Class Certification Granted in Fridgidaire Washing Machine Lawsuit

A Georgia federal judge has granted class certification in a consumer lawsuit alleging defects in Frigidaire front-loading washing machines. In their Complaint, the plaintiffs alleged that these washing machines collected water in the convoluted bellows after the wash cycle, causing mildew or mold to grow. They alleged that Frigidaire deceived customers, advertising that the machine would make clothes "feel fresher and last longer." According to the Complaint, Frigidaire sold 1.3 million of these machines. The suit was initially filed in 2008.

The Court found that the class members shared common issues, including whether there was a common design defect in the machine, whether the defect caused mold or mildew to grow, and whether Frigidaire failed to warn consumers of the defect. The Court found that these issues were central to the case and that certification would "advance the litigation and drive the resolution of the lawsuit." The certified class includes consumers in California and Texas who purchase a Frigidaire front-loading washing machine with convoluted bellows for the last four years.

The case is styled Terrill, et al v. Electrolux Home Products Inc., d/b/a Frigidaire, Case No. 1:08-cv-00030 (S.D. Ga.).
