Cleaning a Whirlpool Gas Range
Whirlpool Gas Range Model WFG374LVS1 - Complaint
This gas range/stove is part stainless steel and a black porcelain enamel cooktop with 5 burners, model number: WFG374LVS1. I bought this gas range/stove in Lowe's for a total of $729.71 on 10/26/2010. My main complaint with this gas range is the cleaning of the cooktop, gas burner caps, grills and pan. It has been very frustrating in keeping this stove clean. I have all the proper cleaning equipment/supplies as recommended by the manufacturer. The burner caps have spots on them that look like discoloration. The base of the burner looks like it is burned. The cooktop itself has scratches or 'things' that look exactly like scratches. It has 'water spots' or something similar to water spots that do not come out. I have tried everything but it leaves a white streak all over the stove once you applied the Whirlpool appliance cleaner. It is very hard to get rid of the white streaks. I used their microfiber cloth and it takes about 15-25 minutes to get rid of the white marks/streaks. I contacted the manufacturer and was told that there is nothing that they can do and then prior to calling they had sent me an email telling me how to clean the stove. I already have the manual that shows you how to clean the stove. I had another gas stove prior to this for almost 15 years and I never spent that much time cleaning it. I also did not have the problems above. The only problem I had was that some of the paint had come off and the gas needed to be calibrated!!
