In general the better quality branded appliances tend to last longer than cheaper generic brands or “builder quality” units.
|Oven/stove (Electric)||13-20 years|
|Oven/stove (Gas)||18-24 years|
|Washing machine||8-12 years|
NOTE: These are averages and should only be used as a guide when making decisions.
In many cases it is well worth the cost of repairing the better quality, up market branded appliances.
Cheaper or generic units due to their price point are usually not cost effective when it comes to making repairs.
