Purchased a whirlpool washer model # wtw4950xw2 in jan 2012 - did not take extended warranty - machine stopped spinning and than would not function at all in feb of 2013 (1 month after warranty expired ) . Sears and whirlpool both offered no help at all .
I found numerous complaints online after the whirlpool rep had advised me that there was no problems or recalls with this model . the washer cost 499.00 plus tax and delivery fee . the repair cost is 262.00 , or i can have it fixed and warranty extended for 1 year - cost of 326.99 , or i can toss it and replace with a new machine (which makes the most sense ) . Could not even get a discount on the part (they do make money on parts and labor charges) .
Washing machine should not suffer a terminal defect after 1 year .
