Our Industry-Leading Product Safety System
As the world’s leading manufacturer of major home appliances, product safety is at the forefront of everything we do at Whirlpool Corporation.
From the first washing machine that was powered by hand, to the latest connected technology, nothing matters more to us than earning and keeping the trust of the people using our products.
Through our consistent and proactive approach, Whirlpool Corporation has achieved a strong consumer safety record for decades. Our approach includes rigorous safety designing and testing before our products go to market, and monitoring the safety of our products after they are in your home.
The well-being of our consumers comes first, and we swiftly and purposefully take action in the rare instance a safety issue comes up.
The product safety system of Whirlpool Corporation has long been recognized as industry-leading and has been benchmarked by other companies as a way to improve their own practices. Even with that track record, Whirlpool Corporation is in constant pursuit of improving our products and systems.
Our safety policies, procedures, and guidelines are grounded in transparency, and many times go above and beyond regulatory requirements – while advocating for tougher industry standards.
From our company’s senior leaders through every one of our 78,000 employees, safety is and will always be our top priority.
