Back in '09, we did a major kitchen redo. We bought all Whirlpool appliances; gas range, fridge, microwave/venthood and dishwasher along with a washer and dryer. Whirlpool is an old name right? Always made good stuff. Haha. All but the washer and dryer were crap. The refrigerator has ice and water in the door. Big no-no. It is impossible to keep it working right. Never get that feature again.

Local independent repair guy says all the brands buy their parts from the same suppliers in China and they are all crap. Basically, disposable appliances. I asked about Maytag; my wife's grandmother owned a coin-laundry and knew a thing or two about washers. She swore by Maytag. Today, she would swear at them he said. Same crap as all the others...
