You may be able to cash in on front-loading washing machine settlement

MIAMI (WSVN) - (WSVN) — If you have ever purchased or have owned a front-loading Maytag, Whirpool, or Kenmore washing machine, then you may be entitled to some money.

According to the agreement, a settlement was reached in several class-action lawsuits against Whirlpool and Sears over front-loading washing machines made between 2001 and 2010.

The settlement states that customers claimed the front-loading washing machines failed to work properly, resulting in mildew and even mold.

According to the settlement site, class members may be eligible to choose from a $50 cash payment, a cash rebate of either 20% or 5% off the retail purchase price of a new washing machine or dryer, or reimbursement of up to $500 for out-of-pocket expenses for Class Washer repairs or replacements due to a mold or odor problem. Qualified class members may receive one benefit for each Class Washer they purchased or acquired.
