A fairly new front load washer with bad shocks is worth fixing. If you don't want to keep it, put an advert on Craigslist. I predict a fast sale if you price it right.

Most dishwashers out of warranty, unless it's something like a Miele (which last 25+ years), are junk and are only worth the scrap value and even that won't be much. The most valuable item in a dishwasher is the motor. Counter top microwaves are worth even less unless it's a commercial model. My recommendation is to dump either at a recycling center and be done with it.

I have a guy that usually charges $100-$150 including parts for most of my repairs. Some have been more, but that seems to be what I average on a Fridge or Stove. If you want his info PM me.
