The products subject to these orders are currently classifiable under subheading 8450.20.0090 of the Harmonized Tariff System of the United States (HTSUS). Products subject to these orders may also enter under HTSUS subheadings 8450.11.0040, 8450.11.0080, 8450.90.2000, and 8450.90.6000.

Examples include those with a pin in the center of the head as a ‘‘center pin reject’’ feature to prevent standard Allen wrenches or Torx drivers from working. 9 ‘‘Normal operation’’ refers to the operating mode(s) available to end users (i.e., not a mode designed for testing or repair by a technician). 10 Id.

Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties equal to the amounts listed below for all relevant entries of washers from Mexico and Korea. These antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of washers from Mexico and Korea entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 3, 2012, the date of publication of the preliminary determinations,11 but will not include entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before publication of the ITC’s final injury determinations as further described below. Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all entries of washers from Mexico and Korea. We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the amounts indicated below. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. Consistent with our practice, where the product under investigation is also subject to a concurrent countervailing duty investigation, we will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit 12 equal to the amount by which the normal value exceeds the export price or constructed export price, less the amount of the countervailing duty determined to constitute an export subsidy.13 In the case of washers from Mexico, because the product under investigation is not subject to a countervailing duty investigation, the cash deposit rates 11 See Large Residential Washers From Mexico: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination, 77 FR 46401 (August 3, 2012); and Notice of Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination: Large Residential Washers From the Republic of Korea, 77 FR 46391 (August 3, 2012). 12 See Modification of Regulations Regarding the Practice of Accepting Bonds During the Provisional Measures Period in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Investigations, 76 FR 61042 (October 3, 2011). 13 See, e.g., Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Carbazole Violet Pigment 23 From India, 69 FR 67306, 67307 (November 17, 2004).

In the case of washers from Korea, although the product under investigation is also subject to a concurrent countervailing duty investigation, with respect to LG Electronics, Inc. (LG), the Department found no countervailing duty attributable to export subsidies. Therefore, we have not offset the cash deposit rate shown below for LG. However, with respect to Daewoo Electronics Corporation (Daewoo), Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (Samsung), and All Others, the Department did find countervailing duties attributable to export subsidies. Therefore, for Daewoo, we offset the AFA antidumping margin (i.e., 82.41 percent) by the countervailing duty rate attributable to export subsidies (i.e., 3.30 percent).14 For Samsung, we offset the antidumping margin (i.e., 9.29 percent) by the countervailing duty rate attributable to export subsidies (i.e., 0.06 percent).15 For All Others, we offset the antidumping margin (i.e., 11.86 percent) by the countervailing duty rate attributable to export subsidies (i.e., 0.06 percent).16 Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determinations, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this subject merchandise, cash deposits equal to the amounts indicated below.17 Provisional Measures Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months except where exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request the Department to extend that four-month period to no more than six months. At the request of exporters that account for a significant proportion of washers from Mexico and Korea, we extended the four-month period to no 14 See Large Residential Washers From the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination and Alignment of Final Determination With Final Antidumping Determination, 77 FR 33181 (June 5, 2012), unchanged in Large Residential Washers From the Republic of Korea: Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, 77 FR 75975 (December 26, 2012). 15 See Memorandum to The File entitled ‘‘Samsung Final Determination Calculation Memorandum,’’ dated December 18, 2012. 16 See Memorandum to The File entitled ‘‘Calculation of the All-Others Rate for the Final Determination of the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Large Residential Washers from Korea,’’ dated December 18, 2012. 17 See section 736(a)(3) of the Act.

Furthermore, section 737(b) of the Act states that definitive duties are to begin on the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination. Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our practice, we will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries of washers from Mexico and Korea entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after January 30, 2013, the date provisional measures expired, until and through the day preceding the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determinations in the Federal Register.

Scope of the Orders

    The products covered by these orders are all large residential 
washers and certain subassemblies thereof from Mexico and Korea.
    For purposes of these orders, the term ``large residential 
washers'' denotes all automatic clothes washing machines, regardless of 
the orientation of the rotational axis, except as noted below, with a 
cabinet width (measured from its widest point) of at least 24.5 inches 
(62.23 cm) and no more than 32.0 inches (81.28 cm).
    Also covered are certain subassemblies used in large residential 
washers, namely: (1) All assembled cabinets designed for use in large 
residential washers which incorporate, at a minimum: (a) at least three 
of the six cabinet surfaces; and (b) a bracket; (2) all assembled tubs 
\3\ designed for use in large residential washers which incorporate, at 
a minimum: (a) a tub; and (b) a seal; (3) all assembled baskets \4\ 
designed for use in large residential washers which incorporate, at a 
minimum: (a) A side wrapper; \5\ (b) a base; and (c) a drive hub; \6\ 
and (4) any combination of the foregoing subassemblies.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ A ``tub'' is the part of the washer designed to hold water.
    \4\ A ``basket'' (sometimes referred to as a ``drum'') is the 
part of the washer designed to hold clothing or other fabrics.
    \5\ A ``side wrapper'' is the cylindrical part of the basket 
that actually holds the clothing or other fabrics.
    \6\ A ``drive hub'' is the hub at the center of the base that 
bears the load from the motor.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Excluded from the scope are stacked washer-dryers and commercial 
washers. The term ``stacked washer-dryers'' denotes distinct washing 
and drying machines that are built on a unitary frame and share a 
common console that controls both the washer and the dryer. The term 
``commercial washer'' denotes an automatic clothes washing machine 
designed for the ``pay per use'' market meeting either of the following 
two definitions:
    (1) (a) it contains payment system electronics; \7\ (b) it is

the time of importation); (c) it contains a push button user interface 
with a maximum of six manually selectable wash cycle settings, with no 
ability of the end user to otherwise modify water temperature, water 
level, or spin speed for a selected wash cycle setting; and (d) the 
console containing the user interface is made of steel and is assembled 
with security fasteners; \8\ or
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ ``Payment system electronics'' denotes a circuit board 
designed to receive signals from a payment acceptance device and to 
display payment amount, selected settings, and cycle status. Such 
electronics also capture cycles and payment history and provide for 
transmission to a reader.
    \8\ A ``security fastener'' is a screw with a non-standard head 
that requires a non-standard driver. Examples include those with a 
pin in the center of the head as a ``center pin reject'' feature to 
prevent standard Allen wrenches or Torx drivers from working.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (2) (a) it contains payment system electronics; (b) the payment 
system electronics are enabled (whether or not the payment acceptance 
device has been installed at the time of importation) such that, in 
normal operation,\9\ the unit cannot begin a wash cycle without first 
receiving a signal from a bona fide payment acceptance device such as 
an electronic credit card reader; (c) it contains a push button user 
interface with a maximum of six manually selectable wash cycle 
settings, with no ability of the end user to otherwise modify water 
temperature, water level, or spin speed for a selected wash cycle 
setting; and (d) the console containing the user interface is made of 
steel and is assembled with security fasteners.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ ``Normal operation'' refers to the operating mode(s) 
available to end users (i.e., not a mode designed for testing or 
repair by a technician).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Also excluded from the scope are automatic clothes washing machines 
with a vertical rotational axis and a rated capacity of less than 3.70 
cubic feet, as certified to the U.S. Department of Energy pursuant to 
10 CFR 429.12 and 10 CFR 429.20, and in accordance with the test 
procedures established in 10 CFR part 430.
    The products subject to these orders are currently classifiable 
under subheading 8450.20.0090 of the Harmonized Tariff System of the 
United States (HTSUS). Products subject to these orders may also enter 
under HTSUS subheadings 8450.11.0040, 8450.11.0080, 8450.90.2000, and 
8450.90.6000. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for 
convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the 
merchandise subject to this scope is dispositive.

Antidumping Duty Orders

    As stated above, on February 8, 2013, in accordance with section 
735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified the Department of its final 
determinations in these investigations, in which it found material 
injury with respect to washers from Mexico and Korea.\10\ Because the 
ITC determined that imports of washers from Mexico and Korea are 
materially injuring a U.S. industry, all unliquidated entries of such 
merchandise from Mexico and Korea, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, 
are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the 
Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties 
equal to the amounts listed below for all relevant entries of washers 
from Mexico and Korea. These antidumping duties will be assessed on 
unliquidated entries of washers from Mexico and Korea entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 3, 2012, 
the date of publication of the preliminary determinations,\11\ but will 
not include entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional 
measures period and before publication of the ITC's final injury 
determinations as further described below.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will 
instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all entries of 
washers from Mexico and Korea. We will also instruct CBP to require 
cash deposits equal to the amounts indicated below. These instructions 
suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice.
    Consistent with our practice, where the product under investigation 
is also subject to a concurrent countervailing duty investigation, we 
will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit \12\ equal to the amount by 
which the normal value exceeds the export price or constructed export 
price, less the amount of the countervailing duty determined to 
constitute an export subsidy.\13\ In the case of washers from Mexico, 
because the product under investigation is not subject to a 
countervailing duty investigation, the cash deposit rates have not been 
adjusted. In the case of washers from Korea, although the product under 
investigation is also subject to a concurrent countervailing duty 
investigation, with respect to LG Electronics, Inc. (LG), the 
Department found no countervailing duty attributable to export 
subsidies. Therefore, we have not offset the cash deposit rate shown 
below for LG. However, with respect to Daewoo Electronics Corporation 
(Daewoo), Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (Samsung), and All Others, the 
Department did find countervailing duties attributable to export 
subsidies. Therefore, for Daewoo, we offset the AFA antidumping margin 
(i.e., 82.41 percent) by the countervailing duty rate attributable to 
export subsidies (i.e., 3.30 percent).\14\ For Samsung, we offset the 
antidumping margin (i.e., 9.29 percent) by the countervailing duty rate 
attributable to export subsidies (i.e., 0.06 percent).\15\ For All 
Others, we offset the antidumping margin (i.e., 11.86 percent) by the 
countervailing duty rate attributable to export subsidies (i.e., 0.06 
percent).\16\ Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the 
ITC's final affirmative injury determinations, CBP will require, at the 
same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this 
subject merchandise, cash deposits equal to the amounts indicated 
below.\17\

Provisional Measures

    Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant 
to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect 
for more than four months except where exporters representing a 
significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request 
the Department to extend that four-month period to no more than six 
months. At the request of exporters that account for a significant 
proportion of washers from Mexico and Korea, we extended the four-month 
period to no

[[Page 11150]]

more than six months.\18\ In the underlying investigations, the 
Department published the preliminary determinations on August 3, 2012. 
Therefore, the six-month period beginning on the date of publication of 
the preliminary determinations ended on January 30, 2013. Furthermore, 
section 737(b) of the Act states that definitive duties are to begin on 
the date of publication of the ITC's final injury determination.

LG Electronics USA, Inc. (collectively, LG), and Samsung Electronics 
Co., Ltd. and Samsung Electronics America, Inc. (collectively,

Electrolux Home Products, Inc. (collectively, Electrolux) (Mexico); 
dated July 13, 2012.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our 
practice, we will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of 
liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, 
unliquidated entries of washers from Mexico and Korea entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after January 30, 2013, the 
date provisional measures expired, until and through the day preceding 
the date of publication of the ITC's final injury determinations in the 
Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation will resume on the date of 
publication of the ITC's final determinations in the Federal Register.
