To attract Millennial and Generation Z.
We have a Samsung W/D pair, top load with the new small agitator. 2 years. So far, so good. But the Wifi was beyond useless. Didn't work well. App stunk. All I wanted was for it to notify us when the load was done. Couldn't. I got these gratis as a product evaluator, otherwise, I would not bother with that feature.
- Whirlpool fridge 1: OK for 5 years, then started having drain line freeze ups. Had to thaw every 6 months. Got another Whirlpool, now 2 years old, and just fine so far. Recently got a note in the mail saying there was a class action that would pay for the freezing problem. I did my own work so I couldn't collect.
- Kitchen Aid over the stove microwave. Looked good, terrible. The fully electronic door would fail to open and actually get stuck with a relay clicking wildly. The only way to stop this was to unplug it. (Had to get on a stool to yank the cord inside the cabinet.) Replaced it at 10 months.
- Whirlpool D/W. Fine at 3 years. Replaced a still working, but stained, Sears of 10 years vintage, which was actually a rebranded Whirlpool.
- GE Stove. At month 5, would randomly just shut off. A real bummer during baking. They never could find the source since it was so intermittent. Replaced all the electronics. No go. We lived with it for 5 years, then replaced with a Maytag. That's now 2 years old and doing OK so far.
- LG dehumidifier: still good at 3 years. Actually does well determining humidity levels. Not sure I trust LG, but this one works for us.
Give me the old mechanical appliances please! Most electronic ones seem to have glitches galore.
