When to Repair
When to Replace
|Refrigerator||10-15 years||If it’s under 8 years old||If it’s older than 15 years or frequent repairs add up|
|Range/Oven||10-20 years||For minor issues or if it’s under 10 years old||If it’s older than 15 years or repair costs exceed 50% of the replacement cost|
|Washer||10-15 years||If it’s under 8 years old and repair cost is reasonable||If it’s older than 12-15 years, frequent repairs occur, or major components fail|
|Dryer||10-15 years||For minor issues or if it’s under 8 years old||If it’s older than 12-15 years, repair costs pile up, or significant problems arise|
|Dishwasher||8-12 years||For minor issues or if it’s under 8 years old||If it’s older than 12 years, requires multiple repairs, or operates inefficiently.|
