Whirlpool - Duet Washer: Bearings Shot After 14 Months!
Whirlpool Duet Washer - Complaint
My $1,000+ duet washer has crapped out after 14 months of light to moderate home use. The bearings are shot. If you haven't experienced it, the washer sounds like an airliner taking off every time it goes into extract. It extracts about 5 or so times per load. Not good. Soon, the bearings will just seize.
As I do some research, I am realizing it's not an anomaly. It's fairly common. Bearings seize because the metal from which they are constructed is poor and they loose their shape. Absolutely lame for $1,000 washer. What's worse, they don't stand behind their products.
I WILL NEVER BY ANOTHER WHIRLPOOL PRODUCT OF ANY SORT! EVER!!
