Dishwasher Secrets for Spotless Results

Do newer models offer vastly improved features? For example, new refrigerators use less energy than old ones. You may be able to recoup part of the cost of replacement that way. Consider whether the appliance is unique. If it fits into an odd space or it's an unusual color, it may be too expensive and difficult to replace. Finally, figure out how old the appliance is. Over the years, experts have figured out the average life of most household appliances.

Air conditioners – 8 to 15 years
Dishwashers – 5 to 12 years
Disposals – 5 to 12 years
Dryers – 8 to 12 years
Freezers – 15 to 20 years
Furnaces – 8 to 12 years
Heat pumps – 8 to 12 years
Refrigerators – 15 to 20 years
Stoves – 15 to 20 years
Washers – 8 to 12 years
Water heaters – 8 to 12 years
