Do I need to replace my washing machine?

This is one of the great questions of our time. A dependable washing machine will last for many years, so it is understandable that you might not want to upgrade if yours still seems to be going strong. On the other hand, washing machine models have come a long way in the last ten years, and when you factor in various improvements in efficiency, you might actually be saving money by investing in a new one.


Should I repair or replace my dishwasher?

This is a time old question, first posited by the ancient greeks in their quest for truth and knowledge. Possibly.

There are many factors to consider, the first and most obvious of which is cost. Depending on your situation, it may be cheaper to repair your existing washing machine, or invest in a new one.

The lifespan of your washing machine will naturally depend on what type you previously went for, your level of use and other environmental factors such as the hardness of your water (limescale is the scourge of the dishwasher repair industry). A little regular cleaning and maintenance can go a long way to getting more from your machine. A pro-tip is to run a little dishwasher cleaner through the machine every now and then to ensure you’re getting the best possible performance from it. (more…)
