It's probably a closeout model. What gets me is most of the repairs on this machine cost almost that much.

*************

Why is that a concern?

If the consumer got a new washer for much less than usual-----power-to-him/her.

Repair pricing is not affected by that.

To win a prize of a new washer at the company Christmas party raffle for example, (free new front load washer) does not arbitrarily compel me to lower my prices for service.

Just ain't gonna happen & therefore I don't lose sleep over it.

Not really.

Dreadful retail environment. New 2011 models are arriving,2010 inventory must be pushed out.

I want to thank both Frigidaire and Whirlpool for totally eliminating the bottom front access panel on the front loading washers. Now if we have to do something as simple as cleaning out the drain pump, we have to remove the entire front panel and if the dryer is stacked ontop of the washer, oh well, sorry Mrs. Jones, we need to reschedule the job for 2 people.

If the unit is still under warranty, do you think the manufacturer will pay a higher labor rate for the job? Come on, don't be rediculous, they do this to save themselves manufacturing costs. :thanks::wallbash:

I used to be a Whirlpool supporter, but them days are gone.

First, they singlehandedly destroyed 2 perfectly good nationwide service companies, Whirlpool factory service and Maytag factory service.

Second, they started this rediculous process of calling for approval before we can use a control board.

Third, they replaced most of the front load washers models with new models from the Mexican plants. The mexican built units are total garbage.

And, they are so clueless that they would change a design to make repairs far more difficult, and not possible for 1 man to repair if the unit is stacked.

Stupid Bastards...
