People are rehabbing their old appliances and running them as long as they can.

Two reasons:

-the recession
-the new “green” Energy Star appliances suck!

I hope to keep my 14 y/o Maytag “classic” washer til I die.

Both my (adult) daughters have dumped their fancy front loaders they bought when they got married in favor of the old reliable.

You got that right. Those Energy Star appliances are garbage. We bought a highly rated Whirlpool dishwasher a couple of years ago to replace our old cheap, reliable Kenmore whose racks had begun to rust. Replacement cost of a single rack was more than we paid for the whole thing. Anyway, the $800 WHirlpool was a piece of crap.

When it didn't work well, I checked the manual. It said, "If the dishes aren't coming clean, Run the water on your faucet until the water is hot." I'm not kidding. Our water bill went up $10 a month.

We ended up replacing that piece of crap Whirlpool with a Miele after two years because my wife hated it so much. As God is my witness the woman has never complained about another appliance in all the years we've been married. I'll never buy a Whirlpool again.
