    I partially agree with you. I have 40 homes with mostly 15 year old whirlpool appliances and they are easy to fix and parts are cheap. I carry oven ignitors and electric dryer coils in my truck. Most of my tenants never pull the exhaust vent and clean out the hose or threw away the lint filter. I have found that GE appliances are harder to get at the parts that need replacement and prices are higher. In my own homes I do have LG and Samsung Washer and dryers and have had good luck and the Samsung refrigerator has worked for 8 years but the Item maker is turned off on the bottom as its not needed. So maybe I am putting off a future problem. Lately I told my tenants that I will no longer repair their appliances and they can get them fixed or buy their own to install.

    This is great! I appreciate this deviation from Tesla as it’s still relevant to almost everyone.



  3. scottysize on May 7, 2021 at 4:48 am

    Great. So my 2 LG refrigerators I bought last year will need to be replaced when the warranty is up. Where were you last year. Lol



  4. Rammdom on May 7, 2021 at 4:48 am

    I’ve had a Samsung refrigerator for the past 5 years and its been serviced every 3 – 6 months since we bought it, Never again. Yes, thank God I did get an extended warranty and now I’m looking to buy a new refrigerator only 5 years later. Ridiculous when you spend so much.

    just one more thank you, I now have a new washing machine that does not let enough water in so I add three large buckets of warm water by hand just like I did 60 years ago. If you know of a way to adjust the water amount please let us know.

    I am from Europe and my family uses all bosch appliances and they are working fine for years. Now 11 year old washing machine broke down 5 years ago logic board was fine and we replaced it and it is working fine, also 7 year old refrigerator has not broken down once.
    I am interested if you had problems with bosch?

    Got cheated big time buying LG refrigerator and Split AC. Fridge Not at all reliable , got problems after 1 yr and worst service.Every 6 months they are charging for gas refill but no use. AC PCB was gone and they said it costs 18000. Ultimately I discarded it.



  8. salesrpg on May 7, 2021 at 4:55 am

    Can you make a video at your local Lowes or Home Depot with a walk around to give your opinion on what to buy.



  9. AndreiN on May 7, 2021 at 4:57 am

    Good to know thanks👍



  10. Jason Thiner on May 7, 2021 at 4:58 am

    My dad’s been servicing appliances for 30 years the company he works for hired a guy just for Samsung and lg appliances.



  11. VPIFT Orion on May 7, 2021 at 5:00 am

    I am in the market for a New refrigerator. Thinking of Whirlpool 4 door. Any good sujestion…



  12. Mark Lawrence on May 7, 2021 at 5:00 am

    Bought my whole Kenmore set 13 years ago and have only had to repair the dryer. Both times were easy enough for me to fix myself, good to know to keep them as long as possible.



  13. George Zahn on May 7, 2021 at 5:00 am

    Thanks Matt, great information. Definitely interested in seeing more like this (but keep the Model-3 stuff coming too).



  14. 12vgs8606 on May 7, 2021 at 5:03 am

    Really ironic that the guy doing Tesla video is dissing on EPA; if EPA did not exist, there would never be a Tesla!



  15. ArizVern on May 7, 2021 at 5:04 am

    Good Video.



  16. Cliff Roderiques on May 7, 2021 at 5:04 am

    GREAT, To Late bought new home and outfitted with mostly Samsung (Errr).



  17. Sam G on May 7, 2021 at 5:06 am

    Super helpful. My in laws had an LG fridge compressor go out. Barely found someone to work on it.



  18. Evan Harris on May 7, 2021 at 5:10 am

    Just replaced our old appliances with Maytag and KitchenAid. No problems so far. This is our second front loading washing machine and my wife does complain about an odor if she doesn’t leave the door open when not being used. You’re probably familiar with Spencer’s since you have lived in Arizona. They always seem to give good information. I think you have a very cool job.



  19. Zaphod Beeblebrox on May 7, 2021 at 5:10 am

    Tesla should make appliances



  20. radcpuman on May 7, 2021 at 5:11 am

    I have a Samsung top load washer and regular front load dryer and have had them for several years. They have worked well. The LG front load washer and dryer I had before that didn’t clean at all and the washer always smelled musty. I have an LG frig and I think I had it worked on once because the ice maker quit. It has made ice since but the ice melts together just enough that I have to open the door and bang on the ice bin to break it up (about every day). I guess it is the defrost cycle maybe doing that. Very annoying anyway. On a different note, I have a Maytag Gemini(???) range with double oven (electric). The top oven is like a pizza oven and it has a toasting feature. Now it took me a year to realize what that was but now I use it more than the regular oven. I thought about upgrading since it is looking dated but I can’t find a single double oven on the market with that feature. Anyway, great topic and look forward to more of your insights on appliances.



  21. NY on May 7, 2021 at 5:12 am

    I don’t believe you mentioned Speed Queen. I was wondering if this brand will be more reliable than the other American brands you mentioned? Aren’t most washers and dryers built with Whirlpool parts?



  22. E S on May 7, 2021 at 5:14 am

    deep dive!



  23. Daniel Varadi on May 7, 2021 at 5:18 am

    Great video.
    I guess we got lucky…the LG washer and drier we bought about 12 years ago have been extremely reliable and problem free….or maybe they were made during the golden years?



  24. Mike on May 7, 2021 at 5:19 am

    Super useful info, and backed up by my own experiences.
    I bought my place new, but it had been sitting for a couple of years unlived in. It came with high end LG appliances. The stove died, the microwave died, and the dryer needs to be reset at the breaker panel just to turn it on to this day. They wouldn’t cover any of it due to the age, despite the fact the appliances were new. Replaced stove and microwave with Samsung. Stove still working, microwave falling apart (brittle plastic). Replaced dishwasher with KitchenAid even though old one was fine. So far the new dishwasher is silent, running well, but not washing as well as the old clunker.



  25. CoolSilver on May 7, 2021 at 5:19 am

    High Efficiency Washers are efficient in all the ways that are Anti-Consumer. I agree it’s not good for anyone who is buying them.



  26. Dennis Schlieckau on May 7, 2021 at 5:21 am

    Thanks Matt, So stay away from Korean imports, but what about. European imports like Bosch, etc?



  27. Evelyn Hoogerbrugge on May 7, 2021 at 5:22 am

    Are you willing to answer an appliance question? I’ll ask my question and if you don’t want to give free answers, I certainly understand.
    I have a water filter in my GE refrigerator. If I get water from the dispenser in the door, it is crystal clear. If I get ice from the door dispenser, there is a lot of white sediment. I tried a glass of just water and a glass of just ice. Nothing settled out of the water, but in the glass with just ice, after the ice melted, there was a lot of white sediment in the bottom of the glass and on the sides of the glass.



  28. mikelieber1 on May 7, 2021 at 5:24 am

    Awesome new series, keep up the great work.



  29. cameron shuff on May 7, 2021 at 5:25 am

    Thank you for this topic



  30. grouponful on May 7, 2021 at 5:25 am

    Why do you do the thumb thing in the beginning?



  31. Scott Jacobs on May 7, 2021 at 5:25 am

    We just ordered. Bosch dishwasher 800 series- they told us it is made in US
    What do you think?

    Thanks



  32. Gwin Willis on May 7, 2021 at 5:27 am

    hello friends



  33. William Dean on May 7, 2021 at 5:28 am

    Ok so stay away from samsung and LG, how about German/European made appliances?



  34. RSD Wall on May 7, 2021 at 5:29 am

    What is your opinion about speed Queen laundry sets?



  35. Dirkus on May 7, 2021 at 5:29 am

    Hi, thank you for this video. I’m curious if you know how good the extended warranties that Home Depot sells are worth the money? I am looking at a GE laundry set and they have a 3 and 5 year plan. Have you done service under these plans and how does Home Depot treat the servicers that actually do the work? Thanks!



  36. Jackson Bangs on May 7, 2021 at 5:30 am

    Great video! What are your thaughts on CROSLEY refrigerators?



  37. Derek Spearin on May 7, 2021 at 5:31 am

    Perfect timing for this video. I was just looking at a Samsung refrigerator today. Thanks Matt!



  38. Sum Lau on May 7, 2021 at 5:31 am

    i believe it the fact samsung sent you wrong parts lol

    had a warranty replacement request from a samsung product two yrs ago. they sent me the wrong parts three times…

    currently, also dealing w/ a warranty claim. they cancelled my tickets four times because they claim I never emailed my proof of purchase but obviously i emailed them. so every time they had to recreate a new ticket for me…



  39. JPTech933 on May 7, 2021 at 5:33 am

    Interesting great video, appliances here in Canada about the same.. my stove is an Amana and when researching it online I discovered the parts are from Mexico, the wiring and electronics seams to be from China and it was assembled in USA.



  40. azera55555 on May 7, 2021 at 5:34 am

    My family has had samsung washer and dryer for about eight or nine years and haven’t had any problems whatsoever so maybe we just got lucky. And we haven’t had any problems with our Kitchen Aid appliances which we’ve had for about ten years.



  41. Zoltán Kárpát on May 7, 2021 at 5:36 am

    Fancy … I never owned a refrigerator with a light in it. The first and only fridge I bought 10 years ago is an LG mini fridge, still works fine. Most other appliances my family owned also worked fine for at least 10 years.



  42. Greg Collins on May 7, 2021 at 5:37 am

    Ya, same goes for TV’s except there are no domestic brands. If you can get any new TV’s to last 5 years you are doing great. Everything is basically disposable now – not made to repaired. I did TV repair for 20 years and quit it last year. Got tired of charging people $25 up front and then calling them to say its unrepairable because the parts are not available. The new LED TV’s ought to be super long lived as LED’s are supposed to be super reliable, but these designers push too much amps through them and when one of the several dozen in the back lighting gives out, boom. Very difficult to replace them and if you use the "recommended" replacement parts, you are just perpetuating the bad design. The holy grail of TV design was supposed to be getting rid of the high voltage. Old TV’s had either HV CRT’s, HV flourescent backlighting, HV plasma, etc. Always a reliability problem, but those TVs generally lasted 10 years. These plastic new featherweight LED TVs are fragile. No manufacturer I know of will sell you a replacement display panel (to fix the one your kid threw a ball at) for less than the cost of a new TV.
    You know the difference between the "1st world" and the "2nd world"? The first world has the economic strength to replace all their junky (made by the 2nd world) possessions every 5 years.



  43. Travis Romine on May 7, 2021 at 5:38 am

    Great info as usual Matt. Thanks



  44. nk g on May 7, 2021 at 5:39 am

    am from India.

    LG and Samsung customer care is even worse than the worst.

    Now German companies started showing up but their manufacturing is being done by these crap makers.. again struck..

    long gone the days of having good products



  45. Evan Harris on May 7, 2021 at 5:39 am

    Just sent this to my parents in Florida. They’re replacing their kitchen appliances.



  46. Michael Goetz on May 7, 2021 at 5:39 am

    Amazingly helpful video! Thanks so much for sharing you knowledge and experience.



  47. The Shaving Soap Channel on May 7, 2021 at 5:40 am

    Great video! Came for the Tesla content, stayed for the appliance information. We have a Whirlpool Duet front loading washer/dryer set that is about 15 years old. I had to replace the front panel of the washer about 9 years back and the water pump two weeks ago. Haven’t had to do a thing to the dryer. The wife has been trying to convince me to replace them, but after watching your video, I told her that she’s stuck with them for at least another 15 years. 🙂



  48. Craig M on May 7, 2021 at 5:41 am

    Spot on. Our Samsung fridges have been crap, especially the ice maker. Got a new fridge under warranty because they couldn’t fix. We did get the extended warranty. Whirlpool washer nothing but problems. Warranty company refunded complete cost of appliance because they said not worth fixing repeatedly. Please do more of these types of videos.



  49. Fabian La Maestra on May 7, 2021 at 5:42 am

    this is an excellent video Matt. Thank you for doing it. May I ask if you could please do a similar video focusing on why there are so few induction cooktops in the United States? When I visited Europe they were everywhere. it seems like the induction-top ovens that are available in the United States are very expensive. Could you talk about this or suggest which one you would get if you wanted to replace a gas oven with full induction?



  50. Dave Webster on May 7, 2021 at 5:42 am

    Thanks for this one Matt,

    Can we get an update on your ebikes at some point when you have some time.
