Whirlpool also sharply cut its full-year outlook.
The 5,000 job cuts include plant closures that have already been announced as well as new reductions, the company said.
Net earnings fell to $163 million, or $2.15 a share, from $175 million, or $2.20 a share, a year earlier.
Sales rose 1 percent to $4.9 billion.
Whirlpool said it now expects full-year profit of $5.75 to $6 a share, down from a previous forecast of $7 to $7.50.
