Smaller Major Appliance Makers Get Best Customer Satisfaction Scores: A recent report from the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) published on ApplianceMagazine.com notated that smaller Major Appliance makers get best customer satisfaction scores. In 2011, the Appliance Industry saw a marginal retreat in the customer satisfaction level which dropped to 81 point mark. A good and consistent score, as the customer satisfaction level has been at or above 80 for the past fifteen years. The rankings look at companies making washers, dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, ranges, and ovens. Of the Major Appliance Manufacturers today, the index gave top ranking to Whirlpool Corporation, with 82 points, followed by General Electric with 79 points, Electrolux with 78 points. Through their evaluations and rankings, ACSI has determined that smaller manufacturers of major appliances have done better at satisfying customers. Congratulations Whirlpool, GE, and Electrolux, keep up the good work!
