Inglis is a division of Whirlpool in Canada.
The phone number to contact them is 1-800/807-6777.
If you cannot get any results from talking to them I would recommend that you call Whirlpool at 1-800/688-2002
They probably make a Whirlpool branded washer of the same design with a beefier handle.
They would be the only ones that would know that.
Hi Robert. Thanks for your response. In your opinion and being as we have had the unit for 3 years, how do you think they would respond? Like maybe "pound sand" :)
I would think that the repetitive nature of the failure and the fact that it is on backorder would speak for itself. Try Inglis first and then try Whirlpool corporate. Somebody has to know something about it and have an alternative.
I know, from experience, that higher quality Whirlpool parts will fit on most Inglis models.
Again thanks for your help! Ya know it is so frustrating. So tell me, now that I paid with my my master card ($38.?) can I/we ask more questions about other techie stuff?
Sure. I will help if I have the knowledge at hand, lol
perfect! Where are you at anyway? We are in Peachland, in the Okanagan Valley. Carolyn. ps how do I log in next time?
I am in Texas. Just use the link in your email to get back in to this area. The link will appear about 15-20 minutes after you close this chat by clicking accept. It may go to your spam folder so check there. I look forward to helping you again in the future.
Whoo hoo! Hey will you back us up if I start a class action law suit (kidding)
I will give you a bonus if those corporate giants give me some satisfaction!
I can't jump on that bandwagon but I bet you could find a few people with a couple of internet posts, lol.
