Whirlpool and Maytag spare parts - why you need to be very careful what you buy

With the boon of internet sales there are a lot of websites claiming to sell "genuine" Whirlpool parts. So how do you know if the parts you're buying are genuine or not, and does it really matter? aren't they all the same...............

Ask yourself why you bought your whirlpool or Maytag appliance in the first place - was it because it was the cheapest brand on the market? No. Most likely you bought a Whirlpool or a Maytag because you place a high value on Quality. And you chose well. Whirlpool and Maytag are some of the most robust and reliable machines available - built the way they used to make them.

"only a Whirlpool part is a Whirlpool part"

So surely the last thing you want is to have cheap components in your Whirlpool or Maytag appliance.  Remember - a chain is only as strong as its weakest link and only a whirlpool part is a whirlpool part.

Let us give you an example - Whirlpool Automatic washing machines use a rubber coupling to drive the motor to the gearbox. This purpose of this rubber is to flex when its loaded, which stops excessive load on the motor.  There are plenty of after-market brands of this coupling around. But many of them are made of inferior rubber, which can be too hard and does not flex enough. We have seen motors that have burnt out because an inferior coupling was fitted to the machine. is that really worth the few dollars you might save?

So our advice is - don't risk it. Put a Maytag part in your Maytag appliance and put a Whirlpool part in your Whirlpool appliance. And the only way to guarantee you're doing that is to buy from an Authorised Whirlpool Parts Distributor.
