The good news is the Whirlpool repairman was able to come today instead of Wednesday as originally scheduled.
The other good news is that he had the part it needed and the fridge is fixed!!! Yahooooooo! :-)
The bad news is the part that needed to be replaced was electrical and therefore, NOT covered by the warranty after all, so we’re out $180. [insert jaw hitting the floor here]
As Charlie Brown would say, “Uuuuuuuuuugh!”
