    I think I'll keep the cost low and maybe spend the $10k on a Barrett 50

    We plan on going the KitchenAid route when the time comes. We have a new dishwasher by them and it is OUTSTANDING. Our Whirlpool Elite is 7 years old and about on its last leg. Will not buy another.

    Before anyone says anything about me not taking the door off to be compliant with state law, the local scrap guy picked it up as I was setting it down on the curb.

    Say NO to sammysung! 5 years old and have had countless service calls on the dang ice maker. Had the extended warranty.... and was told that after 3 visits for the same issue in a calendar year that the unit would be deemed a lemon and the entire fridge would be replaced. Got to that point and the Lowe’s extended warranty folks said that they did away with that policy. I will never buy anything major from Lowe’s again!

    side note- have a plain Jane Kenmore that serves as the beer fridge in the garage. 21 years strong w/o 1 single issue. The garage is one of the most hostile environments for a fridge to live in especially in the summer.

    Kenmore used to be a dependable model years ago and they were also owned by Whirlpool. Times have changed...as well as appliances. My ex-MIL had a refrigerator that must have been built during the Depression, the ice maker was inside the refrig and needed periodic defrosting. Crosley I think. She died at 96 and the thing was still running well.

    Kenmore could have been any number of mfrs. Sears went with the lowest bidder, but Whirlpool did make a lot of 'em.

    We still have/use the Kenmore dryer that we bought in the '70s, but I have done some minor repairs to it over the years. For some reason, the mechanical timer is gettin' a bit noisy... :D

    We bought a Frigidaire Gallery french door model from Hahn's a year ago. It's been great so far. It was between that one and Whirlpool, but the Frigidaire was a few hundred less in the finish we wanted (black stainless). EVERYONE said stay away from Samsung. They break, and parts are impossible to come by quick enough.

    One thing I noticed on the Whirlpools I didn't care for was the inside icemaker on the french door models is YUGE. Takes up half the top shelf. The Frigidaire's maker is not nearly as big, but I have run out of ice in the summer while entertaining and mixing Moscow Mules...

    I have had a Samsung for 10 years with no problems. It looks good on the outside but not much space on the inside, in the future we will go with a different brand.
