My client wants a price before I come out (wanting to avoid my ultra low $49 service charge I guess).

Anyway I'll be using the download of Model GLTF2940EE0 manual I found using wildcard (I assume it's the same) but don't have a blue book to price job so asking for help

 

door lock assembly costs $64.81  what would others charge for this repair?  What's blue book say?

 

control board costs $144.66  same questions--charge?  Blue book says?

 

Customer complaint is that washer stops when it gets to spin cycle. Sounds like door switch causes this issue (from reading forums) but I won't know until I run diagnostic mode on machine, but customer won't allow me to come out without a good idea of charges beforehand

 

Thanks in advance for your help, the more I do the more I learn and the info and advice here is incredible and I am so gratefull for it!

It's good to be able to pre-diagnose and complete a call on the first trip, but it may backfire with this type of customer.  Especially when it could be just a drain restriction.

Advise the customer you'll have to check the unit before rendering an estimate.

 

That's funny.  While typing this reply, I received a phone call from a customer wanting to know how much to repair an Affinty washer that won't spin.  I advised him of the service call charge and that we would have to check the unit first.  Small world.

Ultimately that's what I told him. He has to think about the $49 charge to diagnose and said he'll get back to me. Doubt I hear from him again but who knows.

 

I wonder if anyone has a bluebook they would sell me cheap (even if it's a couple yrs old) so I can price my jobs effectively??
