Tip & How-To about Washing Machines
If you are having problems with your appliance and need to buy parts, where do you go to find them and how is the best way to go about purchasing the parts that you need.
The best way that I have found to buy appliance parts online is to just do a search for “appliance parts”. When you do that you will have a large number of different websites come up from your search.
You will then need to have the model number of your appliance handy. The make will usually be identified by the model number so just the model is usually sufficient. Sometimes a model number will not work in one site, so try a different site.
When the parts page comes up you usually will have access to “exploded diagrams” which will help you to identify the part that you need. The pictures on some of the sites are better then others, so look around till you find what you need.
Once you know what you need, check out another site or two, or three. The price you get from one may be quite different from another. Also just because site A had the best price for one part, it may not have the best price for the next part you need. It seems that the different sites will use some parts to get you to buy and then soak you for another part.
Always compare prices with a number of sites to ensure the best pricing.
You can opt for faster shipping at most sites if you are willing to pay the extra costs. Most sites have warehouses in different parts of the country and can get the parts to you in a day or two, even with the regular shipping options.
