The new up-to-50% tariff on washing machines, to protect Whirlpool, raised my eyebrows. At first glance one imagines it'll raise the price of washing machines in the US by 50%.
We have a Whirlpool front-load washer (OK, actually Maytag, owned by Whirlpool), and plan to buy the matching dryer. Does the tariff cover dyers? Will they go up 50%? No, according to the "201 Cases" document.
Hmm, what about washer-dryer combo units? Whirlpool has five factories in Mexico, do they have to pay the tariff? Questions.
