2016-06-28 Settlement in Front-Loader Washing Machines Mold Case to Benefit Owners

Complaints about funky, smelly mold in front-loading washers started out as online chatter years ago and wound up in the courts, with a preliminary settlement reached with Whirlpool and Sears in several class-action lawsuits involving the Whirlpool, Maytag, and Kenmore front-loaders made by Whirlpool. The parties eventually came to an agreement and now members of the class have until mid-October to collect a rebate or refund.
