Find Out How Long Your Appliances Should Last

Just moved into a new house (new to me) about a month ago.  All the appliances are about 10 years old..which means they will all probably break soon.

Thank goodness for that home warranty I got.  Now if I can just get everything to break down within the next 12 months I’ll be set.

I got on the “Googs” and found this “Study of Life Expectancy of Home Components”  Here ya go…

 

Gas range oven – 15 years

Fridge – 13 years

Dishwasher – 9 years

Microwave – 9 years

Washing machine – 10 years

Clothes dryer – 13 years

 

Crazy, huh?  I remember my grandmother had the same clothes dryer for 25 years!  Forced obsolescence.  Hate it!
