Answer: The answer varies widely depending on the situation. If you have chosen a quality appliance, we will usually recommend repair within the first 10-15 years if the repairs do not exceed 50% of the cost of replacement with a similar unit. The exceptions to this are that many modern appliances are not built with the same quality as some of these older ones, such as the Maytag Dependable Care laundry series or even the Whirlpool Direct-Drive washers. In these cases, we will usually recommend repair due to the quality of the product in comparison to the newer units regardless of the relative cost. The best opinion is always that of an honest, hands-on technician.
