Sometimes people don’t have the time, energy, or skills to fix their broken household appliances. We totally understand that. The next concern is cost: how much will it cost to fix your broken appliance?

From HomeAdvisor: Appliance repair costs $172 on average, with a typical range of $105 and $240. This includes parts and $50 to $150 per hour for professional service.

Although this range includes most common appliance problems, there are several factors that may affect the total. If the unit is more than 10 years old, runs on natural gas or cost $5,000 when you bought it new, you’ll probably need more money to fix it. Here’s what you can expect to pay based on the machine and other considerations.

Appliance repairs range from $50 to $450 for most models. If you have a particularly old or expensive unit, you may pay more.

ApplianceTypical Range
Refrigerator/Freezer$100 – $450
Dryer$100 – $430
Washing Machine$100 – $350
Dishwasher$160 – $300
Oven/Range$100 – $430

How Much Does It Cost to Repair a Refrigerator or Freezer?

The cost to repair a refrigerator or freezer averages $200 to $330, depending on the parts that need replacing. A new thermostat might start as low as $100, while a new compressor can run up to $450.

If your refrigerator is buzzing or humming, or if it’s failing to keep your food cold, you might need repairs. Some common issues include:

  • Overheating fan, which makes strange noises.
  • Clicking sounds, indicating problems with the start relay.
  • Poor cooling, which may be a sign of a faulty compressor.
  • Ratting sounds.
  • Noises or faults with the icemaker.
  • Loud defroster motor.
  • Odd sounds from the freezer’s evaporator fan.

How Much Does It Cost to Repair a Dryer?

Dryer repair costs average $180, depending on the job and the type of appliance you have. You may need service if you notice these issues:

  • No heat.
  • Unusual drum movement.
  • Overheating machine that shuts off.
  • Bad electrical connections.

Gas Dryer Repair

Gas dryers run about $50 to $150 more than electric models, but cost less to power. Since these units have a different system, you may need to repair or replace these components:

  • Igniters.
  • Flame sensors.
  • Gas valves.
  • Thermal fuses.

Dryer Belt Replacement

Replacing a dryer belt costs about $200 if you hire a pro, or $10 to $20 for DIY. You’ll need to follow these steps:

  1. Remove the lint filter.
  2. Pop off the top of the machine.
  3. Remove the screws and detach the front.
  4. Remove the old belt.
  5. Vacuum out the dirt and debris around it.
