Best Ways to Handle Broken Appliances

When major household appliances break, should you repair or replace them?

The answer depends on which appliance

Many refrigerator repairs are easy and affordable, especially if the problem is a bad motor or electronic controls.

Dishwashers are usually simple to repair, but issues with their door seal or tub often prompt a full replacement.

Unless water heaters are failing because of a part thats easy to replace, its almost never a good idea to repair them.

Washing machines with water leaks or broken belts are simple to repair, but a faulty clothes dryer might be a fire hazard worth replacing.

When in doubt, consult the manufacturer or a service professional.
