I think it just depends on what you get use to working on or experienced with.
I remember hating working on front load washers when the Maytag neptune first come out. Then after they had been our for awhile and I gained some experience with them they ended up being as easy to diagnose and repair as a Whirlpool top load direct drive.
I hate brands I'm not familiar with but still see every now and then around here such as LG and GE, but with my iPad in hand and a internet connection I can fix anything.
Sometimes it takes a few trips, lots of parts and I don't make any money, but I can fix it sooner or later...
