They don't make them how they used to!

Remember when washing machines lasted for 10 or 20 years?  They were tanks!  Not anymore.   In 2007 we got a Frigidaire washer and dryer at Universal Appliance.  They are both absolute lemons.  The dryer had a strange groove in the tub that ATE our clothes. I called the people I bought it from to fix it. They charged me an arm and a leg...and didn't fix it.  It ruined more clothes than I can count.  Shortly thereafter, the washing machine stopped spinning. In all, we've sunk about $500 into these machines.

What makes me even more mad is these "disposable appliances fill our landfills each year.  Sad.  What's a family to do? When did it become ok for American brands to crank out such crumby products?
