Most areas have a $75 charge for diagnosis and estimate of labor & part cost. A same-day second appliance repair gets $30 deducted from the total estimate.
Also, if you just need a preventative maintenance checkup: choose Maintenance in the drop-down box after you enter your zip code. Most charges are $65-$85.
Other tips: If a technician is at your house working on a certain appliance you can ask him to do a "PM check" on a different appliance for $39.99 while he's there (if that appliance is in his field of repair)
