Should You Repair Your Appliance

Hello, I’m the owner of a service company that repairs appliance’s. I want the public to know that the new machines out their are not lasting as long as machines that were built 10 to 20 years ago. It does not matter what brand it is : kenmore, whirlpool, GE, Maytag, Viking, Bosch.

In my opinion the older machines were built like tanks!Before you buy a new machine keep in mind that almost anything you buy today will have a electronic control board in it and the more gadgets the refrigerator or washer has the more things that can go wrong with it. If your machine is in good condition and has been well maintained then you should think about repairing your appliance.

For those of you that I could not convince and your almost out the door to purchase a new appliance I have a couple of Tips for you.

First, do a litter home work, research the appliance your going to buy.Do a search online about the appliance you want to buy to see if customers are having a problem with it, and don’t just look a review pages find some blogs. I personally looked up a LG Dishwasher that had 3000 complaints on it.

Second, when your at the check out ready to pay for your new machine there going to want you to purchase a extended warranty on the appliance, If you don’t have a home warranty that covers your appliance’s and your spending a lot of money on the machine you should get the warranty. As I said, the new machines can have more than one control board and lighting and power serges can cause problems with these newer machines.

Third, I can say that I am happy with front load washers, they do save a lot of water, when a front load washer fills it only uses a few gallons of water compared to 10 gallons or more on a top load washer every time it fills.

Thank you.
