I had a Maytag that lasted for over 50 years. When I got it it was 27 years old and it lasted me another 26 years.  It ran fine and I used it at least once a week.  It was even in our basement when it flooded then froze, and it still ran fine.

I have a Kenmore washer and dryer.  They have served me well.  But that Maytag sounds like a real workaholic.

Depends on what you like.  Everybody will tell you something different.  I know people who have had a Roper for years and it works great.  But it is the cheapest brand so a lot of people swear it is junk.

I'm in the market for an inexpensive but good washing machine too. So thanks in advance for any and all suggestions. :)

I have a Maytag and love it.  It is  only 3 years old, but my last Maytag lasted over 35 years and was still working, but I felt it was time to upgrade and get a new washer and dryer.

I have been using my current Whirlpool High Efficiency Washer & Dryer for about 11 years now and have had no problems with either one of them.
Have a wonderful day!

I think if you ask people in general you will get different brands because everyone has had a different experience.  I would go on different ratings sites and see which brand they are giving better ratings.  If nothing else, call up several appliance repair places and ask which brands seem to break down most often. Maybe you will get a consensus there.

Get the brand at a store that you know going to be there for awhile. Big appliance think about lemon insurance, I got a new machine that away once.

yah know i have never understood this question.. as well as what is the best fridge.. or dishwasher.. doesn't all appliances no matter what the brand do the same thing?? Don't get me wrong.. i am sure their may be a diffrence... I just don't know it.. or understand the question behind it.. because to me a washer is a washer.. the brand doesn't matter to me as long as my clothes come out nice and clean :)
