Whirlpool Gas Fired Water Heater Made By American
Water Heaters Beginning With Model No. F - Complaint
CANTON, MICHIGAN -- 5 year old water heater, burner won't stay lit. Thermocoupler is the problem. $6.00 part. American built the water heater for Whirlpool. American uses a left hand threaded coupler, while the standard is right handed. Can't get the part. No one in this area carries it, and it seems this water heater part is on recall (never got a notice). I called Whirlpool, but their water heater division parts/service number has been disconnected. So I sit here on this Saturday morning with no hot water, no part and waiting for the repairman to come with a new $800 water heater to install.
Last Whirlpool appliance I will buy.
