Making appliances that last forever isn't as profitable as filling up landfills with made to toss units

This is one issue a lot of environmentalists show their true colors on. The push against long lasting appliances for ones that regularly go to landfills show they are either invested in the industry or are getting kickbacks for forcing regulations.

The last administration forced copper parts to be thinner. I had to have a copper part replaced three times on a brand new ac/furnace the first year.  Cost me $500 the first time. After that the company refused to charge me. That part wasn’t covered because they routinely break now.

Get a top load Speed Queen, it's built like a friggin' tank.  We had a front load Whirlpool Duet that lasted about 5 years, and other than how dry it could spin towels I don't miss it at all.

I have had LG and GE front load combo and both were ok.  Had to replace the door hinge on the LG washer (which was easy) and the belt tensioner pulley on the LG dryer, which wasn’t as easy, but not bad.  This was over 10 years and a ton of really heavy loads of laundry and a ton of dog hair.  Like huge comforters daily. 

Just got the GE’s for my parents since we are staying there and theirs was really old.  So far so good

I might splurge for something borderline industrial when we buy a home just because of the amount and weight of what we wash.

I know front loaders are the new hotness but our 15 year old Fisher-Paykel toploader with its direct drive motor has been solid as a rock.
my sister has had a lot of issues with mold with the front load dryers back in arkansas. Don’t really have that issue here so I got one.

I have two basic bitch kenmore washer and dryers in my condo that are over 14 years old. They just don’t make them like they used to. Before that I had a kenmore dishwasher that was 28 years old when it finally went out

I have a guy named Buddy in LR that fixes all my appliances. When I had to replace my dishwasher we went with a whirlpool from Metro. He specifically told me not to buy Bosch because they have more issues in fixing than some of the others. He said two others to avoid but can’t remember the names but metro was so easy and better priced than anyone.

I have a whirlpool front load washer and dryer and whirlpool frig and dishwasher...all brand new and no issues so far. My last house had the Bosch and it was a POS and never worked right.

We have LG combo that has been surprisingly solid for about 12 years.  I have had to reset it a couple times because the kids would push some magical combo of buttons to make the controls stop responding.

Seems really just luck of the draw on modern appliances regardless of brand. I have been putting off a new fridge because all the horror stories I read when shopping them.

Maytag is not what it was before Whirlpool bought them, quality is just not as good, but not terrible. 

Other than that I can't help much.  Prior to getting divorced we had an old Maytag Neptune for 16 or 17 years.

I bought a Samsung set a year ago for my new house...no problems yet.
