The Dyer family opened their first appliance repair shop on a dusty stretch of road in Fort Worth in 1945, and nearly 70 years later they're still at work tinkering over the ovens, refrigerators, and washing machines families invest in for their homes. Over the years their repertoire has come to include modern appliances such as microwaves and garbage disposals, and they can work with many major brands, including Whirlpool, GE, and Sub-Zero. Perhaps not surprisingly, they also conduct an appliance-repair academy that equips students to become certified professional technicians.
