Bosch Front-Loading Washer Mold

Result: $55 cash payment
Year: 2015

Lieff Cabraser represented consumers nationwide in a class action lawsuit against BSH Home Appliances Corporation. The complaint alleged that certain front-loading Bosch and Siemens washing machines were defectively designed and, as a result, accumulated biofilm, mold, mildew, and bacteria, and produced foul odors. The specific washers subject to the class action were the Bosch Nexxt (sold from 2004 to 2009), Bosch Vision (sold from 2009 to 2011), and the Siemens UltraSense (sold from 2004 to 2008).

On July 27, 2015, the Court approved a settlement of the class action lawsuit that provided a $55 cash payment to all class members who submitted a timely, valid claim. The deadline to submit claims was May 28, 2015.
