I (and probably the other agents who answered this question) would appreciate knowing how this all turns out.
Loan is conventional
I don't know if this makes a difference but the sellers bank and the company i am using for the mortgage is the same (Wells fargo)
Suppose your appraiser says someone has to fix the broken window or you can't get a mortgage. The seller and his lender won't fix the window, and the seller's lender (actually, the seller's lender's investor, like Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac or HUD) won't allow you to fix it . You get a bid from a licensed contractor to fix the window. The bid is $200. Ask your lender and the seller's lender and your title company if you can do an escrow hold back. If everyone agrees, you may need to leave 150% of the repair bid ($300) with the title company or your lender to pay the licensed contractor to fix the window after you own the house. If the repair costs $200, you get the extra $100 back.
The title company pays the contractor when the repair is completed. Your lender will probably charge you $50 or so to verify that the repair was done.

But another question is, does your purchase contract call for all of those appliances to stay? If so, what is the Seller's agent saying about all this? It doesn't sound likely that the appliances will be returned, but if the contract calls for them to stay, their agent should be having a very direct conversation with his Sellers.
Best of luck.
