To repair or replace, that is the question. Here are some things to consider when weighing the decision to repair or replace your appliance:
Age. How old is the appliance? Every appliance has its life span. Nowadays, if an appliance is between 8 and 12 years, it is regarded as old and is probably not worth repairing.
Purchase Price. The higher the purchase price, the longer it is expected to last. Cheaper appliances, under $600-$800 will last between 8 and 12 years. Appliances over $1000 may last up to 20 years and are worth the cost of repair. Cheaper appliances are not worth costly repairs.
Consider the cost and hassle of getting rid of your old appliance.
Is your older appliance energy efficient? Newer models are more energy and water efficient. You will save on energy and water costs long-term with an energy efficient machine.
Are you satisfied with the overall performance of the appliance? Is it a cosmetic repair only?
What is the overall state of the appliance? Are there other parts nots functioning at optimal levels which could soon need repair or replacement?
