Whirlpool takeover of Maytag, Amana, Jenn AIr, Magic chef

Anyone remember the Kitchenaid acquisition back in the 80's that was smooth (not) compared to this.
Lots of questions not many answers yet.....
2 dishwasher platforms, do they keep Jackson TN going or is it on the block?
Range platforms what happens to them?
SXS refrig platforms are they going to scap the Amana platform? (The Maytag platform was hardly any good so who cares about it)
Maytag/Amana washer platforms gone!
Whirlpool not telling you the fate of certain platforms (confirming that they will stay) you can rest assured that that they are gone and do not want to tell us their fate.
Even though Maytag had slipped quite a bit it was still nice to have a legit competitor in the Market Place

I would say we will be in better shape because eventually we will have to carry less parts on our vans.

I do wish Whirlpool would make new washers that are actually Maytag and not just the same old Whirlpool design with a new faceplate, but I'm sure anything is better than the Maytags of recent years.
Hell... I'm not even a repair guy and I can replace agitator dogs and motor couplings until the cows come home.

Why do you want Whirlpool to redesign the Whirlpool direct drive top loader washer? It is the easiest washer to repair, with very few moving parts with as little tools as possible.
It is also the most reliable machine on the market today. It doesn't have triple lip seal and tub bearing problems , it's the easiest machine to replace the gearcase on, and has the least number of "off balance" problems of any top load washer on the market today.
