So here is where we need your input...we have lived in our home for over 19 years and when we purchased the home, the dishwasher was original and was over 10 years old with a chain to hold the door from falling off. We split the cost with the original owner to replace the dishwasher.
The replacement lasted 10 years and died, the latest one has lasted 7 years and sounds like a jet taking off every time we use it.
We went out to our favorite Chinese restaurant last evening with friends and stopped by Home Depot on our way home to check prices on replacement dishwashers. HD has a July 4th sale going on and had two that we really liked, a Maytag and an LG, both were stainless steel, which would match the rest of our new appliances. The sale was $200 off each unit with $49 installation and haul away, which is a $50 savings.
|LG Unit at $678, this is the one Tracy likes...|
|Maytag at $498 - This is the one I like...|
So, I know that the many people who follow our blog are very intelligent and knowledgeable in these types of decisions and can help us to make the right decision. My position is why wait and take a chance that the units we like will not be on sale and that installation will be at full price. Tracy's position is why spend the money now when our current dishwasher may last for a while yet. So what do you think? Your input could ensure that we have another 30 happy years together. Thanks in advance for your advice and enjoy your weekend!
