Analogs had a lifetime of 15- 20 years. From what I've been able to ascertain, digital motherboards, no matter how high-end the appliance, get steamed to death within 5 years. Extended warranties cost as much as replacement. Planned obsolescence may be great for the manufacturer; but aside from the obvious hit to the consumer pocket, what of the ecological impact of so many huge metal boxes going into the waste stream every five years?
My dishwasher is only 2 years-old and the electronic panel broke. Our previous dishwaher - an incredible work-horse Kenmore - no frills - we had had for 15 years. How can I find a dishwasher that will do the ob and last? Seems like all these new appliances have all this technology that just breaks down.
