Housewife MacGyver: Handyman Help for the Washer

Welcome back to part three of our Handyman Help mini series! Today: the washer...

Got a Leaky Washer?
If you notice that your washer is leaking, check the water hoses behind the washer and the connections to make sure they are not causing the problem:
The hoses and where they attach to the water. Check both ends of the hose to make sure this is not causing the leak.
 If it is the hoses leaking, turn off the water to the washer and purchase new hoses at your local hardware store. It is recommended that you replace your hoses every 5 years to avoid leaking.

About the author: Steve Newcomb has been an appliance repairman for 3 years now, in addition to attending school and raising a wonderful family with his wife, Meredin. He works on most brands of appliances (except Subzero, Wolf, or Viking), both in and out of warranty, for Utah clients from Springville to Salt Lake (and beyond, with an additional travel fee). Mention that you saw Steve here on just Lu when you call and receive $10 off your first service call (typically $75 for the original service call plus a return visit to install parts, as necessary). Steve also offers a 30-day work warranty. Contact Steve at (801)472-2515 to set up an appointment.

Yeah... as someone who has paid the $75 service call for the repairman to come spend ten seconds tightening the washer hoses... all I can say is AMEN! What's the worst (as in, I can't believe I just paid you for doing that because it's so easy I should have done it myself!) repair you've ever called a professional for?

This post is part of the Housewife MacGyver series on just Lu. Read more about Housewife MacGyver and see all the posts in the series here.
