Our clients often ask for our recommendations for what products to purchase. Please click a category of products above, or see our shortcut to our Best and Worst Picks.
Keep in mind that we do not sell these products. Models change frequently. This is general information about brands, our experience based on their performance, and feedback we get from our clients.
For questions about specific models and features, please call the manufacturer of the product for complete information.
If you've used this page before, you may need to refresh it as information changes regularly.
How To Use the Charts
The information in this section will help identify manufacturers of major brand appliances. This information changes regularly as companies are acquired, and models are added or deleted. I have included some side notes that may help in selection of brands. Your result with a particular brand or model may vary from my report but my 30 years experience and customer feedback has made this information very accurate. You can't get this type of information from the store.
I have also rated the appliances, based on my opinion of the products I service, along with the input of my customers who already are using them. The rating number is in the last column and the appliances are rated as follows:
|N/R||not rated due to new product or insufficient information available at the present time|
|*||Products made out of the country or in limited distribution, affecting parts availability|
Rating is based on a compilation of the following:
- Product performance (customer satisfaction)
- Repair history
- Parts availability
Note the line number is not a ranking, products are listed alphabetically.
As you will see, many brands are the same machine with different name plates. Knowing this information will help you select the best product at the right price.
