Refuses to come to downtown As someone else pointed out, the guy might be good, but he's too much of a star. He refused to come to my place in downtown because I didnt have a parking stop set aside for him. What is him? The King of England?

HomeStars - Replaced Garberator and Cooktop
He came over to replace our garberator and our stovetop. He was trustworthy. I asked him to come at an odd time because I had to work and he was very accommodating to our needs. Price was reasonable because I compared it with other companies.

HomeStars - Replace a cooktop
Andy replaced the cooktop on my kitchen and he helped to get the best price for the appliance. He was very accomodating with my schedule and he was able to work very early to have it ready.

Subject: Success and thank you (refrigeration)
Hi Andy,

Not only did you solve the problem when my refrigerator stopped working by replacing the electronic board, when the rattling noise occurred you came back and did everything you could think of to resolve that tricky problem. It was successful. The refrigerator is working perfectly and there is no disturbing noise. In 1999 you worked on my previous refrigerator and I am very pleased that your repair services are still available. Your commitment and skill make you an excellent resource for appliance and refrigeration repairs.

Many thanks,

We have a problem here on our washer and dryer combo.
First it made really loud sound when it tumble and then shortly after, drum won't spin just making buzzing sound.
Then, now it is not working at all. No sound, no movement.
We read good comments about your service on the internet, and we think you are the most reliable person to ask for repairing in vancouver.
So please contact us as soon as you get this message.

Hi Andy,

About a year ago you came in fixed my dryer unit because it was making
a bad noise. Now, the water level knob broke off my washer/dryer unit
a few days ago. Do you sell a replacement knob or know where I could
buy one from?

Picture is attached, the one on the right is fine but the one on the
left broke off, both knobs are the same.

Called Andy to service the washer. He was very professional. Diagnosis the problem step by step and didn't make any crazy promises. The diagnostic was correct and washer repaired. He cleaned everything and even wear booties for his shoes. Even shared a few tips to maintain our washers and dryer. Professional, knowledgeable and clean.

Yelp - Getting someone to come in, on time, without cancelling or not showing up, and charging me the price they promised, is SURPRISINGLY difficult when dealing with appliance repair.
After having two other companies in Vancouver scheduled to come see my dryer, and having both repairmen not bother to let me know they'd be late (or not come, in one case), I was ready to take my dryer apart myself. As a last-ditch effort, some Google-fu and a Better Business Bureau logo convinced me to phone Andy's Appliance and Refrigeration.
Andy showed up on time, with his son, and they charged a flat fee of $80 + HST (no matter how long it took to diagnose) to troubleshoot the issue.  He didn't pull punches and told me how much it would be to fix, and that alone made me happy.  He could've fixed it piece by piece, charging me bit by bit, but he was honest and clear.

We need more repairmen like these guys.

Hi Andy,

I just wanted to thank you for doing such a great job fixing our dishwasher. I know it was a bit tricky but it all works great now!


August 27,2011
Good service. Appointment was easy to make over the phone, he called the night before to confirm the morning appointment, and arrived promptly as scheduled. As others have mentioned, he wore protective boots over his shoes before entering my home. His diagnosis was honest and to the point. I wouldn't hesitate to call him again when required.

HomeStars - Fix our Garburator
We have to fix the garburator in our appartment and when I call them they came the next day, on time... they were fast and they told me that they could not save the old garburator because it was very damage. For me at least they tried to save me some money. Andy is very professional and reliable.

HomeStars - Fridge repair
My fridge worked intermittently for awhile - an intermittent symptom is always difficult to diagnose. I called Andy at Andy Appliance & he was able to come the same day. He identified the rather subtle problem and had the part to replace the fan right there. He also followed up with a phone call that evening & his price was fair. I commend him for his outstanding knowledge & experience as a appliance repairman.

Yelp - I called Andy to repair a washing machine that was not filling with water. He quoted me his prices over the phone and was able to come by the same day. He used shoe slippers and towels around the work area to protect my carpet from dirt. He quickly identified the problem, located the required part from the supplier, and provided an accurate estimate for the repair work. As promised, he returned the next day and fixed the problem. He took care to check that all was in working order before putting everything back in place. The amount was exactly as estimated with no surprises. Overall, I am quite happy with his work.

Yelp - My two year old Bosch washer had leak and caused major leak in our apartment. We called Andy's Appliance and he told us his price of $80 diagnostic fee, $90 (I think) per hour and parts (if needed). He charges up to two hours and anything over that is free. It was a family business type of business. He came with his son. Both we're very curtesy. They had to order the part, so they had to return to install it. The day the part was to come, they actually waited at the store for an hour for the delivery truck to come. He said if we had bought a domestic washer, we would probably gotten the part right away. I like their service. They were up front, called me on any updates and nice to deal with...I would call them again.

Subject: rates for dryer diagnostic and repair
Date: May 8, 2012 10:38:15 PM PDT (CA)

Hi Andy,

I was on the internet and read lots of great reviews for your company.
I was wondering what your charge would be to come and diagnose the problem with my Maytag dryer (model YMED9600SQ0, Serial MT4705604) and your hourly rate to repair?
Do you charge for estimates and is it deducted from the bill if I you do the repair?

A little more about my dryer:
- when I turn it on any cycle, the drum starts to tumble the cloths and instantly there is a loud ear piercing squealing (like metal on metal).
- it is 5 years old and I have not serviced it as it's been running fine until tonight when it started to make this unholy noise.
- hoping it will be a quick and relatively cheap fix, otherwise, I'd rather spend the money on another dryer

My number is 604-81.-17.. and live 1 block from Knight and East 57th in Vancouver.

Yelp - My experience was the same as the other people posting here, called Andy for our companies dishwasher, he showed up on time and ready to go. figured it out right away and fixed the dishwasher very quickly. I am a facilities manager and these are the kind of people i call back, i deal with lots of contractors, trades people etc. and it is always nice to work with a professional that produces the results you need. the cost was very acceptable and he was very courtious when he was here.

This review is solely based on the customer service communication. I ended up getting a fridge, a new one, therefore, I didn't need repair as it would cost me just as much with an estimate as it would a new one. Andy was awesome with the initial communication, however, he dodged the estimate question which kinda made me go another route.

I was referred by some friends, Kev & Brent, who said you were excellent. I have a dryer (as part of a stackable washer/dryer set) that is acting up. It won't run a full cycle and has to be re-started to fully dry the load. It's in a condo I rent so we'll need to arrange a time that works for the tenant. I also think the washer may need the front rubber lining replaced.

Can you let me know your availability, say next week?

Sarah K.

Andy's Appliance & Refrigeration - Answer .......may need the front rubber lining replaced.

Keep open the door for circulate air to dry rubber seal will help prevent mold growth (Mould is a fungus...) and change grey color rubber seal to black color. Some Samsung front-load washing machine you cannot open the door for circulation the air because light is on when door is open.

Yelp - Andy actually answered the phone when I called to set up an appointment rather than an answering machine. He was friendly, prompt and ontime with a phone call the day before to confirm our appointment. He checked out our fridge and gave us a recommendation he also explained everything and gave us a quote for repairs. He told me the cost for his services up front. He is honest, professional and friendly.

Yelp - I had a mysterious problem with my clothes dryer and called Andy out of frustration. He was over in two hours and, determined that it was some problem with the electronic control board.

When he took off the panel, he realized that the board had become loose and fallen on the floor, which, he theorized,  caused the panel's  to continually touch the motor and short out.

Andy credited this to a fault in the original dryer, and was afraid it would no longer work because there were multiple wires. However, he spent the next couple of hours gluing and duct taping each wire, and told me to leave it for a day and try it. The next day it worked!

Very created solution that save me hundreds of dollars for a new one. And, better yet, he only charged me for the house call and one hour of work.

The man went above and beyond the call of duty. I don't think I've ever seen that in a repairman before. He could have said, oh, it's unfixable and you have to buy another one, but gave it a shot anyway, I think because he hated a problem that appeared to be unfixable.

You won't find a repairman like that very often.

Email - Washer and Dryer Inspection

Hi Andy,
Thank you for inspecting the washer and dryer yesterday at the above address.
What I need from you is a breakdown in writing as to the repairs required to both machines and the service costs.  I can then forward them onto the owners of the suite.  The owners do not live locally and I have to send them a breakdown of the work.
Please send as soon as you can so I can address this issue.

Best Regards,

Easily available; gave clear cost estimate information up front and charged as agreed (no surprise extra costs); clearly explained what the likely issues were and what he was checking (re noisy fans).  Andy was not able to fully fix my fridge noisy fan issues, but not for lack of trying - checked everything humanly available, and pinpointed the likely culprit.  Re another fan, when the initial repair attempts did not work, he (after asking) found a replacement (not easy with that ancient model), and tried that, i.e. he really goes the extra mile.  He also takes care to keep your place clean while he's working in messy areas, i.e. respectful of your house! For anything that he can't do, or can't do affordably, he clearly explains the likely costs, and will give some suggestions re who to contact in this area.  Definite professional; reliable.

Side comments: Andy is quite chatty. He's also a one-man show, so has take many phone calls while working, and presumably might occasionally be away on vacation etc.

Yelp - Living in downtown vancouver, often times you can never get repair people to show up on time, or give you an accurate quote, or just be honest with you about the problem. This was not the case with Andy.
Our dishwasher suddenly stopped working, so we gave Andy a call, and within two hours he was at our apartment (amazing!). It took him 20 minutes to assess the situation, and rather than just charge us an arm and a leg to repair the dishwasher, he was up front and said it would cost more to fix it than to buy a new one. He could have easily made a load of money, but honesty and customer service were more important.

I will absolutely be calling Andy for any further repairs.

Yelp - I just called Andy out of the blue based on Yelp reviews. He answered the phone right away, was just finishing a job and showed up about an hour later - right when he said he would. An hour and a half after that and my initial problem was solved. Actually, it never happened because the noise my dryer was making didn't show up, but he was very professional and looked at everything he could to ensure it wouldn't happen again, discovered a couple of potential problems in the making and cured those, and cleaned both washer and dryer carefully. He also showed me some things I could do myself if I had issues in the future. During this time he also looked at a second problem with a jammed stove drawer, and fixed it in about 10 minutes. And once again he showed me how to fix it myself in future. I would definitely call Andy again, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others. Thanks for your help, Andy!

Andy, is a professional, honest and capable repairman. Over the past few years, he troubleshooted and fixed a dishwasher, clothes dryer and installed a new bathroom exhaust fan.  Andy is very conscientious and laid out the different options.

I haven't compared his prices with others, but seems reasonable given he was able to fix all items at the first attempt with no further hassles.

This is a story about people who are good people and care about who they serve and what they do. It's not fiction. It's a true story.

I found Andy on Yelp at the same time my fridge started making a horrendous noise. I sent Andy an email and he replied the same day. (It was a Sunday) We chatted on Monday. Talking with him and his wife was really delightful. I told him about my fridge problem and about my dryer that has never really worked well. It's an LG and it's a P.O.S (another story, but don't buy one) We made an appointment for today at 9:00AM. Andy came by today, (on time - with his partner, who is also very lovely) He looked my dryer over with a fine tooth comb. He looked at my vents and cleaned everything out that might be causing a problem. He really was thorough and forthright. When the dryer was done, he took a look at the fridge. He looked at every possible problem (of course the thing would not make a noise for Andy, it was too tired cos it made noise all last night, lol) Since it didn't make noise he gave some good suggestion regarding the problem, did some tweaks and she has been quiet ever since. Andy took the numbers of both the fridge and dryer in case I need parts in the future. Today was a very good day. I met a really great guy, who is personable, works with dignity and is a pleasure to have in your home. I really recommend Andy.

Yelp - Washing machine
Had my washer die on me so found him on yelp and other sites with good reviews.  Prompt, professional, courteous and honest.  Explained the problem well and why it might be better off to buy a new one, turns out the part isn't available anyway. I won't hesitate to recommend him or use him again.

Email - Hi, I am hoping that you can help me. I have a Whirlpool refrigerator (Model E89FVHLVS01) that I bought in 2009. Recently, I've noticed problems with frost build up in the freezer section and now the fridge section is warm. I've tried adjusting the temperature settings, but there doesn't seem to be any change to the temperature in the fridge section. I'm not sure if this is a problem with the thermostat, the condenser or something else. In any case, I would appreciate, if I could set up an appointment (late in the day would be best) for you to investigate. My work number is 604-...-.... (8:30-4:30 pm) and my home number is 604-...-..... Thanks in advance. Linda A....

Hi Andy,

I got your message and I am happy to report that my refrigerator is working properly. The temperature is good and the motor turns on and off (versus running on all the time.) I checked the freezer and there is no frost build up on the outside of the vents. Thanks so much for all the good tips and the good service.

HomeStar - I inherited my refrigerator when I moved into my home 5 years ago. For the first couple of years, I had no issues with it. In the last couple of weeks though, I noticed that the refrigerator didn't seem to be as cold as it used to be and the motor seemed louder than usual so I called Andy's Appliance and Refrigeration to come and take a look at it. They gave me an estimate of how much it would be to repair it and were very honest in comparing the cost to repair versus the cost to replace.

Good Mornign Andy,
I don't know if you'd remember me, but my husband and I called you out to fix our fridge between Christmas and New Year.
Anyway I am contacting you again as our washing machine (Maytag) has begun to collect water. I have not used the machine in a few days and when I went to look at it last night, there was a pool of water in the tub.  I Googled it and it sounds like we may need a new valve.
Could you please let me know what you think it would cost and when you may be able to come out - 37.. West 8 Avenue.

Thank you,

March 16, 2013

Yelp - Andy"s is the best.He comes at the time he promises and phones if he can come earlier. He was fast and efficient. He trouble shot my refrigerator problem and fixed it in one and half hours. He charges $85 flat rate no mater how long it takes to fix the problem. His prices are very reasonable,better than most places.
I would recommend Andy's Appliances and Refrigeration to anybody. He even phoned me back the next day to see how the refrigerator was working.
He gives you a written guarantee.

HomeStars - Weak Attempt Dishwasher Repair
Might as well flushed my money down the toilet. Had no clue what he was doing. Brought his wife along for the repair who did not say anything to anyone (I am not making this up). Spent 90% of his time on the phone. Left without fixing it and told us it was "OK" to use the dishwasher with a broken water seal!

Company Response:
When I was in your father's house I called to a few stores but TIMER for this dishwasher is not more available. I'm a BBB member. You wrote complain to the Better Business Bureau but they said that my service was good. That is truth. So probably you are upset and then you wrote bad reviews on HomeStars and Yelp.

BBB found business made good faith effort to resolve complaint but customer not satisfied with business response (1 complaint)

March 30, 2013

Yelp - I was very hesitate to call a repair man but I made the best choice by calling Andy's appliance and refrigeration. My garbage disposal was only 4 years old and we were worried it won't be fixed. Andy phoned a day before to confirm our appointment, came on time, and was very professional. He spent 25 minutes trying to figure the problem and said we need a new garbage disposal. All though we didn't get our garbage disposal repaired, Andy was very honest and saved us a lot of money. He said that he could fix the garbage disposal, but in its condition and state he said it would not be worth the repair. Despite spending 25 minutes, he only charged us for a service call. He said if we decide to replace the garbage disposal he will come back without charging a service call. He is clean and professional.

HomeStars - I know Andy's company for a long time. He fixed my washing machine and refrigeration. Last week I called him because my stove was broken. Before he come to my house he called to remind our an appointment. He was on time. I am very happy from his work. I will call him next time. I really recommend his service because he is professional and friendly.

Yelp - Andy provides excellent service. We contacted him about our fridge and he was upfront about the cost of the service call to diagnose the problem.  He was very careful about his work right down to wearing shoe booties so as to not track dirt into our house.  Once the problem was diagnosed, he showed me the damaged part and explained it to me, gave me an estimate cost for the part and ordered it immediately.  Once the part was in, he called us to schedule installing it.  Each time, he always arrived on time and would give me a courtesy call to let me know he was on his way.  Our fridge is only 2 years old and no longer under manufacturers warranty; however we purchased it using our credit card that doubles the warranty.  In order to file a claim with our credit card, the invoice needed to contain the model # and serial #; however, his invoice originally did not include them.  We contacted Andy, and he returned to include these numbers on our copy and his copy of the invoice.  That is what I call customer service. This is the second time we used him.  The first time was to diagnose overheating of our tenant's oven.  He explained to us that the cost of repairing the oven would be about the same as buying a new oven of the same quality.  He was very honest about.  And sure enough, the replacement oven was close in price to his repair estimate.  The reason we contacted Andy in the first place was because he is a member of the BBB (Better Business Bureau).  I would certainly say that he lives up to the BBB's standard of practice.  I would definitely use him again.

Before to replace our wine cooler that no longer refrigerates, we wanted to know if it could be repaired so we contacted Andy who explained that he could come and make this assessment for us and he would let us know if it could be repaired and if it was worth the extra expenses. He came the very next morning with his wife and was flexible with our work schedule. He checked everything, explained everything that he did, and concluded to a gas leak which is not worth attempting to repair for this kind of cooler since the coil runs everywhere. He then provided us with good addresses where to buy a new one and where to dispose of the old one. We only paid for the minimum fee for the call, which he had explained before to come. They are a great team as Andy's wife knows all the tools inside-out and can hand him anything he needs while he works. Both of them are very friendly. I already recommended their company to my colleagues as I would trust Andy for any kind of appliance repairs. We had chosen Andy's company because of all the good reviews he has accumulated and it is obvious to me why he gets them!

HomeStars - Refrigerator repair
Our Frig stopped working and serveral stores I called said it was the compressor and we should buy a new appliance. I found Andy on the internet and he came over the next day and replaced a starter part beside the compressor. Problem fixed and the Frig is up and running. He was courteous, professional, and explained everything he did. He even called us twice afterwards to check how the Frig was working. I'd recommend him to anyone with an appliance problem. Have him check it before you pay big bucks for a replacement.

Yelp - It is not fair if You wrote a review which is not truth. The Better Business Bureau® is better because collaborates 3 ​​people - BBB, You and me.

Main Board Assembly - Part number WR55X10552 $179.99 ea.

Electronic Main Bord Assembly.

Service Call & Troubleshooting include (Travel time for part took me .45 minute) $85 + Labour $48 + Electronic Board $189.97 + Material miscellaneous $6.97 = $329.94 Tax $39.59 The Tax was 12%

My fridge broke down Dec 24/12 (completely stopped working) and so I didn't have many options for repair places being open that day. I used the reviews from yelp to help me decide.  So I write this review to help others make a decision.Andy came on time but wanted me to pay for his parking or he wouldn't show up. Again, I had no choices so I got him a free spot.
He was upfront and said I would have to replace the entire electrical board part to fix it and was upfront about the cost of the part at $190. After getting the part and installing it he also tacked on a $48 charge for my type of fridge (GE) so my total cost of repair was $369. 
The problem is that since he's replaced it, the fridge makes this horrible knocking noise every 4 hours or so for about 10-15seconds and the fan makes a slight squealing sound.  I called him back  within the warranty time frame and he said he couldn't hear the noise!! It literally wakes me up in the middle of the night every night because it sounds like a knock-knock-knocking on my door (thanks Edgar Allan Poe).  
This was so frustrating!  He refused to do anything and said he can't return the parts so too bad for me. Then he told me to call General Electric and have them send a technician because he said they do free estimates, and when they tell me the solution, he said to call him back instead and I can pay him to fix it.....again!  
Finally, as he was leaving, he asked me to give him 5 Stars on YELP and said they took down his other reviews because yelp found out he paid the people to put up the reviews.
I know nothing about refrigeration repairs or whether he really needed to fix the electrical board but I called GE and they said they would never replace the electrical board and at that point would only recommend buying a new fridge.  
I would say Andy's integrity is highly lacking.

HomeStars - Refrigerator (defrost problem)
Our refrigerator wasn't generating cold air so I called Andy and he was able to come to our house within 1.5 hours. He did an assessment which costs $85 with no time restriction showed that our coils were frozen over and blocked any cool air to enter into our fridge. There were also other parts that needed to be replaced. Not only did Andy help with fixing our fridge, he explained how to properly set our fridge and freezer properly and we got a thermometer from him which shows us exactly how cool our fridge is and what the recommended temperature should be. In addition he noticed our fridge was too close to the wall, so he helped us vacuum the dust from the back of the fridge and placed a pop can behind the fridge so that the fridge would avoid going too close to the wall. He also gave us a tip with our garborator without any charge. Andy's wife was there as well as she assists Andy with phone calls and payment. Andy even called us several hours after the repair to check up on us to make sure our fridge was at the ideal temperature. Talk about service! You pay for what you get...and Andy was well worth it especially when we needed service right away! Thanks Andy!

Yelp - Appointment
Disappointed with the communication (can't vouch for the service, as I didn't get to try it). Booked a washing machine service appt for 9 a.m. Friday on Monday.  Waited all week.  On Friday morning found 4 voicemails on my cell, 2 saying "please call me back to confirm" and 2 saying "I'm taking another customer since I didn't hear from you."  In fairness, the 2 asking me to confirm were apparently left Thursday.  I have some sort of lag time on my cell (it's a stupid phone, not a smart one) so sometimes messages don't come in right away.  I understand why a small businessperson would want to confirm before showing up for an appointment - totally get it.  But TELL people that you're going to want to confirm.  If I'd known I'd need to talk to him again in order for him to show up, I'd have given him my home number as well.  I'm leaving this review as instructive feedback for his business and so future customers can check that a confirmation call is required or else he may not show up.

Fridge died and I feared the worse, thought I was looking at a replacement. Andy came over at agreed time, diagnosed the issue as a stater relay for the compressor, and made the repair. Then also showed me some of the reasons the relay failed and how to maintain my fridge going forward. Excellent service, and will call him again the next time an appliance needs repair. Very happy not to be fridge shopping this weekend.

Yelp - GE fridge
I emailed and called Andy to try and get help with a broken GE fridge over the weekend. He responded in a timely manner to my email. However when we spoke on the phone he was outright gruff and rude. After saying that he was over booked for today and agreeing that tomorrow was fine he asked me if I had visitor parking, which I don't, and then simply refused to come because "once he got a ticket". If this guy can't manage his own parking I don't want him touching my fridge.

Yelp - Clothes Washer Front Loading - replaced pump - Whirlpool. (Model GHW9200LQ)
Our clothes washer broke down on the Sunday before Family Day.  I e-mailed Andy Sunday evening and asked if the problem we were having was something he could take care of.  He called me right away and told me that he thought it was but would have to make a house call to be sure.  We setup an appointment for between 9:00 & 9:30 AM on Wednesday morning.  He called me Tuesday evening to confirm the appointment and he and his wife showed up at 9:10 AM on Wednesday as promised.  Within half an hour he determinied what the problem was and located a source of the required part.  He left to get the part and was back within 3/4 of an hour and immediately started removing the failed part and then installed the replacement.  By 11:00 AM our washing machine was back working as good as new.  Andy and his wife were very courteous and extremely neet and tidy.  They wore booties in our house and had a wet vacuum cleaner going wherever water was likely to leak.  The final invoice was very fair - he didn't even charge to go get the part because he said there were parts for other customers he would pick up while he was getting ours

We were very impressed with the service we received from Andy and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Subject: Recommendations for where to buy a used washer/dryer stacked pair (top loading).

Hi Andy,
You came to our apartment today to look at our front-loading washer and you recommended that we buy a new one. You said that 24" was probably best for the small space, and we also decided to buy a washer/dryer stacked pair (top loading this time). You also gave us recommendations for where to buy a new pair, thanks!
I was also wondering if you could send us some recommendations of where we could find a used washer/dryer pair? My mom is interested in looking at them just in case we can find a good one at good price.

Many thanks,

I saw a card on our building notice board for Andy's Appliances just as I started having problems with my fridge of only 3 years. I called Andy and to my surprise he was able to fit me in on the same day. He came over, found the problems right away and fixed it all under 3 hours. The problems are now gone and the fridge is as good as new. What I really appreciated was that he took the time to contact me the next day as a follow up to make sure everything was working well. You would never get that kind of service from a big store or repair company. I would refer him without hesitation.

Wonderful, timely, and honest service! Our fifty year old fridge was making louder than normal sounds via the motor. I called our usual repair center and received terrible customer service over the phone and was asked to call back on a few weeks. Dis-satisfied I decided to look up another service on the BBB Site and found "Andy's Appliance and Refrigeration"mobile service. Andy answered my call right away and booked a home visit next morning to have a look at our antique "Kelvinator" refrigerator and he fixed the problem right away which was a relief. He went the extra mile to explain and show me how to prevent further problems with simple remedies. Highly recommend his service to my friends and family and will call on him again should we need him! He has a new loyal customer! Thanks Andy, much appreciated, Katharine and Brad.

Andy gave us really good advice. He told us not to spend hundreds of dollars on repairs to fix our very old washer dyer combo because often times you can't find the parts for these machines. Andy also gave us some good information on the best type of new washer dryer combo to purchase. I appreciated how thorough he was. You can tell he cares about his work. He made sure we knew to purchase stainless steel braided hoses for the new washer and talked to us about the differences between font load and top load washers. I think we will go with a top load.

Hi Andy,

Sorry if you also receive this via the Homestars site (I tried to do a quote request from their site, and it didn't appear to be sent).
In the last two weeks, our Samsung Washing machine has started turning off mid-way through a cycle - it is 6 years old, model WF203ANS/XAC, if we turn it off and leave it for 10 minutes or so, we can sturn it on and start a cycle from the beginning again and it works okay, but we obviously don't want to continue doing this. You repaired our fridge a few years ago, and did a great job.

We are looking for an estimate to determine if it is worth repairing or if we should replace. Error message just says "ERR".
Wondering when you would be able to come out and provide an estimate.

thanks - Judie & Peter

Yelp - Both my dishwasher and clothes washer started leaking within a couple of weeks of each other. They were 17 years old, but I figured if it was possible to save either with a repair, then it would be worth having it checked out before buying new ones.  Andy came in with a woman to assist him (that I think was his wife) and they were both very nice.  He explained things clearly, and why it would cost more to do the repairs than to buy new.  He even had the parts in his truck and could have just charged me for the repairs for the dishwasher, but was upfront and recommended replacement.  They even left me information for stores that could give me a good deal, and very important information about which types of dishwashers to look at because of the copper piping that I had in place.  They made sure I had the model numbers so that it would be easy to get the right replacement type. I asked about whether he does installation and he was so honest, he told me that I should ask the store first because they would likely be able to give me a good price for installation since I would be buying the appliances from them, but gave me detailed info on what he would charge if the store didn't have that.  He was quick and clearly extremely knowledgeable.  I wanted to write a Yelp review because some of the other reviews had me worrying beforehand, and my experience while he was here was great. He did not charge me extra for diagnosing two appliances which was nice (I think he has a flat rate of about $89.25, $85 before tax, at the time of writing). To be honest, I thought he was a bit hard to understand on our first phone call and was still a bit nervous about the whole thing, but everything turned out great, and he was extremely clear and fair.  They found street parking and paid for it themselves and there were no unexpected costs (just the flat rate he told me ahead of time on the phone).  They take cheque or cash but not credit card.  By the way, I tried emailing two other appliance repair people through their websites and even left a voicemail with one, and none of those other ones even bothered to return my messages. I also emailed a salesperson for info and didn't get an answer.  That was surprising to me, so it was good to finally get a response.

4. Robotism. Do not treat the person as a client. They are unique, and expects
to be treated as an individual.
5. The brush-of. The classic brush-offs are “That is not my department” and
“There is nothing I can do”
6. The rule book. “Do not become the rule book!” “Do not be someone who
looks at the policies to find out what you can do. Be someone who looks at the
policies to find out what can not be done and then finds a way to do It”
7. The run-around. Whenever possible, find the answers yourself, rather
than sending customers with problems to someone else. If you must do so, give
them your full name so they have a reference point to which they can return.

Thank you to all my clients who really appreciate my service.
