Is Whirlpool no longer any good?
« on: February 23, 2009, 09:59:19 AM »
I thought whirlpool was suppose to be such a good company.

With all the problems everyone seems to be having with there whirlpool appliances and all the talk about how there stock is dropping like a rock I have to wonder if they are all that great.

Is whirlpool turning into one big cesspool?

I would say Whirlpool is one of the best appliance manufactures.
Hope I still feel the same way about them ten years from now. :)
Hope you find our site helpful.

A lot of it has to do with the current credit situation, their relationship with Sears, and a host of problems in Brazil right now.

Whirlpool is rock solid. I would be willing to say Whirlpool will straighten out Maytag and return it to the status it once was.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL

Whirlpool has already shut down the factories that made the "Dependable" machines. I believe they shut down all Maytag factories & are now being made in Mexico. If you look at the new Amana washers they are Whirlpool with a label on it saying Amana. I think they butchered the company. Using the name for sales & make a buck! Remember how good Kitchen Aide was before Whirlpool took over?

 

Whirlpool should just stick to making fridges
