Repair or Buy New

July 27th, 2006 at 04:40 pm

Finally made the decision to have my electric dryer repaired instead of buying a new dryer. (drum would no longer turn)

I wasn't sure which way to go sense the dryer was several years old and it was basically dead.

I decided that since there are so few parts to replace on a dryer versus on a washer....that I would spend less than 1/2 what I'd spend on a new dryer and have a new motor, bearings, gaskets and pay for clean out of the vent/exhaust of years of lint.

Certainly drys so much better/faster and is much quieter.

Will have to see how long it will last to see if my Return On Investment (ROI) will be realized.
