Whirlpool / I hate this stupid thing

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I am just so angry about this brand new $2000 plus combination oven and microwave I could just scream. I have never had occasion to replace one of these, so I had no idea the 'questions' to ask--but bet you would never think to ask this either. "Does the oven make noise while you cook?" No, one would never know to ask this--but now you know. There is a fan that runs the entire time you use this oven. NO, it is not a convection oven. It is a regular oven with what is known as "Accubake." As soon as you turn the oven on, on comes a fan. A fan which not only makes noise but blows hot air out of the top and out of the bottom of the oven. Lovely. After you turn off the oven, the fan continues to blow until the oven is completely cooled off. I am talking OVEN and not MICROWAVE. That I would expect to "hear" - but an oven? Never. I called Whirlpool the 2nd day after installation-they said this is normal and ALL wall ovens now do this. They all have fans. A 'safety feature' for idiots who have left their ovens on and warped their cabinets, etc. Be sure you do not buy a wall oven (or any oven maybe?) without having a demonstration first. Buyer BEWARE. This is one annoying design flaw if ever there was one and I am STUCK STUCK STUCK with what I call the "singing oven." I was forced to give up my other combin. one because the microwave died. I miss it every time I turn this stupid thing on.

    Whirlpool - Very bad experience!

    Bought 250 ltr fridge. Started giving problems very soon after it was purchased. Keep calling their service desk and there are no one to responds. The experience has been so bad that I have no option but to lodge a complaint in the consumer forum.

    I bought a 6.5 KG Front Load Washing which is whirlpool Sensation Elite. Absolutely name does not replicate the functionality of the machine. I have spent Rs. 22000 on Jan 2007, within a month the machine has programming fault and display a door lock error after the pre-wash. Inspite of repeated complaints the technician could not solve the problem. I just managed to everytime reprogram it after pre-wash... wash... rinsing I used to do with hands and then program it for spinning. Then finally I got a replacement in the month of Nov 2007. The new machine had more problems... Door Lock Error, Loud Noise while spinning and my course of action for getting another machine started. This seems to be a never ending story. Later in the month of July 2008 I got a replacement of an upgraded version of the same machine Named PROFESSIONAL 6.5 Kg. Its just the model name change but the problems are still the same. On the day of installation itself the door was not fitting and digital display was throwing door lock error. So beware not to buy any product of Whirlpool and after sales service is least expected.

    Whirlpool - Terrible customer service

    Always problem with whirlpool service. They never respond to the customers and they bothered once the goods is sold. For any company customer care should be to the customer helpful or else its a waste of time giving pressure to their sales department.

    Whirlpool - Worst service for the customer

    We were complaining the service desk for repairing my washing machine (in the warranty period). Its being 2 months, but till now there is response from any of the respective executives. Worst service for WhirlPool products in Pondicherry and its nearest places, making everybody here to think about buying whirlpool products.

    Whirlpool - Not working

    We brought whirlpool washing fully automatic machine model f4.5 in 2002. Now it is not working. The service engineer says the breaks that controls the cylinder has failed. He also states that the model has been modified and the spare parts are not available. If we can't go with the machine for more than 5-6 years, then what is the use in buying the branded appliances.

    Purchase a Whirlpool hot water heater from Lowes with Flamelock. Why do they continue to sale a product that does not work. They push the 15 year warranty. However I am on my third repair on the hot water heater that is not a year old.

    I purchased Whirlpool 6th sense-Sensation-Elite Model (Front Loading Machine) on June 26th 2008.I would like to share my experience regarding Whirlpool service. On the first demo of the machine we found that the door lock LED was not glowing after 15 min of starting the machine. I told about that problem to the service man. By calling him on phone for 15 days, he told us that we want to change the entire panel board. He took up to 1 month to change the panel. After that change, the problem was not vanished. Then i called to the senior service man and informed about the worst service and the problem. Then he came for a solution to replace the machine, It took 2 months from the date of purchase to replace it. After that struggle, we used the machine for just one month, again we got another major problem-Outlet water leakage in the machine. I had lodged a complaint with their customer care about water leakage (Outlet water was leaking outside of the machine). 25days and still no being has attended the call or bothered to inform. I have till date followed it up to 25-30 times with the customer care centre (this is the only face they have for service, no local service centre contact details are available anywhere). The customer care executives promptly utter what has been taught to them and add another counter to the already register call. They commit that some of their "SENIORS" will communicate back but that commitment is never fulfilled. I can name few of the customer care executives and their seniors but it will be of no use as it is not their fault. They are victims of a bigger corporate policies and strategies. Still i didn't get the good reply from the service man.

    My strong suggestion is don’t go for any Whirlpool products.

    Luckily we have a friend who is a plumber. When we read all the garbage on the internet AFTER trust the salesman at Lowe's, we ripped out the Whirlpool junk and took it back to Lowes. We stood in the front of the store with the heater and a stack of these kinds of blogs from the internet. While the guy in the plumbing department told us they were on a recall (we found out later there was a class action lawsuit filed on them) when we went to buy a new thermocouple, the store manager acted like she had no idea. We did get a refund. I will not shop at Lowes again.
