Should I get insurance for my 7 year old tumble dryer?

I bought a Beko heat pump tumble dryer in 2017. It was expensive at the time (over £300) and still works well. I wonder if it is worth insuring still, or if it is considered too old?
Thank you for your answers.

    MSE would say that put a amount away each month that the insurance would cost. Which can go towards a new one, as odds on may not get parts for the old one.

    Depends on the T&C's really. I had a 6 year old Hotpoint freezer which stopped working. Phoned Hotpoint service and they recommended I took out a service plan with Domestic & General as the cost was comparable to a one-off call out. 

    Hotpoint sent local contractors to repair but it would fail again fairly soon after. Read the T&C's which stated that after six attempts at a repair I would be entitled to a replacement. Well they had more than 6 goes at repairing it so I claimed a new freezer which was agreed by them. Result.

    Check the cost of the policy against the cost of replacing the dryer in the next few years and see which is the better value.
