Choosing a refrigerator

6 posts in this topic

As I've posted elsewhere I'm the extremely fortunate guy whose fiance and her three teenage daughters have just moved in.  I have a handle on the washer repair andI'm re-venting the dryer to dry better, but while the refrigerator works ok, it's just not big enough anymore.  The good news is, I get a used refrigerator for the workshop.  For the new one, we sort of like the side-by-side layout with an ice dispenser, and it should be white, but beyond that we're open.  Consumer Reports liked the GE which was soundly trashed here, and I'm ok with that.  So from a price/performance/reliability standpoint, where should I start looking?  Thanks for the help.

Select a nice simple Whirlpool/Roper/Estate.  And be sure to buy extended service agreements, what ever you choose....

Thanks for the quick reply - I just got through grinding through the archives and was about to post that I got the message about Whirlpool, and maybe LG - I've seen those somewhere, maybe Best Buy.  Getting the extended warranty seems to be the rule now - thanks.
