We've loved our kitchen aid appliances. The maxima line of washer/ dryer is the commercial line from maytag and have also been great.

can't go wrong with Kitchenaid by Whirlpool
Whirlpool appliances models are yesterdays Kitchenaid models without the extra warranty
Stay away from anything GE

I run a service co in Tennessee and do warranty work for Whirlpool Kitchen Aid Frigidaire and others. You cant go wrong with the Kitchen Aid line, very few service related issues.

Having owned many new to relatively new homes over the last 20 years and 3 currently I've found that most all appliances are disposable or need repairs inside of 10 years. Even top of the line Kitchenaid by Sub Zero.
No experience with the real high end equipment though. IMO find the best price on whatever appliances you need and realize the savings up front. And don't pay extra for "designer" features. No one needs 10 modes for the dishwasher or 20 different types of washes for a washing machine.

When we built 3 years ago, we did the upper mid level dishwasher from KitchenAid. Functions great, but the noise drives me nuts. We do use the 4 hour delay so it starts after we're asleep. We have an open kitchen, dining room, living room floor plan so maybe I'm being too critical with the noise. If I do it over again, I'd upgrade to a quieter model.

Great looking home!
