Important to note that in spite of what eventually WILL happen to Sears, there are several brand names they own that will certainly live on.

My parents bought a LG washer and dryer, the washer lasted 4 years. Then they bought Samsung no issues.

This is a good idea, though she is a stout German woman and she will not yield easily.



Thanks for the input so far guys.

In regard to whatever you look into, I would consider something that's been on the market long enough for reviews.

I see a lot of people recommending Samsung. I love that company even though I would love to hate them. Their customer service is Satan himself. They don't back their product for ****. However, when they get it right, it's right, well designed and beautiful.

Unfortunately two of those things hold true for their products even with the third doesn't. We bought what should have been an awesome Samsung fridge and it has been nothing but trouble the entire time we have had it. Price notwithstanding, as we paid a lot, it's been crap and the maker left EVERYONE in the cold.

I still buy (some) Samsung products, but not without it a) being out a minute, and b) a considerable online review audit.

Also factor in about 100-150 bucks for install fees and install parts

Thanks for the ballpark I wasn't sure what to expect.

Take it from a former appliance repair tech, stick with a basic Whirlpool Dryer... Fairly reliable and cheap to fix... Design hasn't changed much in the last 60 years

Also bare in mind Whirlpool owns Maytag, Amana, Kitchen Aid, Magic Chef, Admiral, Norge, Estate, Roper and a bunch of others that are all identical internally and differ only cosmetically

Wife and I were set on getting a Samsung or LG this year until we heard from HD, Lowe's and the local independent store that their support for electronic issues in our area is close to non-existant. Hadn't thought about that before, so we went with a comparable Maytag from the local place that confirmed they could fully service or repair. Just something else to consider if you're eyeing any of the new-fangled electros.

Just what exactly happened? Dryers are typically really simple, unless it's a modern fancy one with all kinds of crazy (pointless?) options. You can probably repair it yourself for really cheap.
