I have 7 yr old Kenmore elite large capacity washer and dryer. Washer is top loading with agitator (the agitatorless were just coming out then) and I have a gas dryer. My In-laws bought them for us and I did not want to ask them to spend to much--so what we have is the middle of the line (knobs instead of digital controls etc...). So far I've had to have the washer fixed 2x and the dryer once. Other than that, no issues. Can I expect 15+ years from these (like you used to be able to expect from major appliances)?
FWIW, I also have a kenmore fridge that is only 7 years old and will probably not see 10.
