Slashes are unorthodox in this context. I suggest Try something like the

<title>Washerhelp &rsaquo; Washing Machine Repair &laquo; Articles</title>

This seem to be the SEO-driven technique, which is embraced by some. Choose
the order of the headings sensibly and very, very carefully. It can make a
significant difference when it comes to your rankings. Usually, the better
the rank, the more helpful the bradcrumb (to the visitor).

Hope it helps and good luck,
