The Pawn Nerd explains that not all pawn shops accept large appliances, such as washers and dryers. If a pawn shop accepts the set, it pays less than a third of the actual resell price. Depending on the size, condition and age of the washer and dryer, the amount a pawn shop offers varies. The pawn shop tests the units to ensure they work before offering any form of payment.Continue Reading
The units generally do not bring in much money; so in most cases, the pawn shop does not offer a loan on a washer and dryer. The main reason is because they are bulky, and they take up too much space in the pawn shop.
It is a good idea to call ahead before arranging to haul the washer and dryer down to the local pawn shop. Ask to speak to a manager, and verify that the shop is willing to accept them. Be honest and upfront with the pawn shop about the condition, age and size of the units for the best estimated value over the phone. Check for dings and scratches on both the washer and dryer, and clean the units out completely before taking them in to be evaluated.Learn more about Laundry
