Appliances Informative - Opinion on old versus new
Just my opinion I think you would be better off to repair your old appliance. Only the ones with the manual knobs that worked for years mostly trouble free. I have started repairing the older washers and dryers. I get from people geting new ones and sell them to people who don't have much money. Some I even get from the junkyard. Most of them I repair fairly cheap. I see more newer ones in the junk than older ones but I don't get them they are nothing but trouble. They mostly need transmissons and boards which are expensive. They made good products for years, what happened? Cheap plastic parts and electronic boards operating on low voltage which don't take much to burn out parts. I wouldn't buy a new appliance of any kind as long as I can find parts for the old ones.
Just my opinion.
