Whirlpool Sued for Leaky Refrigerator; Settlement Reaches $21 Million
Whirlpool has agreed to settle its recent Leaky Refrigerator class action lawsuit concerning several consumers who complained that their refrigerator has a defect in their drain tube. This issue led to freezing and leakages.
Up to 1.7 million refrigerators under Whirlpool, Amana, Jenn-Air, and KitchenAid brands are subjected to investigation. According to reports, the class members included in this lawsuit are the ones who purchased the “French-door, bottom-mount” refrigerator or received one such refrigerator when remodeling a home.

The consumer attorneys will be receiving as much as $1.8 million in fees and costs. Meanwhile, the laid plaintiff will claim a $5,000 award for her role in the Whirlpool drain tube class action lawsuit.
Aside from the $21 million settlement, Whirlpool will also conduct a replacement parts program until the end of 2021. The participants of this program will have lesser benefits since they already received the replacements.
Meanwhile, Class Members are entitled to several repair scenarios. Whirlpool will shoulder up to $150 repairs and labor costs for the first three years after purchase. Then, they will cover 65% of repairs in the fourth year and only 50% of costs in the fifth year upon purchase.
