The service life of a household appliance may vary depending on the purchase price of the appliance and the use of the appliance. For example, a $349 dishwasher will not have the same lifespan as a $2,000 dishwasher.
For a household appliance, there is an average industrial life that is provided by appliance manufacturers and a practical service life, which is generally recognized by the courts in the event of a dispute. You will not be surprised to learn that the average lifespan provided by the manufacturers who manufacture the appliances is much higher than that used by the courts.
