Welcome to the Chambers v. Whirlpool Settlement website
If you purchased or owned a dishwasher manufactured by Whirlpool, you may qualify for benefits and compensation from a class action settlement.
Includes the following brands: KitchenAid, Kenmore, and Whirlpool
UPDATE: The parties have updated the lists of Kenmore-brand dishwasher models that are eligible for Class and non-Class benefits. If you previously checked the Kenmore Dishwasher model lists and could not find your model number on the list, please check the updated Class Dishwasher Model List here and the updated Non-Class Dishwasher Model List here to see if your Kenmore model is included. The Court has ordered that the claims period for Kenmore-brand Dishwasher owners shall be re-opened from July 20 through August 17, 2016. If you bought a Kenmore-brand Dishwasher and wish to make a claim for benefits in this Settlement, please be sure to file your claim by August 17, 2016. The claims deadline for KitchenAid and Whirlpool-brand Dishwashers is now closed.
January 5, 2017 Update: The Court granted Final Approval to the Settlement on October 11, 2016. Several appeals have been filed, however, meaning the Settlement is not yet final. Please be patient.
Rebate Claims: If you filed a timely claim seeking a rebate, a notice was sent to you in July 2016, stating that you do not need to wait for final approval or until the rebate form arrives in order to make a purchase of a Whirlpool, Kitchenaid, or Kenmore dishwasher to qualify for the rebate. If and when the rebate program becomes final, the Claims Administrator will send you additional information. If you have already made an eligible purchase, or if you make an eligible purchase before the rebate program becomes final, please be sure to keep your receipt in a safe place because you will be required to submit it. Please note that the parties cannot guarantee that the rebate program will become final, although we anticipate that it will.
A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Whirlpool Corporation ("Whirlpool"), Sears Holdings Corporation ("Sears Holdings"), and Sears, Roebuck and Company ("Sears") (together, the "Defendants") regarding certain dishwashers manufactured between October 2000 and January 2006. Whirlpool has also agreed to provide additional benefits to owners of certain dishwashers— manufactured between 1995 and 2010—that observed or experienced smoke, flames, fumes, sparks, or electrical arcing from the control console area/electronic control board of their dishwasher (an "Overheating Event").
If you are included in the Settlement, you may qualify for a variety of benefits including a rebate on the purchase of a new dishwasher, and reimbursement for expenses incurred due to past or future dishwasher overheating events.
Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don't act. Read the Class Notice carefully.
