Whirlpool - Duet Frontload Washer
Tub Bearings - Complaint
We purchased a Whirlpool Duet frontload washer 15 months ago, after the salesman repeatedly told my wife the Samsung was much the better machine. My wife explained that we had a Whirlpool machine for the past 20 years and she wanted to remain loyal! That doesn't pay!
The machine was serviced twice during the one year warranty and 3 months out of warranty the tub bearings need to be replaced. Whirlpool customer service has expained to me that 15 months is an exceptable level of reliability for their washers (I'm paraphrasing). My new machine (not a Whirlpool) with be a no frills, no electronics, low cost disposable washer!
