replace or repair dryer
We have a dryer about 15 years old that still runs but the heating element faded out and is not heating. Would this repair be easy and cheap enough to make sense or should we look for a new dryer since it is nearing end of life expectancy?
I'm wondering if new dryers have the problems of some other appliances where they have put computer mother boards in them that can cause malfunctions? We lost a 3 or 4 yo range to a mother board failure so I'm sensitive to this issue. At least the old appliance doesn't have this susceptibility.
