Whirlpool is also believed to manufacture more appliances in the U.S. than any other brand, and they also claim that a higher percentage of their U.S. sales of appliances are manufactured in the U.S. than any of Whirlpool's top competitors. Whirlpool has actually moved some production back to the U.S. from Mexico and elsewhere, and they have stated a desire to produce products in the country where they sell them wherever feasible.

In all likelihood, the Whirlpool manufacturing facility in Clyde, Ohio is the largest laundry (washer & dryer) manufacturing facility in the World.

Founded by the Upton brothers in 1911, Whirlpool grew to be a major manufacturer in the post WWII war years. In the 70's and 80's, they purchased KitchenAid and then acquired N.V. Philips' European appliance business which helped make Whirlpool a major factor in appliances globally.

With the purchase of Maytag, and its Jenn-Air and Amana brands in 2005, Whirlpool became the largest appliance manufacture in the world.
