Nowadays it seems everything is made with planned obsolescence. When we moved here just over three years ago, the kitchen appliances were all new. A year ago our microwave broke and now our dishwasher has broken. It costs more to fix them then it does to purchase a new one. Years ago appliances would last for years.
Now new fangled appliances which use less water and electricity to run seem to quit working far too soon. When I add up the cost of the dishwasher and the refrigerator and divide that number by 3 for the years we've lived here, it adds up to a big expense. Just keeping things in good working order is eating me out of house and home. I think appliances should last at least ten years. What do you think? What have your experiences with appliances been. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
