It’s the Parts, Stupid! July 28, 2006Posted by gordonwatts in life.
The day Paula went into labor our 4 month old washing machine died. I should have realized at the time this was evidence that Paula was about to go into labor. Oh well, 20-20 hindsite. Today it was finally repaired. It was free, of course, because we’ve not hit the Whirlpool guarantee yet, but they printed out the value of the repair anyway. The gearbox failed — a simple replacement. Used about 1 hour of a tech’s time. Cost? Would have been $100 less than the original cost of the washer!
Just like a car!
And the whole time the guy kept saying how high quality the Whirlpool washers were. 🙂
