WHIRLPOOL CORPORATION REPORTS FOURTH-QUARTER

AND FULL-YEAR 2010 RESULTS

BENTON HARBOR, Mich., February 2, 2011 — Whirlpool Corporation (NYSE: WHR) announced today fourth-quarter net earnings of $171 million, or $2.19 per diluted share, compared to $95 million, or $1.24 per diluted share reported during the same period last year. Fourth-quarter adjusted diluted earnings per share(1) totaled $2.11 compared to $1.67 in the prior year. Sales of $5.0 billion increased 4 percent from the fourth quarter of 2009.

Full-year 2010 adjusted diluted earnings per share(1) totaled $9.65, compared to $5.01 in the prior year.
