Whirlpool Washing Machine Mould Class Action

Documents

CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a national Canadian class action lawsuit against Whirlpool and Sears on behalf of individuals who own certain Whirlpool, Kenmore or Maytag Front-Loading Washing Machines (all were manufactured by Whirlpool, even if they were sold under a different brand name) and who have experienced a moldy or mildew odour from their washing machines or have had to purchase Affresh tablets to avoid such a smell.

Whirlpool and Sears settled a similar class action lawsuit in the United States for U.S. residents only, but have refused to compensate their customers in Canada, whose washing machines suffer from the same exact problems. To see a copy of the U.S. settlement website, click here.

The Front-Loading Washing Machines involved include in the lawsuit are:

The class action alleges that Whirlpool and Sears designed, manufactured, marketed, distributed, imported, advertised, warranted, sold, and/or serviced the Washing Machines which suffer from serious design flaws (the “Design Defect”) which cause, inter alia, the following issues:

• The failure of the Washing Machines to properly clean themselves and to remove moisture, residue, growth and/or bacteria that leads to the formation of mould, mildew, and associated foul odours in consumers’ homes and onto their clothing;
• The accumulation of residues that contribute to the formation of mould, mildew, and associated foul odours in consumers’ homes and onto their clothing;
• The failure of the stainless steel drums to fully and properly drain in connection with each and every wash cycle and/or to not sufficiently permit the rinsing away and/or prevent the accumulation of residues and growths; and
• The failure of the door seal (the “boot”) to fully or properly drain and/or remove residues and growths after each wash.
