If you own your home or if you have ever lived in a home, you have either already purchased some big household appliances or you are in the process of buying your first major appliance. Some of the common household appliances that you are likely looking for probably include the following:

  • refrigerators
  • oven
  • dishwasher
  • washer/dryer

Once you begin using these appliances for a few years, you will eventually wonder how long they will be able to last. Generally, a household appliance’s lifespan will depend on how you use it and how you take care of it.

We want to give you an idea of how you can ensure your appliances will last for a significant amount of time.


You can usually get up to fifteen good years out of your refrigerator. In order for you to keep your refrigerator running for many years, you will have to make sure you keep everything cleaned, on the inside and the outside. When you notice any dirt, dust, and other debris on the coils of your refrigerator, you should make sure you clean it as often as you can.

When dirt and dust accumulate on the refrigerator coils, your refrigerator will begin to fail because the condenser will have issues. When you have problems with the fridge condenser, your refrigerator may not even last past the expected lifespan. One of the best ways to prevent issues with the condenser is the have a brush that will allow you to clean the coils. You should try to do this at least every year.


You can typically get fifteen years from your oven; that is if you take proper care of it.  Many homeowners face problems with their ovens because they do not properly care for them. Ovens need to be cleaned so there will be no buildup. If you notice that you are seeing more leftovers in your stove than you do in the refrigerator, you should probably set a time to clean your oven thoroughly.


Your dishwasher can usually last up to ten years and maybe a few years longer. If your dishwasher ever causes you problems, you may not be in a big hurry to have it repaired since you can always hand wash your dishes.

If you have a dishwasher with special features, the repairs and maintenance costs may be expensive because of the features you have. The special features may cost more to repair.  A great way to keep your dishwasher working for a significant amount of time is to clean it regularly.


Your washer and dryer can each last up to ten years, and longer. However, it greatly depends on how many loads of clothes your washing machine and dryer have been through.

A washing machine can easily be stained because of all the detergent, bleach, etc. that gets poured into it. Cleaning the inside of your washing machine with the right products will ensure that you will have a washing machine that will not fail you for a long time.

As you probably already know, when lint builds up into the lint trap, it can cause serious damage to your dryer. You will also risk having your dryer starting a fire. It is very important to pay close attention to how much lint is building up in your lint traps.
