I have an old (like 20 years old) Kenmore dishwasher that had been working great up until the other day. **edited to add that we occasionally need to open and shut the door several times before the machine will start a cycle, but it always starts) A piece broke in the pump impeller, so that will need to be replaced for $50. My question; is it worth fixing a 20-year-old Kenmore or just spend the money towards a new one?

We also found a used Miele dishwasher (circa 2005) on a local marketplace for $100. Would that be worth purchasing? They said it worked well when they took it out. They are remodeling.
