Appl-Tech :

The part you need is quite expensive

Appl-Tech :

Currently the part is not available from my online suppliers

Customer: Im assuming that. I live outside the U.S. So it will be impossible for them to verify the problem.
Appl-Tech :

where is the machine?

Customer: Mexico
Appl-Tech :

they are a world wide company, and I would think that you could get warranty service in Mexico

Appl-Tech :

Customer: I'll need to verify. I purchased the unit in the states and had it shipped here. Some companies wont honro warranties unless the product was purchased here.

The local tech from KA will be came to take a look. Zero help. What I'd like to do is get a description/part # to order part in US and have it sent to me.

The part number is W10219462
I would just google the part number "whirlpool W10219462" and see if you can get it locally. Otherwise you will have to call the distrubutors and ask if they ship internationally. Many do, but I still try to work with Whirlpool on the warranty, it should be covered at no charge.
