In the News: Quantum Legal LLC partner Rich Burke talks about moldy front load washers.
Quantum Legal LLC is currently prosecuting class action lawsuits against Sears/Kenmore, Whirlpool, LG, GE, Bosch, Frigidaire, Electrolux, Samsung and other manufacturers of front load or front-loading washing machines due to mold and odor problems. These washing machines are the ideal environment for the buildup of biofilm. These washing machines fail to properly self-clean causing mold and odors thereby ruining clothes and necessitating costly repairs. The moldy front load washers may look like this:
The federal judge in the Whirlpool Multi-District Litigation (MDL) certified a statewide (Ohio) class of persons who own Whirlpool front-loading washing machines. We intend to ask the Court to expand the class to include persons from other states. If you would like to read a copy of the Court's Order in Whirlpool, please click here: certification order.
The Federal Appeals Court in Chicago recently granted class certification for a 6-state class of persons who own Sears Kenmore-branded front-load washing machines. We intend to ask the District Court to expand the class to include persons from other states.
