Heard during Whirlpool's talk at a consumer conference

Whirlpool (WHR -0.5%) reaffirms its FY13 EPS guidance of $9.90 to $10.10 which has a midpoint below the consensus analyst mark of $10.09. The conservative estimate falls in line with recent reports of pricing pressure in appliances.

The company's longer-term vision includes revenue growth of 5% to 7% annually on its view that the U.S. housing market only sits in the "early stages" of a prolonged recovery.

    Just don't buy a Whirlpool product. After the one year warranty expires, the product is basically abandoned. Zero customer support.
    Very poor engineering. The Korean companies, Samsung and LG, are running circles around Whirlpool, GE, et al.
