SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 14, 2018, Commerce published the Preliminary Results 
\1\ and invited comments from interested parties.\2\ No interested 
party submitted comments. However, on December 21, 2018, Whirlpool 
Corporation (Whirlpool) submitted a request to rescind these changed 
circumstances reviews.\3\ No other party commented on Whirlpool's 
rescission request. We have not considered this request because 
Whirlpool not only submitted it approximately five months after the 90-
day withdrawal deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), but also 
after the publication of the Preliminary Results when Commerce had 
expended significant resources in conducting these changed 
circumstances reviews.

the Antidumping Duty Orders on Large Residential Washers from the

Countervailing Duty Order, 78 FR 11154 (February 15, 2013) (the 
Orders).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The products covered by the Orders are all large residential 
washers and certain subassemblies thereof from Korea and Mexico. The 
products are currently classifiable under subheadings 8450.20.0040 and 
8450.20.0080 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.

    \5\ For a full description of the scope of the order, see 
Preliminary Results, 83 FR at 56809-56810.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of Changed Circumstances Reviews

    Whirlpool requested that Commerce revoke the Orders, in part, with 
respect to FL CIM/Belt washers.\6\ Whirlpool proposed that Commerce 
amend the scope language as follows: ``{A{time} lso excluded from the 
scope are automatic clothes washing machines that meet all of the 
following conditions: (1) Have a horizontal rotational axis; (2) are 
front loading; and (3) have a drive train consisting, inter alia, of 
(a) a controlled induction motor and (b) a belt drive.'' \7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Whirlpool's Letter, ``Large Residential Washers from 
Korea and Mexico: Request for Changed Circumstances Review,'' dated 
March 22, 2018.
    \7\ Whirlpool proposed that the following words be defined as 
follows: (1) ``front loading'' means that ``access to the basket is 
from the front of the washer;'' and (2) a ``controlled induction 
motor'' is ``an asynchronous, alternating current, polyphase 
induction motor.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Reviews

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that Whirlpool does not 
account for at least 85 percent of the production of the domestic like 
product and, therefore, does not account for ``substantially all'' of 
the production of the domestic like product.\8\ Therefore, we 
preliminarily determined not to revoke the Orders, in part, with 
respect to FL/CIM Belt washers.\9\ As no parties commented on the 
Preliminary Results, we made no changes for the final results of these 
changed circumstances reviews. Consequently, we continue to determine 
not to revoke the Orders, in part, with respect to FL/CIM Belt washers.
