You are currently viewing Study shows that 75% of appliances breakdown in 10 years

“The survey found that more than three-quarters of respondents have had a large household appliance break down, and 75 per cent of those products were said to be 10 years old or less.

Nearly one in three said their appliance broke down in less than five years.

When asked to recall the manufacturer of the appliance that broke down, Kenmore was named more than any other brand, accounting for 21 per cent — or about one in five — of all appliance breakdowns in Canada.

The online survey of 1,522 adult Canadians posed questions about large household appliances, with consumers sharing details about refrigerators, dishwashers, stoves, washing machines and dryers.”

Kenmore, a leader in the consumer home appliance industry, is a surprise mention on this list. Many people associate this brand with reliability and trustworthiness. However, even they aren’t immune to breakdowns of their products. Still, having 1/5 of the respondents mention them in the survey is a little alarming.
