What are your opinions on GE, Monogram appliances
Posted 30 January 2007 - 03:57 AM
only GE comments, we will get to others later!
I will start (staying with GE only).
Their Laundry was not a favorite of mine, but I have come to terms with it and it seems to be getting better, The new laundry has been much more reliable than the past.
Ranges are easy, they are popular and reliable and we like them with the exception they could use some updating on appearance
REFRIGERATORS - lots and lots of model to chose from, the bottom freezer refrigs made by LG seem to be doing well (quiet and reliable) and sxs to many models cannot keep track of.
top mounts had some issues with frost build up in freezer but that appears to be gone now!
hardware good, fit and finish good, easy to work on
dishwashers, again we kind of lost touch with them due to that lousey wd26x77 pump that went bad like clockwork, but that has been changed a while ago and the units seem to be quieter. no longer have to change the pump at 5 years to the day.

Most of what I hear from my service techs is that GE cooking products really hold up. I also tend to read up on things at places like epinions.com and even the evil spawn that is Consumer Reports says that GE cooking products are reliable. If all three sources are saying it, then it must be true. Because of this, I sell a lot of GE ranges and microwaves.
The other thing I like about selling GE (mind you, I rarely repair them myself) is that when we DO have a problem, GE has been very good about taking care of it. Our state has one of those implied warranty laws, which is great for the consumer, but royally screws us over because the law holds the dealer as responsible as the manufacturer for making a faulty machine. Because GE has been so easy to work with, we push it to the moon. After all, every time our company has to eat the cost of repairs on a Whirlpool range or a Frigidaire dishwasher, it is bad for the company. GE helps us.
On a related note, I hate Whirlpool for their lack of support when we have problems, warrantied or not.
As for GE dishwashers... I hear they are getting better, but I'm not a big fan. Feature for feature, they seem overpriced to me. When I can get a Bosch or a Kitchenaid with similar features for less and they're no worse from what I hear, I'm not going to sell much GE.
I just wish that GE didn't source out so many of its products to LG. That makes me nervous. I also wish that they made the Monogram ranges. I've heard they're DCS ranges. I feel more confident selling GE ranges due to their low failure rate.
