My husband and I recently got a new dishwasher. Our old one was breaking down and rusty on the inside and I didn't feel safe using it. Not only that but it always felt like my dishes were dirtier when the dishwasher was finished.

We made sure to get an energy efficient one and one with a light wash cycle. The one we got is amazing except for one fatal flaw. You have to manually turn it off. So no throwing dishes in the dishwasher and leaving the house for a few hours and I have to be cognizant of the time anytime I have it running. If I forget that I had it running, well so much for saving money and energy. Other than that, it's awesome. I just have to set a timer on my phone.

We may have to replace some of our other appliances in the near future, though I think most still have a few good years left. We recently bought a house and I think the people who built the place bought the cheapest on the market, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but then they dont' last as long. The other day I was worried that our refridgerator was dying because it was making a strange noise, but it seems to have stopped. I really don't want to have to have to replace anything because there is already enough junk in landfills. Unless there is a way to recycle them? Or at least many of the major parts.

If your appliances die you can still sell them on craigslist. Scrappers love old appliances!
