My dad always says older washing machines are better than newer washing machines is that true? Or is he just old fashioned?

We have a washing machine that I think is from the 1990's. It's a Kenmore and it's made out of thick metal. He always says "newer washing machines aren't good. They're made out of plastic and aren't as high of quality". He's been saying that for more than 10 years.
