I need to purchase a refrigerator and I've narrowed it down to three: A KitchenAid (made by Whirlpool), a Kenmore Elite (also made by Whirlpool) or a GE Profile. The one thing I like about the KitchenAid and Kenmore is that it uses a Pur Ultimate II water filtration system white the GE uses their own brand of water filter. They are all priced about the same. Your thoughts?

I personally wouldn't buy a GE refrigerator due to the electronic control system used on mid to top of the line models. GE's repair parts prices are also among the highest of the domestic appliance manufacturers so keeping it running down the line could be more costly as well.

The Kenmore and KitchenAid may be basically similar products although when buying Kenmore you have to call Sears for service. With KitchenAid (or any of Whirlpool's other brands), you could call any of their factory authorized service depots for service. There are usually several in any given area. That way if one couldn't come to look at a problem immediately, you might very well be able to try a different company... depending on the area you live in.

GE floor models don't hold up as well as others, I've noticed this at several retailers. And I personally stick with Whirlpool. (Their refridgerators have never let me down) However, I read many complaints about one of their slide-in ranges. I think that was at Hope that helps.
