When you buy a GE appliance, the initial purchase is just the beginning of your long, corporate gang rape

Hi, boys and girls! For today's excursion into Corporate Gang Rape™ excellence, we have a Frigidaire-built washing machine with a GE label slapped on it. Frigidaire parts will work in this machine just fine-- if you happened to know that it was built by Frigidaire in the first place. That's where the Master Appliantologists in the Samurai School come in.

In this example, Master Reg shows us the difference in price for two identical motor control boards for this washing machine. The only difference between them is that one comes in a GE box and the other comes in an Electrolux box... and you get to pay over $200 more for the board that comes in the GE box. And this from a company that has taken billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded bailout money. Ouch!

Go ahead and buy it and try it! No harm in doing that with RC's 365-day return policy. If it doesn't work, doesn't fix or just plain blows up, return it for a refund.

The only GE appliances that don't suck are their vacuum cleaners. Although, I've wanted to on numerous occasions, I've never told a customer that his GE appliance suck
