Not true.
Sub-Zero has a 5/12 year warranty.

Not sure if im right, but these days its better to buy new things then fix old ones as the cost of fixing or repair ends up being more or less the same as buying a new one or even more at times.... Its like this in my country especially with cell phones better to buy a new one then fix an old one (cost wise its better not sure if its same in your countries )

Samsung runs a longer warranty on the sealed system as well.. Most places do. So, if OP has a leak that's in the compressor.. I can't remember if Samsung's sealed warranty is 5 or 10 years.. But there's a chance that it could be covered.

And.. Yeah.. Stay away from Samsung. For everything. Their engineering is faulty.. I mean, you can look back at the times they used the wrong value capacitors in TVs, causing them to fail.. Their stuff looks pretty, but is massively expensive and won't last. Plus, it's so technical that Joe the Repairman really can't make heads or tails of it.

People laugh at me because I have a 20+ year old Hotpoint, no frills Fridge. standard top freezer model. But short of an evap fan I had to replace, and me still needing to blow out the drain on it (Which I've needed to do for years) I haven't had a single problem from it.

Our fridge is 92 years old. It has not significantly broken since we have had it (about 10 -14 years), but if it breaks we will have it fixed. It is pretty simple, so fixing it will likely cost less than buying another one.

i had someone come out today and give me an estimate. they said there was a freon leak somewhere in it as well as the pba inverter was starting to go along with a mother board. ugh. once i heard how much the test was to check and see where the freon leak is i said junk it LOL. 450.00 to cheak for a leak i guess they use a special dye and light to look for the leak and that takes 24 hrs let alone what he said the compressor would cost my mouth dropped to the floor when he told me 750.00- 1000.00 smakers not to mention the rest. the tech even told me to get rid of the nightmare and buy a whirlpool unit

Samsung and LG are both South Korean, but they are rivals. I don’t know what you mean by “sister companies.” They are separate.

Samsung has a bad rep with unavailable parts for repair.

But let me tell you about my old Whirlpool oven. It locked up during a cycle and would not release or cool down. We had to flip its circuit. Whirlpool replaced the electronics for free. All was well for another couple of years. Then it refused to turn off after baking, and locked up. That was enough for us. We later found out that this is a known issue for WP ovens of that vintage. Imagine having a holiday meal in the oven that you can’t get out of the oven!

Why should I buy another Whirlpool?

We bought LG washer and dryer a little over two years ago. They work fine. Consumer Reports published results of a survey which placed LG appliances in general above average in reliability. We replaced oven, micro and fridge with LG. We replaced dishwasher with Bosch.

I am going to be honest. I am unhappy that new fridges require replacement of filters every six months. This seems to me to be a way to extract more revenue. But they do have this requirement. My LG fridge is fine but it is early days. I love oven and micro though. They are beautiful and functional.

How will they hold up? I do not know. But I sure was not rewarding Whirlpool for producing a messed up oven.
