A good appliance repair place?

wall of old dryersFred emails:

My dryer just died. Any suggestions for a good appliance repair place?

Anyone have a suggestion for Fred? Please share!

Update: Fred emails again:

Went with Bob's, as it was the only one with any web presence. $55 to diagnose, and they'll be here tomorrow, no extra charge. YaaaayOA

I don't know about repairs, but I know you can see about a rebate for upgrading to a newer, more energy-efficient model.

John Parkes is the man.

However, dryer repair is usually pretty easy DIY. If it's a broken belt, it's a 20-minute fix and a $15 part.

Joe Flis is great! He repairs all our appliances.

My husband and I have used Bob's Appliance Repair (518.439.0912) and they've always been reasonable!


I concur with Jen. Bob fixed our oven once, and he was fairly priced and showed up at the designated time. Recommended.

I second Bob's appliance repair. The guy knows what he's doing and prices are reasonable... I think.

I third Bob's (think he and son run around for jobs) . just comes over, 15 mins later the problem is fixed. I
don't think he's that cheap (both times that 15 mins. cost us a $100 service call--no parts for either) but whattya gonna do...he gets it done, same day, sometimes the same hour.

Cornwell Appliance on Central Ave. They're great people. http://www.cornwellappliance.com/

My daughter just started private swim lessons at Ciccotti Center in Colonie. She has only been to two but so far she loves it. They also seem to be flexible with scheduling for the private lessons - doesn't need to be at a set day and time each week.
