Fix or Buy.
April 28, 2021 10:19pm CST
I just received an email from the washing machine company. This is the price quotation of the parts to fix the washer. It is written there that the parts will cost me $250 plus the labor fee of $30-40. In short I need to spend around $300 for this. I already ran through some washer online and I saw an LG and TCL brand inverter type already for around $450 to 500 I think. hmm.. Do you think I let them fix it or just buy a new one?

If you can buy a new one for $450-$500, I would chuck the old washer and just buy a new one. I am considering that the cost to fix the old one is roughly 60% of the cost of buying a new one. I use the 50/50 rule. If the cost of the repair is 50% or more of the cost of replacement, I usually opt for replacement.
@RebeccasFarm yes, I am leaning more into buying now but I am still scouting for a good item online. I do not like buying appliances online so I check out first the store website and might call them if the item is available before going there personally
