Electrolux Front Loading Washer Settlement Notes

  • Grasso, et al. v. Electrolux Home Products, Inc.
  • Case No. 8:16-cv-00911
  • Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida

In October 2017, plaintiffs Wendy and Nicholas Grasso initiated this class action lawsuit against Electrolux Home Products claiming certain high efficiency front loading washers are defective because they have a propensity to develop mold, mildew, and odor issues in the course of ordinary use.

The Grassos, who purchased an Electrolux-manufactured Frigidaire front loading washing machine in 2010, say they had to deal with noxious odors in their clothes along with black streaks as a result of the mold, mildew, and bacteria build up that could not be removed.

Electrolux denies any wrongdoing, any defect in its front loading washers, and any liability but has agreed to settle these claims to avoid further litigation.

The proposed settlement agreement includes and resolves another similar class action lawsuit in Georgia that has been hotly contested for over nine years. Under the terms of the  Electrolux front loading washer settlement, Class members in both the Florida case and the Georgia case who experienced a mold, mildew, or odor issue within five years of purchasing certain washers have the option to a cash payment of $50, a 20% cash rebate off the retail purchase price of any Electrolux-manufactured appliance contained on the Appliance Options Listor reimbursement of up to $500 for out-of-pocket expenses for washer repairs or replacement due to persistent mold or mildew.

The FAQs section on the settlement website further summarizes the terms of the settlement and how Class Members can file a claim. Complete details are provided in the Settlement Agreement. The Settlement Agreement and other related documents are available on the Electrolux Front Loading Washer Settlement website.

Class members who wish to exclude themselves or object to the terms of the Front Loading Washer Class Action Settlement must do so by February 20, 2018. Class members who wish to submit a claim for payment must do so by April 19, 2018.

  1. I had purchased a fridgadaire front loader and I’ve been trying to make a claim before the due date of April 19,2018. But your website would let me. I had even tried calling the 800 number which I have as listed on my postcard as 855-247-3819 the same number listed on your website that does not work. It’s only a recording of saying the numbers 855 and then it disconnects the call. The front loader that I have has mold and mildew, it tears up all my clothes ,comforters ,towels, socks,undergarments etc.and my laundry doesn’t smell fresh anymore no matter what I would use. I paid a couple of times to try to repair . But it’s still smell very bad. If I can’t reach no one on the phone nor am I not able to fill the form out online. Which should I because I don’t have much time. Please, please, please help me and tell me what can I do to where I can still make the deadline?

    I have already summited a claim along with pictures. I have used every under the sun to bc ge the smell from my clothes. I have used tide washer cleaner,. borax, vinager and water, Lysol laundry sanitizer, and even scrubbed the inside with Lysol scrubbing wipes. I have to get a new washing machine. My clothes are not fresh after I wash them. Especially my towels. Putting dryer sheets in the dryer doesn’t help at all. To say the least I as m very frustrated.. I like the front loader because I’m 4ft 9″ and it is hard for me to reach the bottom of a top loader. I need to know if this problem has been taken care of by before I get a new washer. If this settlement is going to help pay for it also really wanted to know the status of my claim.
