Research Easy Fixes and Minimize Service Fees

The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Kait:

I recently fixed my Kenmore HE2 washing machine that was not draining correctly. I was about to call Sears, but looked at some online forums and found a simple solution (cleaning out a filter hidden behind the front panel) that I fixed in 15 minutes but would have cost at least $100 to call a repairman.

If you aren't a professional, I wouldn't suggest messing with anything electrical or mechanical. Just by removing a couple screws and some lint saved me tons, so research your problem before you call a technician.

How do you save money on repair costs?
