Wisconsin-based American Queensway Inc., which installed the IPSO Big Mac triple-load washer ...
... the washing machine was designed with two safety features, neither of which worked


Girl lost her right hand due to a Washing machine accident during the AGITATE cycle
when she was only 9 years old in 1998.

White-Westinghouse Washer manufactured by White Consolidated Industries Inc.,
owned by Sweden's Electrolux.

An Electrolux spokesman, said the design change that eliminated the safety switch
was actually made to add a different switch to lock the lid during the spin cycle of the washers.
