We are trying to pick a washer/dryer since we just made a second floor laundry room. But really confused between which brand is best. I think we narrowed it down to Electrolux, LG, and Samsung. And I'm pretty sure we want steam since I heard that helps with stains. Any thoughts or why you like one better or worse? Thanks!

What I think is best may not be what you think is best!

What features are you looking for?
Price range?

I am not brand loyal. When looking for appliances I hunt down stuff in my price range, then find as many reviews on my options and decide from that, I won't buy just one brand based on it's overall reputation, everyone makes junk here and there.

Give me the basic Kenmore low end every time. No stupid sensors, lasts for years.

We were torn between the LG and Samsung, but found a sale on Samsung for $600 each, front load both with steam, and have found them to be great for close to a year now. Both our previous Whirlpool Calypso and a friend's twin Kenmore Elite turned out to be terrible, breaking down regularly with a variety of problems. The Samsungs are much faster quieter, and use much less energy. We did go with LG on the dishwasher.

I have Whirlpool for everything. I think it's the best on the market.

Whirlpool owns/markets Maytag, KitchenAid, Jenn-Air, Amana, Gladiator GarageWorks, Inglis, Estate, Brastemp, Bauknecht and Consul. Whirlpool Corporation is "the largest home appliance maker in the world."

Some of those are produced in Amana, Iowa.

We chose a no bells and whistles no name set about 8 years ago and they have been great.
The drier did recently quit on us however, the basement flooded with the heavy rains and the motor got wet so not a fault of the manufacturer.
