There are very few major appliance manufacturers left in the appliance industry and yet there are dozens of brand names in the marketplace. It can be confusing.
Over the years, the larger companies have purchased the smaller ones and have continued to sell appliances under the old established names that consumers have known and purchased for years. Often these appliances are significantly the same as the "major line" that the current owner produces with a few minor changes to distinguish them.
To help you find the parts you need, we have compiled a list of the current major manufacturers and the brand names associated with them from the past, as well as the ones they produce and sell today. A word of caution however, as over the years the same brand names could have passed through multiple companies and also be used differently in Canada than the United States.
