samantha severyn

Certain front-loading Electrolux-made washers under the Electrolux, Frigidaire, Kenmore, Crosley, or White-Westinghouse brands have a design flaw that allows water to collect in the gasket, leading to the development of mold and mildew.

Owners of these front-loading washers made between January 1, 2004, and December 31, 2011 may qualify for up to 500-dollars.

Class Members include persons in the U.S. and its territories who, between Jan. 1, 2004 and Dec. 31, 2011 purchased a new Class Washer, acquired one with the purchase or remodel of a home, or received one as a gift.

According to the settlement agreement, Class Washers include “any new and previously unused high-efficiency front-load washing machine manufactured by Electrolux (including 3.1, 3.5, and 4+ platforms) and sold under the Electrolux, Frigidaire, Crosley, White-Westinghouse, or Kenmore brand names.”

A full list of brands/model numbers included in the settlement are listed below:

  • A $50 cash payment;
  • A cash rebate worth either 20 percent or five percent of the purchase price of a new Electrolux-manufactured appliance. A full list of the qualifying appliances is available here; or
  • Reimbursement for up to $500 to cover out-of-pocket expenses incurred in addressing mold and mildew issues that were “persistent” – i.e., occurred more than once.
