J.D. Power just released its customer satisfaction survey of over 21,000 shoppers who bought major appliances in the past year. The results are broken down by type of appliance like refrigerators, washers, etc. The top-ranked manufacturer in most categories was Samsung. This is contrary to data from Consumer Reports that suggest that LG is a much more reliable brand than Samsung. JDPA's survey was conducted shortly after purchase and thus before most appliances go on the fritz. The JDPA survey also ranked retail stores selling major appliances.
