5 Appliances That Break The Most Often


Your home runs smoothly until something is wrong with one of your major appliances. It happens to every homeowner eventually, particularly if your appliances are getting older. Some of your appliances do work harder than others. As a result, they might be more likely to break down than others. What can you expect to break the most often around your home? 


These five appliances are the top reasons Mike’s Quality Appliance Repair might get called out to your home to have a look. Consider whether it might be time for a tune-up or a replacement on some of these household essentials:



Unfortunately, the refrigerator is one of the most common appliances to need repairs. Why is this appliance so much more problematic than the others? It might be because your fridge is constantly running, trying to keep your food cool or frozen. When something does happen to the refrigerator, it could spell disaster for your budget. Without speedy repair work, the food inside could spoil. 


Washing Machines

Chances are that your washing machine is a workhorse in your home. While most people can get about a decade out of a solid washing machine, you never know when repairs will be necessary. If your machine has surpassed its tenth birthday, then it might be time to consider investing in a new one before it gives out when you have a hamper overflowing with dirty clothes!



This goes hand-in-hand with your washing machine. Whenever one is running, it is likely that the other will soon follow. Trying to add more clothing or bedding than you should is a common cause for requiring a repair. You also need to remember to empty the lint screen after every load and clean the vent out annually. 



How often does your dishwasher run each week? The good news is that running a cycle through the dishwasher regularly is a great way to keep it in good condition. This helps you avoid dry rot that can affect the seals and lead to leaking. However, even if you run it daily, you may still eventually encounter a problem with it. Like your washing machine, it is a good idea to start thinking about replacing your dishwasher after ten to twelve years. 


Garbage Disposal/Garburator

Generally speaking, your garbage disposal is designed to work hard. The problem is that many people overestimate what their disposal is actually equipped to grind up. They add in items that they shouldn’t such as chicken bones. Many repairs could be avoided with a little bit of planning. Brush up on what you can safely put down your garbage disposal to limit the number of repairs you need on this helpful kitchen appliance.
