Washer gave me 22 yrs. Dryer was still good as it's mileage was much lower than the washer. New stuff is tinny and no where near the quality of the previous. Warranty on door ended at 20 yr and the door started falling apart. The fridge is a Beaumark, a large retailer's store brand but I believe it was made by GE or Westinghouse, very reputable companies back then. Roofing was replaced today after 25 yrs. The problem with a new house and new appliances is everything and the roof needs replacing around 20-25 yrs. I guess I was lucky to start with good quality. I've also developed a new appreciation for my couch and chair. I paid $1500 back then and the cushions don't sag, the frame is strong and the fabric isn't showing any wear. A saleslady told me the new furniture is exactly what you pay for and that if I'm tired of the color to get mine reupholstered rather than buy new.
