My Kenmore dryer drum light has burned out. While locating a replacement Walmart had it for $79.25!
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Whirlpool-Light-Bulb-22002263/40105119
LOL,!
do the web admins even pay attention to the pricing?

I ordered off Amazon for $8.00.

I've seen Amazon and other retailers have things priced like the peso was taking a nose dive. It's usually some third party seller on Amazon but not always.

Its something weird going on. Even at $8 is crazy for a small bulb.
