Shub Law Firm is investigating claims against the Whirlpool Corporation for allegedly selling defective, leak-prone dishwashers to its customers.
Whirlpool owns multiple dishwasher brands, including Whirlpool, Whirlpool Gold, KitchenAid, JennAir, Maytag, and Kenmore. Over the last eight years, Whirlpool has received a significant amount of customer complaints regarding its dishwashers’ diverter shaft seal. Several of Whirlpool’s brands and models have this defective diverter shaft seal. Your dishwasher may be prone to leakage too.
WHIRLPOOL’S UNFAIR BUSINESS PRACTICES
Pump motors diverter shaft seals are small rings located at the bottom of dishwashers. They work to collect and disperse water during a wash cycle. Whirlpool’s dishwashers are defective because its pump motor diverter shaft seal is oriented incorrectly. Due to Whirlpool’s faulty manufacturing process, the dishwasher’s seal degrades at an accelerated rate as it is unintentionally exposed to hot, soapy water. As a dishwasher’s seal begins to degrade, it starts to leak water, which can cause serious damage to consumers’ cabinetry, flooring, and other property.
Despite how long this defect has persisted and how many customers have complained, the company has done nothing to compensate its customers, issue a recall, extend the warranty, or change this major flaw in their dishwashers’ design. Instead, Whirlpool sells replacement kits for owners to repair their dishwashers themselves. Replacement kits cost around $75, and the cost to have the diverter shaft seal correctly installed by a professional is about $200. Consumers not only have to pay for the water damage caused by Whirlpool’s dishwasher, but they also have to pay to fix a defective dishwasher that never should have been sold to them in the first place.
