Help guesstimating remaining life of Hotpoint washer and dryer?
My Hotpoint washer and gas dryer are still functioning (squeaks in dryer only problem) after at least 21 years (were here when I bought my place). Planning renovation and wanting to do it to low-budget, I'm wondering about keeping the Hotpoints.
This is both b/c money and b/c if I replace, I have to get a very more expensive electric dryer and maybe smaller stacking units (building rules, NYC).
Should I ask the repair guy who comes for the squeak to estimate? Is there something specific to look at? Or should I just get rid of the oldsters now, since they could stop at any time.
