When repairing washing machine and dishwashers, it is important that the water supply is turned off. One must ensure plenty of light in the area where the repair is undertaken. Heavy appliances should always be lifted with help from someone or moved with the help of trolleys which make movement of heavy items much easier. Trolleys are smooth and stable and delicate and heavy equipment can be placed on these to be transported to a spacious and lighted area where the repair can be undertaken and then transported back on the trolley to where the appliances must be reinstalled.

Safety rules while repairing any home appliances must be adhered to and when required, one should not hesitate to ask for professional help to assess the fault with appliances. Getting professional help ensures that the appliance gets repaired safely and correctly with no injury or damage done to the surroundings.
