Frigidaire Front Load Washer Class Action Lawsuit

Gibson Dunn Faces Front Load Washer Class Action Lawsuit

Plaintiff Robert Brown and his partner, Michael Vogler, brought a complaint against the company in August 2020. They claim they bought faulty Frigidaire front-load washers from the manufacturer, which collected water inside a metallic gasket during the wash cycle and caused mildew, mold and mildew growth on the appliance after the clean cycle was completed. In September of the same year, a federal judge ordered the company to repair or replace the appliance, but the company continued to sell the appliances despite the order.

The plaintiffs, who are represented by the St. Louis-based law firm of Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, claim the company did not follow the order, which was issued by U.S. District Court Judge David Doty. They also claim that the company failed to fix or replace the faulty washers, despite a cease-and-desist letter from Judge Doty.

In addition, plaintiffs claim they only learned about the potential problem with the Frigidaires’ washers after they had used the product for several months, but the manufacturer did not disclose the potential issues until the company was forced to recall its products. Gibson Dunn also claims that the company was aware that it was not in compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, but did not inform the company’s customers. In order to bring this case, plaintiffs need to show that the company either knew of the potential problem or failed to report it to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

A hearing will take place on October 10th in a U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Missouri, in Springfield, Mo., to determine whether or not the Frigidaires will have to pay the damages. Gibson Dunn claims that it will be able to recoup the cost of its attorneys’ fees, but that it is still in a difficult financial position because of the cost of purchasing new Frigidaires for their clients. In addition, the company is facing a lawsuit from the company that manufactured the washers and washer parts, so the costs of manufacturing new parts are not included in its court fees. According to the law firm, that company has not yet taken any action.

In addition to the damages sought by the plaintiffs, Gibson Dunn is asking the court to force the manufacturer to post a “corrective ad” stating that lists a variety of problems with the Frigidaires and that the washers were not the cause of any of those problems. If the jury finds for the plaintiff, it may compel the company to issue such a product statement.

The Frigidaires will go on trial on November 7th. There is no set date yet, but it is expected to take place in Springfield. If found liable, Gibson Dunn will be required to pay out a large sum of money to the plaintiffs.

The Frigidaires have previously claimed that it does not believe it is responsible for any problems that the appliance may have caused its customers, but the fact is that it is a widely-known fact that the washers can cause problems. As the name suggests, the washers collect water inside a metal tube that is connected to a filter.

The case is similar to a class-action lawsuit filed in 2020 by Kimberly-Clark Corporation and other major corporations for the same product line, including the front-load washers. The plaintiffs in that case won a large settlement, but the case has been on the shelf since then.

As with the Kimberly-Clark lawsuit, the Frigidaire washes, which use front-load washers, have been implicated in numerous cases that involved people who bought them and found themselves having a hard time using them. The problem was that the front-load washers often would not spin at the right speed, causing the wash to run in a choppy, slanted manner. This was a huge inconvenience for many users.

Gibson Dunn says that a new front-load washer model will come out shortly after the Frigidaires go on sale. This new model will work much like the old one, but it will be able to spin at a faster speed that can make washing more efficient. and less time consuming.

In the meantime, if you own a Frigidaire, you can expect a hefty price hike when the Frigidaire front load washer class action lawsuit finally reaches court. However, the cost should not be a deterrent for you from buying one of these appliances.
