What some may not get is that some of the older refrigerators although they may use more energy, they don't break in five or six years and go directly into the dump. My current refrigerator is at least twenty years old and although I hate the top freezer (it was my Mom's) it is still humming along.
More than I can say of my six year old big $$ Maytag front loader washing machine that just cost me $250.00 for a control board that I replaced.
