Essentially powerless, thanks to "small government" with no staff to 
enforce their Rules, and with Rules that make it easy to sell stuff that 
violates those Rules.

But, more to the point, where are YOU?  Did you complain to Maytag about 
the problem and demand that they fix it or take it back?  As we learned 
50 years ago in the civil rights movement, "if you're not part of the 
solution, you're part of the problem."
