WASHINGTON/SEOUL (Reuters) - The U.S. International Trade Commission on Tuesday recommended tariffs to keep Samsung and LG from flooding the U.S. market with inexpensive washers, a step that would protect American appliance giant Whirlpool Corp (WHR.N). U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to make a decision on the recommendation by early next year.

The world's largest maker of liquid crystal displays (LCDs) also forecast shipments of screens would increase by "a mid-single digit percent" in the current quarter.
