One of the appliance people at the Waldorf store also warned me about Samsung. This was after I knew about them and was testing him though. Was a bit surprised he told me that though.All 3 Lowe's I've worked at have had LG and Samsung graveyards. 1st Samsung refrigerator I saw go out the door about 12 years ago back in Illinois came back in just 2 days. It had turned from a refrigerator into a smoker cooker.
Our preference is for as few electronics as possible in major appliances. Have a high end Maytag washer and dryer we bought in September 1983. Still work just fine, battleship grade electro-mechanical controls.
