Most Reliable Appliance Brands for 2021

Service is a problem in this industry and by far the biggest department at Yale.

Other stores may tell you not to worry about it, but we logged over 37,000 service calls last year alone, and that’s just in the Boston area.

In this video you will finally learn about the most reliable brands (Sub-Zero, KitchenAid, Bosch, Wolf, Samsung, Miele, Beko/Blomberg, LG, Whirlpool, and GE) and appliances based on those 37,061 service calls logged.

You will see each brand’s service rate by percentage, best attributes and their most common problems.

In some cases, you should also not buy or consider the most reliable brands on this list depending on where you live.

The most reliable brands typically sell more reliable categories, like laundry and more basic, builder-grade appliances. However, there are some exceptions for better and even premium brands.

Some of the best brands on this list have little support available when there is an issue. So, you want to buy a reliable brand, but also find the best support.

    This is great, but I don’t see Thermador on the list. Maybe you don’t sell that brand?

    So what would you recommend over all if I want the best ? Range ,dishwasher, wall oven? I’m doing a brand new kitchen money is no object – I’m in between a subzero fridge or a true refrigeration residential. I live in New York but I would love your opinion. Also I’m probably going to be purchasing mostly from Lowe’s my sister works there and I can get a discount you’re in Boston anyway.
