Appliances are like cars. If you dont maintain them regularly, they eventually break down.”
To improve upon the numbers above, Granger says, you should vacuum your refrigerator coils, keep your dishwasher drain and filter clear, clean your oven regularly, remove lint from your dryer vent (not just the trap) and never overload your washing machine.But even if you follow all of this good advice, sooner or later one of your appliances is going to stop working — probably the same day your mother-in-law visits. And then you’ll have to make the nerve-racking decision of whether to repair or replace it. If it won’t spin, the repair involves dismantling much of the machine, which is costly.
Have a different problem? Here’s a rule of thumb that can lessen the pain: If the repair will cost more than 50 percent of the price of replacing the appliance, you should get a new one.
