    DO NOT Purchase this Dryer
    by: Anonymous

    After owning this dryer for a year it started to make a loud rumbling noise toware the end of the cycle. We had an authorized repair person come out to figure out what was going on. After replacing the rollers and then the drum the noise is now back. Since we have now owned the dryer for 18 months Whirlpool will not stand by the warranty even though it is an ongoing problem. They have not resolved the issue and now tell us we should have purchased the extend warranty. Our previous Whirlpool dryer lasted for 22 years and then we started having issues, which is understandable. So we did not hesitate to purchase another Whirlpool. Never again! The repair people cannot figure out what is going on and now we have to pay $119.00 just to have the repair person come out again to service this piece of junk.
