Electrolux Class Action Alleges Frigidaire, Kenmore Washing Machines Prone to Mold


Wheeling, WV: A federal class action lawsuit has been field against Electrolux Home Products Inc, over allegations the company marketed and sold defective washing machines.

Filed by plaintiffs Gloria Waters and William Hall, on behalf of themselves and others similarly situated, the lawsuit claims that Electrolux sold front-loading washing machines that are prone to accumulate mold.

The lawsuit alleges Electrolux sold the defective washing machines under brand names including Frigidaire and Kenmore, and that Electrolux knowingly concealed the fact that the washing machines were prone to accumulate mold and mildew which can permeate throughout the consumer’s home and ruin clothes.

The plaintiffs are accusing Electrolux of breaching implied warranties by selling products they allegedly knew were defective, and are seeking an undisclosed amount in damages. Plaintiffs are being represented by Wexler Wallace LLP.

I bought an Electrolux French door refrigerator 2011 because of the stainless clean line look. Right away I called to have the repairman to see why you could feel cold air coming from the refrigerator and the refrigerator ran constantly making all kinds of loud noises. The repairman came out adjusted the seals on the door and said French door refrigerators was suppose to run constantly and made the loud noises I was hearing but failed to tell me the insulation was left out of the refrigerator.

To make a long story short Electrolux installed a 2' black foam on the back of the refrigerator in October or I should say they glued the foam. This took away from the clean line look and now you see the black foam glued to the back of the refrigerator. Electrolux replaced the refrigerators when they first found out the insulation was left out during manufacturing but there were so many they had to come up with a less expensive fix. They told me their engineers approved this fix. The condensations ran down the back of the refrigerator onto my floor and damaged the wood. Now it is trapped between the back of refrigerator and the black foam another concern is I think this may be a perfect place for MOLD growth. A health hazard.

Electrolux is made CHEAP and defected but they charge an enormous price when you buy their products. I paid $3299. for the refrigerator and I have had to replaced a defected ice make and a computer board for the ice maker. Another $1000 it cost me to make the repairs. This seems like an never ending expense and Electrolux doesn't want to accept responsibility.

Please let me know what can be done.
