Note: Our brand list (follow above link) is one of the most comprehensive lists available online. It far surpasses both of Wikipedia’s  related pages that appear on Google’s results for appliance brand list. The Wikipedia page “List_of_major_home_appliance_manufacturers” is not helpful for anyone seeking a brand list, because (Wikipedia) does not list brands, only manufacturers. In this day and age, many brand names have been consolidated under singular corporate entities (as you can find in the table below).   Also the other Wikipedia page: “Home_appliance_brands page” is quite short and incomplete (for example “Amana” and many other basic american brands are not listed there either)

Which corporation(s) owns the most popular appliance brands in the US?

Fact: Whirlpool owns many well known appliance brands as you can see in the table below

Also, GE is in the process of being sold to Electrolux ! See more below on this page

 

It might be surprising to discover that many historic brand names in the US have either merged or were purchased  through mergers and acquisitions and now many independent brands are now owned by larger corporations: “corporate dominance” Whirlpool currently owns many of these well known independent brands as you can see below.

Kenmore is normally made by other manufacturers and not Sears! if the model number starts with 110. or 106. it is a Whirlpool brand. See more below

Most well known US appliance brands are currently owned by Whirlpool after mergers, acquisitions and brand losses/failures.

It appears that Google is in agreement that Whirlpool dominates. A Google search for the following keywords: “corporate ownership of appliance brands” the very first result was a wikipedia entry for Whirlpool

Fact:  3 corporations have dominated the until recently: Whirlpool plus other 2 corporations: GE and Electrolux. But as of September 8, 2014 “GE appliance” is now set to become part Electrolux!
