How long would you keep fixing your washer??
So, I own a GE Harmony w/out a heater. I think it's about 7 years old now. I really like it! I was contemplating buying the new LG Waveforce with the heater, but couldn't convince my husband to go for it! =)
Last year the transmission was repaired. Big job, the tech had to have a helper out to complete the job.
Sometimes the digital display is slow to come on.
I don't have a warranty and know the main controller boards are roughly $300.
What other issues could I face with this age factor?
Would I be able to repair any issues easily myself as the F & P's seem to be?
Is the transmission repair a main operating component?
How many years can you repair these units and still have the same quality of washing?
I hope I'm making sense here.
I guess I'm trying to ask if repairing this for years to come is reasonable.
The wash disk is thick shiny stainless steel and I noticed on the new LG it's brushed and doesn't look as thick.
My wash water for all settings is wonderful! I feel this unit doesn't have a dumbed down setting on temps. and this factor causes me to think about keeping it.
