As much as I would like to carry on this debate I believe we'll get off topic, since I'm looking for feedback on the specifc brands mentioned from present owners.
Thanks Gigit, did you get the 30" 4 burner slide in range?Gigit wrote: ↑We have a Kitchen Aid gas stove, which is wonderful. All of the rest of our kitchen appliances are Whirlpool. Dishwasher is AMAZING, best I've ever used, and it's very quiet. Our laundry pair are Maytag. Our appliances are new, so it's too soon to tell for repairs, but performance and looks are excellent.
Thanks, my wife tends to cook a lot as we entertain several times per month so I was thinking of getting the higher end line, I should actually check the reviews. I don't put a lot of emphasis on review because some tend to contradict each other. Something like, I give this dishwasher high marks as it cleans very well and is the quietest I've ever owner, and the next may say, this dishwasher sucks, I can't seem to get one clean load and it's so noisy it keeps us awake at night since we run it off peak time.MMMM wrote: ↑We have Kitchenaid Architect II. 3.5 years of use and no major problems. gas stove has worked flawlessly. Very easy to clean. The fridge is great. Never bothered to hook up the water line. Last week we replaced the pulley cables on the dishwasher. This is a common service issue for all of the mentioned brands (starts to creak). The repair took 15 minutes and cost 29.00 for the part. The dishwasher is not as quiet as our Miele in our old house but works well. No other repairs or problems. The venthood is great 600cfm and easy to clean. One light bulb burnt out no other issues.
Only major issue I know of with the stoves is certain models had/have an issue with the glass cracking during the self cleaning cycle.
