Whirlpool / whirlpool washing machine model wtw4815ew0, serial no. c51832777

United States

Dear Whirlpool, I am writing this in regards to a washing machine model number WTW4815EW0 serial number
I purchased the washing machine on behalf of my aging and ill parents in April of 2015. My father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease 4 years ago and my mother had a stroke seven years ago and has been an invalid for five years. My sister and I care for my parents along with a caregiver. My parents purchase their first automatic Maytag washing machine in 1971. When I purchased the whirlpool washing machine I was told that it was manufactured under the same company that Maytag is manufactured. I was satisfied with this and also knowing the Whirlpool name I felt confident in purchasing this appliance. The machine worked like a charm up until 2 weeks ago. It started to make a loud noise that progressively got worse during the spin cycle. Today I had my very reliable appliance repair man come out to take a look at the washing machine. He told me that the ball bearings in the transmission have gone bad. he said it would not be worth repairing the machine. I feel that we were sold a lemon at my local Home Depot store in Lake Zürich Illinois. I feel this situation is very unfair. Given my parents situation it would be very expensive for me to purchase a brand-new washing machine in only 2 1/2 years for them. I look forward to your response and I am hoping you will have compassion when making your decision.
Sincerely submitted by Susan
