Weakness in trading in Whirlpool (WHR -5.8%) is being attributed to a new report from Cleveland Research on the company's sales trends.

The boutique investment firm says Whirlpool's sales have slowed during the last 30 days amid the government shutdown and budget drama.

The company has been lumped into a broader category of stocks which could suffer as consumers hold off on buying household goods.
