Whirlpool has decided to put an end to it's discounted tumble dryer offer for people that own model s affected by the safety notice on them and, that's not exactly going over well in some camps. Government included.
In a statement Whirlpool said that "Previously, consumers who wished to upgrade their products to a newer model were offered the additional option of a brand-new dryer in exchange for a small contribution to the total cost. The scheme has now ended due to a fall in demand."
Why Whirlpool bothered to remove it we don't have a clue as, after all, if nobody was eligible or taking the offer up then what harm was it doing?
Yet by removing it and being rumbled it's stirred a potential hornet's nest, again for the company.
So the way we read this, not many people are likely to care really, fewer will likely be affected by it but, it makes a good story.
