Description: Retrofit Program for Speed Queen Contempo Mate Washer/Dryer NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 9, 1989 Release # 89-035 Rent-A-Center Announces A Retrofit Program For Owners Or Users Of Speed Queen Contempo Mate Washer/Dryer Equipped With Caster -- Rollers WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Rent-A-Center, Inc. of Wichita, Kansas, is voluntarily offering a retrofit program originally offered by Speed Queen for customers who either own or rent a Speed Queen Contempo Mate Stack combination washer-dryer with caster-rollers. The program is intended to eliminate the possibility that consumers could receive a hand or foot injury from the appliance when in operation. The casters elevate the appliance high enough off the floor to allow children to contact some of the washer's moving parts. Rent-A-Center will supply all its customers with a permanent guard for the base of the Contempo Mate Washer/Dryer equipped with caster-rollers. Casters permit consumers to roll the appliance to the water and drain source for clothes washing, and then to return the unit to another area for convenient storage. For those Rent-A-Center customers needing special assistance, Rent-A-Center has the retrofit safety guards at its service centers and will provide free installation of the guard for its customers. Rent-A-Center customers owning or renting the Speed Queen Contempo Mate Stack Washer/Dryer with caster-rollers should call Rent-A-Center toll-free at 1-800-666-8186 to obtain the free guard kit, obtain help in installing the guard, or for other information about the retrofit program.
