Roper is Whirlpool, is Amana. Just bought an Amana - had a problem registering on line, had to call them to correct an entry. Guess who I talked to? Whirlpool in Benton Harbor, MI.
A while back, wife ras replacing appliances in kitchen. We bought a Frigidare refrig... Got it home, only to find it was a Electrolux product. That company is not too popular around here after thay abandoned thousands of employees and moved operations to Mexico.
