  • Appliances I can personally recommend....

    Whirlpool and Sharp. NO doubt about it.

    I had to replace my washer today. I guess 19 years of hard use finally took its toll. I replaced the dryer after only 13 years. They were both originally bought at the same time in 1983.

    Yes. I replaced them both with Whirlpools. I laughed when the guy tried to sell me a '5 year extended warranty'.

    I replaced our 'first-ever' Sharp microwave...after 11 years of daily use....with another Sharp.

    In days of almost NOTHING lasting(printers come to mind for SOME reason...) it's nice to know you DO get your money's worth with SOME things.

    My Maytag washer is a piece of crap. The company will do nothing for me, as the warranty has been expired for a few months. I later found that the thing isn't even made by Maytag. It's only sold by Maytag with the Maytag label. Don't ever buy a washer with a plastic tub. Especially a Maytag. My next one will be a Whirlpool or a Kenmore.

      I know a guy that BUILDS Maytag appliances. Even HE says they're crap.....

        Unfortunately I own spendmores and generally expensive items..... to the lay consumer that would be KENMORE AND GENERAL ELECTRIC.

        Damn dishwasher kept spewing out hot water today it ended up all over my kitchen floor now I have some weird white residue from it.

        the frig drawers are all broken and the damn thing is only four years old. I called for replacement parts, a hundered bucks a tray. YEAH Riiiiiight.

        And the stove... looked cool at the time. Stainless steel, but the plastic handles cracked and fell off after three months. When I finally replaced them a year later it cost me 120 dolla for metal replacements (plastic ones were just as much) and those don't even hold the opening bar in place. Grrrrrr....

        I bought all of the appliances at the same time 4.5 years ago. grrrrrr....

        I got a HOT TOOLS curling iron that rox tho... I've owned it for ten years and the 20 dolla I spent on it was well worth it.

          Own a laundromat and Whirlpool is the best the same as Kenmore. Whirlpool just makes them for Sears.

            When microwaves when first introduced to the public in 71 or 72 I bought the Caloric countertop model. The only other choice was Litton. That appliance worked flawlessly (and probably still does for the person I gave it to) until around 1994 when I remodeled the kitchen and installed an over the stove GE model. WHAT A P.O.S.!! A month after the warranty expired the main board burned out and they wanted $248.00 just for the part! That GE was removed, tossed in the dumpster and was replaced by and $80.00 Sanyo countertop model from K-Mart.
            I also bought a new Maytag dishwasher to replace the still working Kenmore.. it turns out to be a P.O.S. The pump gave out twice, both times out of warranty of course.
            I also bought a Magic-Chef range (electric) to replace the still working Kenmore.. ANOTHER P.O.S. which had 3 out of the 4 burner plugs break apart rendering the burners unusable. And of course it's out of warranty.
            I didn't replace the 25+ y.o. Whirlpool fridge. It's still working just fine.

            The Whirlpool/Kenmore washer and dryers are great. Mine are around 20 years old and the only thing I had to do so far was to repair the dryer when one of the drum rollers gave out. I bought the rebuild kit from Sears and it was an easy fix. I also found out where all those OTHER socks disappear to and collected alot of loose change.

              I've determined that the reason the Maytag repairman is so bored for lack of work is not because it's such a quality product, but because when they break, people don't bother fixing them. They just toss them and buy a different brand.

                I've got a GE washer, about 19 years old. The tub bearing are shot and when it's spinning, it sounds like a cement mixer. It'll probably break down one of these days , but in the meantime, I always know when the spin cycle starts.

                Don't know what brand I'll replace it with. But (and this could be "appliance myth"), I have heard that most of the stuff Sears sells isn't the actual namebrand, but rather a cheaper model made with lower grade parts. The claim is that Sears orders their stock at a reduced cost-per-unit, so what you get is inferior to buying the same item elsewhere.

                Anyone know anything about that?

                  I dn't know about Sears (Kenwhirl?) but I know that Maytag does it with some of their models. Everybody does it. Lots of appliances are just rebadged verisons of someone other brand. Same goes for electronics, tools, etc....I believe Crafstman power tools (some of them) are just rebadged Black and Deckers. The "Ridgid" brand you see at Home Depot is the same.
