Buy The Extended Warranty On Whirlpool Front Loading Washer
Whirlpool Duet Front Loading Washer
If you buy a Whirlpool Washer, buy the extended warranty. Our washer started giving error codes 17 months after purchase. When I called the extended warranty company it took a week to get a repairman out for service, he had to order the pressure switch from the warranty company, it was back-ordered (that is code for - this part fails a bunch, so we cannot keep it in stock.) We are going on three weeks without a washer.
Only purchase a Whirlpool, if you buy the Extended Warranty and live near a laundry.
