Whirlpool - Seal around the door is very badly torn
Whirlpool front washer - Complaint
BENSOM, MICHIGAN -- Seal around the door is very badly torn and caused the washer to leak all over my laundry room floor.
This appears to be common complaint.
To us, this happened shortly after our warranty ran out. Dissapointing for a high end product but we did not have extended warranty. So we sucked it up called a Whirlpool remair man to come and fix it. Cost us over $300. Barely fixed for 2 months and the same seal is torn again. This appears to be a defect with the manufacturer especially after I saw so many complaints on this. I called Whirlpool to see if they would waive the cost of repair since there seemed to be genuine problem with the product. They refused. I am sure once enough people speak up about this problem, they will wake up and make mends. In the meantime they are having a great time from the repairs on their defective parts.
