Sears has a mass amount of competition against stores such as Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, Amazon and other retailers who sell appliances.
After 100 years, Whirlpool will no longer be sold in Sears due to demands making the appliances difficult to sell. This relationship between the two started in 1916 when Whirpool started making two types of wringer washer for Sears.
Sears and Whirlpool are ending their partnership immediately and Sears will also pull floor products from Whirlpool in subsidiaries such as Maytag, KitchenAid and Jenn-Air.
Sears said that it would sell off the remainder of its Whirlpool inventor but, its stores will now only sell its Kenmore products and other brands like LG, Samsung, GE, Frigidaire, Electrolux and Bosch.
