In last couple years I've looked at their ratings for appliances. Micro waves, dishwashers, washing machines. I've found their ratings about useless. They don't seem to test what I've available here. Their ratings don't seem to jive with the comments left on their website or the customer reviews on Amazon.

I went ahead to my store here and just bought one. A microwave and a washing machine. My store is a family owned and run store. I basically asked them if it breaks will they repair it. Not very precise but seems about as good as getting a high rated one on CU but having 50 "one star " ratings from amazon reviewers all indicating the same problem.

Will see. But I don't expect my washer to last the 36 years the last one did. That was a doozy
