Whirlpool Computer Snag Still Causes Delays at Independent Appliance Firms

Product shipments have been delayed, orders have been lost and incorrect orders have been filled. Out of frustration, many small retailers have drastically reduced the number of Whirlpool products they carry.

But there will at least be plenty of room in the washer load when it gets fixed - they're running out of underwear at Fruit of the Doomed manufracturing centers.....

However, how can you fix a leaking washing machine if it hssn't spayed water yet?
