Re: Washer/dryer


I kind of like the freezer on the bottom idea; Ms Fatma does not. We have a stand-alone upright freezer, and use the one on the fridge mostly for ice, ice cream, and stuff we're too lazy to carry to the upright [it's in the garage]. The fridge does not have an ice maker. One less thing to break and a pain to plumb into our reverse osmosis system.

The upright freezer is not frost-free, so there's the twice a year defrost ritual. Kind of a nuisance, except it provides the opportunity and/or excuse to use up some of those leftovers. At the farm, I had both upright and chest types. We had two because when you butcher an animal, you need lots of storage capacity. Definite advantages to a chest type, but I could never find anything in it.

I have always preferred the freezer on the bottom. The fridge is opened much more often than the freezer and I don't see why one would want to bend down to peer into it every time. I've always disliked side by sides for the same reasons you mentioned. I understand they are making extra wide s by s these days, but you'd have to have a very large kitchen to accomodate it.

I have a "side by side" refrigerator-freezer and do not like that
style at all. The freezer is very narrow and I have difficulty
storing stuff efficiently because of it. Next time the freezer will
be on the top or bottom... and I might even spring for a chest freezer!

Hey- we are going to be refrigerator shopping soon too.  We have a
Kenmore now, and I'm not impressed at all.  The line into the ice
maker is all rusted and falling apart.  It doesn't seem to keep
things well in the crisper.    So- yeah- any advise is welcome.
I'm looking at one of the LG "french door" models- which are
expensive, but I'm that annoyed with my current fridge, and we have
a very small kitchen so the door swing opening space is a big issue.

Can't remember how long I've had my Maytag, but it has been
great.  Can't even remember when we had to have it serviced -
better knock on wood.  I had a Sears once and hated it.  We will
be refrigerator shopping soon.  What do you recommend:

Question for you all, what kind of washer/dryer do you have or
want?   If you have it, are you happy?   What is the best feature?
     You know when one goes they all go.   We replaced our furnace
last spring but I won one.   Late last fall we replaced the
refrigerator and now it is the washer and dryer.   I have never
had anything but Maytag and have been fully satisfied with each.
My current set is 21 yrs old.   Maytag, Iowa owned in the past,
have had some real problems recently and I am leaning not to
purchase another.   Energy efficient and reliability is the top
requirements
