      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

Maytag is auditioning for their next advertising repairman in 3 locations in the U.S.  I wonder if he is allowed to carry a samurai sword?

There is no point in having the repairman as a spokesman when there is no longer Maytag Factory Service. Maytag lost their reputation for quality, and now they are property of Whirlpool. Maytag is gone, their future is being only a decal on a Whirlpool built machine.

You said it Nick, Whirlpool should just go back to their old advertising slogan:"We promise to build and sell only good quality, honest reliable appliances and we promise to stand behind them."

Wouldn't it be great if that was 100% true? I have always liked Whirlpool appliances and they used to be the best out there. Now days they are the best by default. All the other companies (GE, frigidaire, etc) just build such low grade crap, that Whirlpool doesn't have to set the bar too high to beat them.
