When your dryer gets old and stops working efficiently this is typically when you look to get a replacement as the problem can most likely not be fixed. The only issue with a replacement is that there are no guarantees it will work efficiently and it will cost more money at the time.
If you are fortunate enough to have a dryer that breaks down during its warranty period, you will need to make the decision whether to repair or replace. To make this decision some things must be taken into consideration.
Age of appliance
If your dryer has been running for about 12 years or more, it may be time to consider a replacement. There are many things that can happen to your dryer, some problems worse than others meaning that not every dryer problem can be repaired. If it is a newer dryer you should be considering a repair as the dryer should run properly for years to come when the repair is complete.
Cost of appliance repair
With a warranty on your repair this could be a much more efficient option as opposed to replacing the entire dryer. The cost of your dryer repair will heavily rely on what the situation is and sometimes you can even diagnose the issue on your own.
