I thought I remembered seeing on here (maybe last summer?) a thread about someone shopping for a new refrigerator. I am looking for new refrigerator, washer/dryer, and stove. Any suggestions or recommendations??
Right now my refrigerator is 26 years old. Haven't had a service call on it in the 15 years that I have owned it. (It was my grandma's before that) It's a Montgomery Ward brand, but possibly manufactured by some other company. It still works fine but it is getting loud, is rather outdated and I'm sure not very energy efficient. I really like the look of the french door/bottom freezer but we have space limitations with the way our cupboards are positioned. About a 23cu. ft. is going to be the largest size I can fit in the space. I am leaning towards the stainless steel but keep hearing complaints about finger prints/ hard to keep clean. Does anyone have the satin finish? Is the satin finish still magnetic? I don't need all the fancy bells & whistles just something reliable.
The washer/dryer (whirlpool) we pruchased new in 1991 and even though both of them are running at the moment the last time I had a serivce call on the washer the repair guy told me that I should think about letting them "die with dignity".
Again, not the most energy efficient and probably alot larger than what we need now that the kids are grown.
The stove came with this house 12 years ago and was relatively new at the time. It is a kenmore but we have had to replace the heating element in the oven twice and the clock/timer gave out about a year after we got it and was going to be $300 to fix. (I use the clock/timer on the microwave instead)
I would appreciate any recommendations. I know they don't make them to last like they use to but appliances are a big investment of funds and I want to get my money's worth. Thanks!!
