For the most part, large appliances are horrible even compared to what they were 10 years ago. It is all crap. Nothing is built to last more than 5-10 years no matter what you pay for it, and in fact the more complicated it is, the worse it is. It is all cheap plastic and the bare minimum of refrigeration equipment (compressor, evaporator, etc) with no thought to servicing or longevity.
I purchased a top of the line $4000 5 door Kitchenaid fridge 3 years ago. It is awful. I have replaced every motherboard (5 of them), a wire harness, and some other stuff for about $1000 in repairs, and it still doesn't cool consistently all the time. You have to pull the plug, wait, and reboot it to get it to cool. Kitchenaid just shrugs and says it is normal.
It is a very beautiful appliance, but so annoying because you never can tell when you have a freezer full of thawed food. I suspect that it will be totally dead by the 5 year mark with this track record. And I am not the only one with this problem with Whirpool/Kitchenaid fridges. There are hundreds of reports of this on the Kitchenaid feedback page.
My brother had a Samsung dishwasher that after about 6 months leaked and made his hardwood floors buckle to the point they had to be torn out. They wouldn't do a thing about it. "Sorry for your bad experience, here is $50 (or some token amount) off your next purchase!" was their response.
Everyone complains about LG and Samsung fridge icemaker issues.
I don't know what I would buy, but be ready to be disappointed in what you find out there.
