Hate to be the bearer of bad news but YES, you are wasting your time - here at least. You have placed personal information into a public forum (dangerous at best) and even if I owned all of Whirlpool, I would have no idea what specific job you were seeking and couldn't help you.
Don't assume that the HR department (of any company) is going to spend time reading this forum and contact you. If you want employment, you have to contact the employer yourself and you will likely be only one of thousands of people who are doing so, especially for a large operation like Whirlpool.
If you worked there before, I suggest you call your old supervisor. He/she should be able to tell you what the chances are and how to reapply. Good luck.
