertise a same-day repair appointment, which is one of the major things we like. Unfortunately, there are certain days wherein you have to wait about 3 to 5 business days before you can get a schedule.

While that almost defeats the purpose of same-day repairs, their fast response is one of the most praised qualitie, for past clients. In most cases, the company was able to attend to the issues within a 2-hour timeframe (pretty fast, if you ask us).

They’re able to do this because their van is already packed with all the tools and common spare parts replaced. There’s essentially no need for clients to wait around as they go back and forth sourcing new materials.

As per service quality, the majority of the customers expressed satisfaction with the results and we have to agree. Through our surveys, we found that most of the dryers repaired within the past 2 years are still working as of writing.

On the flip side, positive outcomes aren’t exactly constant. There are still problems wherein the issues with the dryer remained, as other clients complained to us.

But if we put it on a scale, the positive feedback still wins over the negative ones. So, with that in mind, we’re confident in our assessment that they’re still one of the best.

Pros

  • 15 years in business
  • Up to 3 months warranty on most parts
  • Free service call on all repairs
  • Available daily for same-day repairs
  • Has readily available common spare parts on site
  • Fast response time for same-day repairs
  • Competitive repair fees

Cons

  • Inconsistent availability for same-day repairs
  • Minor issues with persisting dryer problems
  • Minor complaints on diagnostic fees

Customer Reviews

Wonderful experience 

I called for a leak coming from my washer and Zamir came the same day.  He is knowledgeable and a great worker.  I have never had my dryer cleaned and he also did that for me which was great as it is a fire hazard.  Nice experience and I will call him again if I have any other appliance issues. – Cyndi Hall

Prompt response

Called for a dryer repair. Received a prompt response, arranged a diagnostics visit. The technician, Alex G. was very punctual, professional and thorough. The dryer is working perfectly, and the price was very reasonable. Would recommend . – Pavlo Tverdokhlib

Appliance Experts isn’t the type of company that will immediately be on your radar. And while it does lack in exposure and certain areas, it has a lot of offerings that even big names can’t compete with.

In terms of the quality of service, everything was fairly smooth in our experience. Consultation over the phone was hassle-free and we didn’t have to wait long before someone picked up our call.

Speaking of calls, one of their strongest qualities is the fact that they’re open to emergency calls 24/7. This means no waiting in line and no appointment setups in case you need a dryer repair service ASAP.

In line with this, even their same-day service is a seamless experience in general, with their fast response. And of course, the actual performance of the repair also wins our respect because they haven’t failed a customer yet (both our survey and the perfect rating on Google Reviews told us that).

They come in prepared with all the potential spare parts you might need with a clear and transparent quote with no hidden charges. Not only do they honor their quote, but they also won’t leave your home until your dryer is fixed.

Overall, we’re happy with this company. Plus, they service almost every brand you can imagine, which is also one of the things we looked for.

The only thing that may concern you is their length of experience. They haven’t been in the business for as long as the others on our list, which may be an issue for you.

Other than that, the warranty terms are also unclear (at least, not readily available for casual assessments). Although so far, there hasn’t been any issues regarding this yet, so we’re holding onto that positive sign for now.

Pros

  • On call 24/7 for emergency services
  • Same-day service wit fast response
  • Brings spare parts in advance
  • Convenient consultation over the phone
  • Clear pricing with no hidden fees and no overcharging
  • Convenient payment methods available

Cons

  • Not a lot of experience yet as of writing
  • Unclear warranty terms on labor and parts

Customer Reviews

Fixed in a single visit

I want to thank you guys for coming out to fix my dryer last week. My dryer was making noise and I thought it might be done but no. Ron figured out what was wrong, replaced the broken parts and got my dryer working again. And they did it in a single visit. I was so happy. Highly recommended . – John Sam

Great job with all kinds of repair

Ben do a great job with all kinds of appliance repair.  I have used them now for washing machine repairs, my dryer when it was making noise, and also for oven repair.  They just know all there is to know about appliance repair – and they were all different brands.  Highly recommend – Stuart Romi

Star Appliance Repair combines many of the offerings we love in other repair shops. Although we have minor concerns in some areas, we still think they’re a pretty wholesome repair company.

Right off the bat, the shop gained our interest with its respectable length of experience. They’ve been in the business for 10 years, servicing customers with all major dryer brands you can imagine.

Working with them is also stress-free based on our experience and what past customers told us. It’s easy to book a phone consultation and takes only a few minutes to get a response.

Fortunately, they’re just as fast as they are on the phone when responding to customers. They offer same-day services and it takes about 2 to 4 hours before they arrive at your doorstep.

Although… this isn’t the case for every single customer they’ve worked with. There were instances wherein the technician is later than the scheduled hour (though to be fair, anywhere under 30 minutes of lateness is still forgivable, in our opinion).

But overall, it seems they work fast. They already have all the tools and potential spare parts that they might need in their van, so a single visit always does the job.

Finally, they have some of the best warranty terms for dryer repair parts and labor. We like that the warranty length starts at a minimum of 3 months and goes up to 12 months depending on the nature of service.

Pros

  • 3 to 12 months warranty on parts and labor
  • Same-day services with fast response
  • Easy and fast phone consultations
  • Competitive prices with repair coupons
  • Readily available spare parts

Cons

  • Minor instances of late arrival

Go Appliance Repair is one of the best when it comes to warranty and satisfactory services. Though they lag behind in terms of experience, the repair shop has a lot of strengths to make up for it.

Beginning with service quality, we’re happy to note that they have one of the easiest processes we’ve encountered. The booking process was easy and clients generally get a callback within 15 to 20 minutes.

If you ever need to make a call, their call center is open 24/7. This makes it highly convenient for clients looking for more flexible appointment booking schemes.

As per their response time, they’re fairly fast and they keep clients posted on their whereabouts. They just have shorter operating hours than most, which can be an issue for clients in an emergency.

Perhaps their best feature is their 1-year warranty that has no limits and zero excuses. This is one of the things we loved about them because they have the most flexible warranty terms on our list.

For those who are a bit conscious about replacement parts, we found that they only use original materials too, so that’s a plus for us. They also deal with many major brands so you can get factory certified parts for your exact model.

Lastly, if you want to take advantage of discounts, they offer $35 off services for new customers. It isn’t much in the long run but it’s a great starter if you just want to try them out.

Pros

  • 1-year warranty on factory certified parts
  • Call center open for 24/7
  • Call back within 15 – 20 minutes after booking
  • Original replacement parts available
  • Easy booking scheme for same-day repairs
  • $35 off for new customers

Cons

  • Little experience versus competition
  • Relatively less operating hours

Customer Reviews

This company is extremely reliable and service is great. Would absolutely recommend them to anyone. Quick service with fair price. The best part was that they were able to fix my dryer on the same day I called them, emergency service at their best. – Sasha Smetanin

Satisfactory services

I was very satisfied with the customer service and professionalism of Go Appliance Repair.

I highly recommend this company! – Anton Dolgov

Maydone Appliance Repair is packed with all the good things you’d typically look for in a repair shop. It’s true that it isn’t perfect, but it has many great things to offer that you might want to consider.

First, they have 24/7 customer care so you can contact them any time for booking or general inquiries. It’s not a unique feature but when coupled with everything else, it becomes exceptional.

Second, they accept emergency services on top of their same-day repairs. They’re also the best in terms of availability because they’re open 365 days in a year, including holidays.

Third, they offer 1-year warranty on service and parts – a pretty solid combination for guarantees. Not every shop offers this level of safety net so this is one of their best advantages.

Fourth, their fees tend to be pricey for more complex repairs but we appreciate the transparency. Plus, the service call and repair is free, which other companies usually charge for.

Finally, first-time customers can get $30 off their first repair. It’s already a great help, especially if your total exceeds your budget.

The only downside is that due to their high demand, it can be difficult to book their services. Sometimes the same-day booking turns into next-day services but it isn’t a common case as far as we’ve seen.

Pros

  • 24/7 customer care
  • Offers emergency services
  • Open 365 days a year including holidays
  • 1-year warranty on service and parts
  • Authentic parts
  • $30 off for first-time customers

Cons

  • Minor issues on booking and service schedules
  • Certain repairs can be pricey

Customer Reviews

Very efficient technicians

Very efficient and expert people work as technicians .
