Folks have different personalities,  folks have different perspectives, therefore people are funny.

 

ie: I repaired an old beat up Maytag Neptune that had 2 previous control board replacements.  I replaced the MCU & motor kit at 10% less than BB price.   Customer sais it was better than buying new machine.   This unit has been to hell & back, in use on a oil drilling platform.      The beat up machine is showing no sign of bearing failure.

 

Saw a newer Maytag Neptune that looked like it would still be under warranty, so clean.  It has a MCU that had a heck of a surge that a relay was blown to pieces & other parts burnt.    Customer received this machine from ailing grandfather who is in a nursing home.    This unit sits in a house that is used as a fishing camp recreation.

 

Same repair same 10% off quote.   They declined repair, rather go out & buy new.   Go figure.

The sad thing is, the new appliances are worse than the old ones.

Another sad thing is I was with one of the engineers who developed the Neptune before it was introduced to the public. I pointed out the potential problem spots and the CEO told him to get it out on the sales floor and we would fix the problems in the field.  $$$$$$$ going down the toilet.
