You Spin Me Round: Whirlpool Product Recall

Only sometimes do you check the BBC News and find one of your websites being mentioned, but this is one of those days.

We were approached to build a standalone website to support the Whirlpool Dryer recall some months ago, and working to a limited but developing brief delivered the site as required.

It has since supported tends of thousands of their customers since to resolve the issue with their dryer.

Today saw another burst of media activity around that recall, seeing a large increase in the number of people visiting the site. The site responded well throughout: the dryer checker (linked from within the site and hosted by Whirlpool themselves) was slower due to the sheer number of visitors.
