Class Action: Whirlpool Lawsuit Alleges Major Dryer Defect

Recently, a warranty class action lawsuit was brought against Whirlpool when the company sold a consumer a new dryer with a major defect. The dryer’s internal control panel burned out after only one use, displayed an error message and then stopped working properly altogether. After doing research, the consumer who brought the case discovered thousands of similar complaints lodged against Whirlpool over the internet. This Whirlpool lawsuit is not the first of its kind, as the company has been sued on numerous occasions for defective products.

To note, the Whirlpool Corporation is an American multinational manufacturer and marketer of home appliances, headquartered in Benton Charter Township, Michigan, United States, near Benton Harbor, Michigan. The Fortune 500 company has annual revenue of approximately $21 billion, 100,000 employees, and more than 70 manufacturing and technology research centers around the world. The company markets Whirlpool, Maytag, KitchenAid, Jenn-Air, Amana, Gladiator GarageWorks, Inglis, Estate, Brastemp, Bauknecht, Indesit, Hotpoint and Consul. Whirlpool Corporation is the world’s largest home appliance maker. In the U.S., Whirlpool has eight manufacturing facilities: Amana, Iowa; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Cleveland, Tennessee; Clyde, Ohio; Findlay, Ohio; Greenville, Ohio; Marion, Ohio; and Ottawa, Ohio.

    My whrilpool dryer burnt holes in a load of clothes and they were Smoky smelling. I complained to whrilpool and they didn’t do anything. All my clothes were ruined. I was lucky I was home and smelt the smoke cause it would have burnt my place down. They need to pay for it . They should have a class action law suit.

    My Maytag which is division of Whirlpool I think won’t stop drying. This happened a couple years ago and was repaired. Now it’s happening again. I was home also and realized the dryer was still going after hours. Clothes were so hot I couldn’t touch them. I think a Class Action Suit should be opened also
