Ancient Whirlpool washer began making strange noises and then stopped working. Called MWAW Friday. Knowledgable agent on the phone. Transparent about costs and process. Took preliminary info and forewarned the item might not be repairable. Appointment Monday. Tech Denis was delayed, called to advise, called again when on his way. Wore a mask, used gloves, respectful of pandemic circumstances. Reviewed 'symptoms'. Did a careful examination. Found and demonstrated the problem (drum bearing worn = repair would be too expensive relative to cost of replacing the unit.) This crew is straightforward, reliable and cost-effective. Highly recommended.
