Repair or buy a new one???
Recently our KitchenAid Super Capacity Plus washer stopped pumping out water...short story, the pump is shot and to replace and get the machine running again is $180.
I have no idea how old the machine is but it has been in the house all the 6 years we have owned it.
I put a LOT of laundry through, washing at least 2 loads of clothes a day, plus all the bedding for a family of 4, including the comforters (all double sized)weekly. I sometimes put sleeping bags through too. We are heavy users.
Thanks to the recession and business collapse, we put off remodelling the laundry, which we had planned to hold a new front loading Miele set. Now we are much more budget minded.
Should I just repair this washer, or buy a new one? And if I buy a new heavy duty washer, which gives me the best bang for the buck?
