What type of washer/dryer sets are you looking for? Stackable or side-by-side? We have had the worst luck with washers and dryers. We have to stack ours. The first set we had, the dryer caught fire on the fourth year we had it. It was a Frigidaire set and of course when we Googled it, there were tons of other fire stories like ours. Our insurance company sent over a specialist to find a cause and they couldn't find one. Our venting was clean and up to code. Flames were licking up the ceiling and the smoke damage and extinguisher chemicals caused us to have to move out for two weeks. Frigidaire offered us a $200 coupon to purchase a new set. NOPE!
That was five years ago. We ended up buying a Maytag set and just two weeks ago, the washer started making a horrible noise. Of course it was no longer under warranty and the parts to fix it were going to cost $460 to repair the bearings, which the Maytag rep. said was a very common issue, and labor was an additional cost. A new washer is about $650, so it didn't make sense to repair it for that much. We were going to just replace with a new Maytag but the rubber gasket on the front loading machine at Best Buy was all folded back and showing the plastic hardware underneath. We went to Lowe's and we opened another Maytag, and just touching that rubber gasket caused it to fold in on itself. Our five year old model was of much better quality. Best Buy rep. said they only have issues with the Maytag. We ended up going with a LG, as my parent have had their set for 10 years without any issues. We sold our old set on Craigs List, even with the bearing issue. They were sure they could fix it on their own. Oh, and we had to sell our Maytag dryer because you can't stack different brands.
