How Long Should Home Appliances Last?
How long should your appliance be lasting you? This question is crucial when trying to decide if you should repair or replace your broken down ho
Warranty is Crucial
Before you should even consider replacement, you need to look into the warranty that comes with your appliance purchase. If your product is still covered by the warranty, then you absolutely need to use this as your course of action (assuming the repair is a manufacturing defect). In many cases, your repair could be completely free!
Average Lifespans of Home Appliances
- Freezer – 11 years
- Dishwasher – 9 years
- Refrigerator – 13 years
- Washer – 10 years
- Dryer – 12 years
These ages, of course, can differ based on the make/model of your appliance. Another very important variable is how the appliance was taken care of for these years. An appliance that has been properly maintained throughout its lifetime will last much longer than one that has not, for example. Getting small issues that arise throughout the product’s lifetime diagnosed and repaired will actually reduce the chances of an untimely breakdown later on, so make sure to give your appliance a lot of TLC during their lifetime.
