Reduce the cost of repairing a dishwasher by fixing it yourself. Minor repairs can be relatively easy to fix. If your dishwasher is leaking, it may only need a new seal. BottomLineSecrets.com states it is "often worth repairing a broken dishwasher if it is a mid-range to high-end model that is less than 10 years old."

Bottom Line

As of March 2009, the average cost to repair a dishwasher is "$100 or more," according to MLive.com. BottomLineSecrets.com warns it should cost no more than £195. If you repair a dishwasher yourself, it can be cheaper than hiring a handyman. If dishwasher repairs cost more than £195, it may be time for a new appliance.
