Attorney Stuart Eppsteiner interviewed by NBC Miami’s “Team 6 Investigation” – discussing Frontload Washer Mold issues and Odors. He describes their inherent design problems, and how it affects consumers nationwide.
Many front load washing machines have a problem that causes mold to grow in the gasket that seals the washing machine door, on the underside of the gasket, in space between the bottom of the gasket and component below it, as well as in detergent and freshener drawers.
Many manufacturers have not designed or manufactured the gasket and surround parts and conditions to cause water to drain out of and away from the gasket and the adjacent components. Those defectively designed and manufactured front load washers cause water to be retained in the bottom of the door gasket, underneath the gasket and space adjacent to the gasket. The retention of the water mixed with detergents, softeners, fabric residue, etc eventually cause mold to grow in the washer.
The mold in your washing machine causes 1) awful smells, 2) your laundry to smell moldy, 3) your laundry room or area to smell moldy; and 4) in the worst cases illness related to mold or mold allergies. Below is an example of a front load washer with visible mold growth. (Please click the images for larger detail.)
Some front load washing machine manufacturers, notably, LG, Whirlpool and Sears/Kenmore have already been sued. Maytag was sued and settled a class action lawsuit regarding mold in its Neptune brand front load washers, as reported by Consumer Reports. (MSNBC recently reported that mold in front load washers is pervasive and cannot be avoided in some cases, regardless of what a homeowner does to avoid it.)
