Here’s to the moms and the caregivers! Another giveaway!

Here’s to the moms and the caregivers! Another giveaway!Every week, here at RepairClinic, we hear from moms and women who are caring for children, aging parents and disabled loved ones.

They write to us, leave us notes on our Facebook page and call us. They share moving stories of successful do-it-yourself appliance, outdoor power equipment and HVAC equipment repairs like this one: “RepairClinic is AMAZING !! I am sooo happy I found you ! After being married for 23 yrs to a Mr. Fix-it, who wouldn’t show me how to do anything because it “took too long, and would be faster to fix it than explain how to do it” I found myself a single mom of an 11 yr old girl. My 20+ yr old Speed Queen dryer quit on me, and I Googled repair advice. Having low confidence in my own ability to fix it, I contracted Sears repair to give me an estimate. I was quoted over $300. Not wanting to put that much into my 20+ yr old dryer, I went back to RepairClinic. I ordered the parts they suggested as most likely to be the problem, and my 11 year old and I put them in tonight ! For $18.30 the dryer I love is fixed !!!! The video was excellent !! I’m sold on y’all, and will recommend you to everyone who will listen ! ♥ Thanks so much !!”

So, here’s to the moms and caregivers and their DIY spirits! Thank you.

    I’ve been a satisfied customer for several years. The troubleshooting & videos help me fix it right the first time, every time! Recently I was going to fix my dryer by getting a single part, but your “kit” including the original part, plus a new belt, felt drum gaskets and new screws and brackets made for a superior fix– you need to feature the “kit” idea– now my dryer is better than new! Thanks so much

You saved me hundreds of dollars on a new machine!
