Whirlpool Corporation has launched an online rebate finder tool on three of its brand Web sites -- Whirlpool, Maytag, and KitchenAid brands. The appliance maker said it created the tool to help consumers navigate and make the most of the "Cash for Appliances" rebate program.

By entering a local zip code and appliance type, the online tool informs consumers of the amount of applicable state rebates through the federal program. Additionally, the rebate finder will provide information on rebates from a consumer's local utility company if available.

"Cash for Appliances" is part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, a Department of Energy (DOE) program providing nearly $300 million to fund state-run rebate programs for consumer purchases of new ENERGY STARĀ®-qualified appliances.

"The 'Cash for Appliances' program is a great incentive for consumers to purchase new, energy-efficient appliances and retire their energy draining older appliances," said Warwick Stirling, Whirlpool global director of energy and sustainability. "The rebate on the purchase of a new ENERGY STARĀ®-qualified appliance is just the beginning of the savings. Ultimately, it's an investment that will provide monthly savings on utility bills and benefit the environment through reduced energy and water use."
