This does not surprise me a bit. This company was going to fail sooner or later. In 2005 their initiative was to get rid of all small dealers, just like the automotive dealers were done. They treat their employees like dirt and dictate beyond belief. Most employees that work for this company hate their jobs. There is so much greed from the upper management and they spend like they are rich. They spend money on partying and drinking on the expense of the poor American dealers. They could keep a few employees if the upper management was just willing to cut out the parties. They make promises to the dealers to preform and then at the end figure ways to not pay them based on a sales rebates. They hire unqualified internal management whom have lied and say they have a degree but do not, causing employees disruption. Their own stock forecasters tell them they had better be concerned with themselves. The products they build are crap and they do not stand behind their product. They screw the american public every way they can. It is about time to see them sink and hurt a little at they way they treat their dealers. GO WHIRLPOOL........How to make a home run!!!!!! Better run from yourselves.....
