If you provide your serial number, I can tell you when it was made. Then I can let you know if it's under warranty or not. Of course, you really may need to prove purchase with a receipt, but Whirlpool is pretty good about working with people.
I'm in live chat, but your status shows offline. I'll switch this from live chat to Q and A. Please just respond at your earliest convenience. Have your model and serial number ready, and I can certainly assist you.
