Academics and serious amateurs will note that when photos like this appear a new appliance has been purchased.

When a kitchen appliance breaks my first instinct is to call the repair person. My thinking is how can something so big, so substantial just be disposed of? 

After a few decades of throwing away money on repairs, I realize that when these appliances start breaking it means that they are nearing the end of their lifespan, even if I think the period of time is too short.

A repair usually means the appliance will only last one or two more years, and will cost about 25% of a new unit. 

I'm sure there are those who will argue that repairing things makes sense financially. And who knows? One could get lucky and get a long period of time out of the repaired unit. 

My mind is now that when these breakdowns occur, and the unit is 10-years old, I should just bite the bullet and purchase new. 


  1. It may seem counterintuitive to say that hiring a major appliance repair professional for dishwasher assistance is a budget-conscious move, but a repair pro can actually save you hundreds of dollars. Find out why you should call in an expert the next time you need a dishwasher repair in your kitchen.

  2. The best thing to do to avoid dryer repair and any other appliance repairs that could be done is to properly take care of the appliances and to know how to use them without having to tear them down unknowingly. How could you actually avoid wasting time to do any repair that is necessary for your broken appliance? Moreover, how can you avoid wasting money by not having to send your appliance to any shop for repair?
