Anyone here sell Appliances? My dishwasher packed it in, and I believe the fridge will be next.. So I'd like to replace them along with the stove.
I live in a condo with 14 year old, white, appliances right now, I renovated everything a year ago so I figure I'll replace them with stainless steel.
I'm looking at fridges with bottom freezers. Unsure if I should get the glass top stove or stick with coils. I know glass top is the cool thing to get, Will it get me more money when I sell or will new buyers even care?..
Anyone have input as to what brands are Superior? I've been looking at Maytag at Coast Wholesale, I plan on getting the extended warranty on all the pieces...
p.s If you sell appliances shoot me a pm
Fuh-coffee we will go
I myself have had great luck with Kenmore. A lot of the major brand labels relabel their products for Sears.
Chia might have some good insite on this as well. I don't want to speak for him, but I believe he specs appliances large scale for high rises and condos etc
He'll chime in here shortly.....

Gas Range/Stove are the best, if you have gas.

Maytag is much better stuff today, than it was 4 years ago, and Coast is a good choice for "that" brand.
Kenmore is only a brand name, they are not a manufacturer, Sears, in-house only.
So, Kenmore would encompass many major manufactures, as well as some offshore product.
Frigidaire would be, in my opinion, a leader in the value brands....if you want cheap, they're a good choice. Maytag and Whirlpool would provide a good compromise of features and quality for a slight premium.
In terms of "deals".....look in the local flyers, look on-line....there are some hot deals out there these days, but you do have to spend some time educating yourself a bit.
Bottom freezer.....yeah, pretty safe way to go, handy, many sizes and configurations, looks good, hard to go too wrong. Choose a drawer freezer, not a door.
Glass top range, yes, probably the best way to go these days, unless you are looking for really entry level appliances. Unfortunately, most manufactures have gotten rid of most the somewhat feature rich coil tops, and have transitioned to glass throughout their offering.
Regular coil ranges perform just fine, but it's getting difficult to find anything other than basic models with coil tops these days.
Extended warranties.....personal choice. My advice, water products have the higher tendency to require repairs, ie, dishwashers, washers, and perhaps a fridge that has an ice-maker. Water, electricity, and moving parts, in one machine, equate to higher service incidents.
Just a FYI, I purchased a washer & dryer through sears and I was told that they will refund your extended warranty price if you don't need the warranty. It's refunded in store credit as opposed to cash though.
