Here is a video of Whirlpool's Clyde, Ohio washing machine plant, the largest washing machine plant in the world, not just the country, but the largest washing machine plant in the world.

Now that the Design 2000 direct drive top loader is phased out, they are currently building the Cabrio, the modular top loader washer and the direct drive full size Duet front load washer at this plant.

The direct drive full size Duet front load washer is a completely new design, almost exactly like a LG.

I urge everybody to at least see how the new Duets fare in relaibility before you tell your customers not to buy them.

These people need to keep there jobs here.

Whirlpool has gone to great lengths to fire the German company who was manufacturing the old generation of the full size Duet front load washers and bringing those jobs here to Clyde, Ohio.
