If you're feeling generous, ask the little lady which one she'd rather use to clean your crap with.

Depends upon what kind of appliance you're talking about. Washer/Dryer? Fridge? Dishwasher? Stove? Those are just the obvious ones, both manufacturers make even more appliances than those.

My mom swears by Maytag, but you'll pay more than Whirlpool. All of my major appliances are Whirlpool and they've all worked flawlessly... Individual models of both brands are highly rated by CR, it depends upon the models you're looking at.

FWIW Whirlpool on average is one of the top two or three brands in terms of "frequency of repair" for major appliances, frequently best of all, and in most cases better than Maytag (source again is CR).

Have you considered the Sears house brand Kenmore? I think most Kenmore stuff is made by Whirlpool, which broadens your choices and sometimes Sears offers killer deals in their weekend supplements.

Isn't Whirlpool buying Maytag? Just wait a few days it will be one company making your decision moot.

I think Maytag is being bought by a Chinese company. In the not too distant future we will all be working for the Chinese.

They were going to merge these companies, but the unions were fighting about seniority issues too much with all the "maytag men" so the deal fell through.

The Chinese have dropped their offer.

I would go with Maytag. Better quality of life and better reserve schedule. They also fly better routes with longer nonstop legs. Word is they aren't going to furlough either.


Oh I'm sorry. I've mistaken this site for an aviation board.

Wouldn't be the first non-aviation thread. I just hope the original poster really wanted an answer to the question, but what it's doing in the "regionals" section is another issue.

Frederick Lewis Maytag (1857 - 1937) started the Maytag Company.
Hs son, Lewis B. Maytag, took over after him.
His son, Lewis B. Maytag, Jr., owned FL and NA.
