Contacting Whirlpool support or customer service
Whirlpool customer support and customer service can be contacted via phone, email, and chat. Like most companies, Whirlpool uses Call
centers manned by agents to answer their customer inquiries. These call centers are located throughout the US and in many cases also India, the Philippines, and other
foreign countries. Whirlpool customer support agents receive basic training to support Whirlpool products and services, and have access
to customer information, purchase history, and prior customer support inquiries.
In order to answer customer inquiries, Whirlpool support agents have templated and scripted answers to common questions. If Whirlpool
agents do not know how to answer specific customer questions, they usually consult a supervisor who received further training.
Since Whirlpool can hire a limited number of support agents in any given time, often customers have to wait on hold until one of the agent is available to
take their call. To handle surges in incoming customer support calls, Whirlpool uses Interactive Voice Response Systems (IVR’s) to handle large volume of
incoming customer calls. That is one of the reasons why often customers need to wait on hold and talk to automated systems before speaking to a human representative.
How is getting help from 6YA different from Whirlpool?
6YA is a service that connects users who need technical or repair help with a professional Expert over the phone or video. All 6YA Experts have real repair experience and
are located throughout the US. The idea behind 6YA is to connect consumers at need with a real technician who is getting paid to take their call. Unlike
Whirlpool, 6YA Experts are independent contractors who do not have any access to Whirlpool customer information or purchases.
While 6YA Experts can provide effective help on any Whirlpool product or service, they do not have access to your Whirlpool account and
can’t assist with billing, or any non technical issue you have with Whirlpool.
Since 6YA is using a proprietary technology that’s connecting you to Experts in seconds, you will never be placed on hold or talk to virtual response systems. We believe
that 6YA Experts can provide professional and unbiased help, which will often be more effective than the scripted and templated answers from Whirlpool
What is 6YA’s relationship with Whirlpool?
6YA and Whirlpool are not related. While 6YA Experts can provide help and support on most Whirlpool products and services, the two
companies are not related. 6YA was created because we believe that in many cases, real professionals with years of hands on experience fixing and resolving technical issues
can provide better help than call center agents that use virtual answering services and scripted responses.
6YA is able to connect you to a repair Expert in seconds through the robust technology it created. We use several algorithms to identify the best Expert who can assist with
your particular issue, get them on the phone, and then connect you so you are never placed on hold. We strongly believe that customers who encounter technical challenges or
issues operating their products should not endure more stress and friction before getting help. On the other hand, there are so many professional repairmen with decades of
experience who can help so many customers such as yourself and generate extra cash along the way.
Our mission is to help people solve everyday problems by using technology to simplify our lives rather than add more friction.
