"European Union member states are this week voting on dishwasher efficiency and repair. If that sounds as dull as, well, dishwater, then you need to consider the last time your own dishwasher broke. With the right rules in place, it would be a cheap and easy fix. However, you’re not allowed to fiddle with the machine because it would invalidate the warranty. So, instead, you go and buy a new model and throw the old one on the dump." http://fortune.com/2019/01/09/right-to-repair-manufacturers/?utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=social-share-article&utm_content=20190217&fbclid=IwAR1_LTPgkrgMVYgRFtq1KuzJznHMtqcxHDPenWrRVII1zJpFjj_-qZffTOs
