Charlene Dzielack has filed a class action lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey against Whirlpool Corporation on behalf of all U.S. consumers who purchased Maytag Centennial washing machines with model numbers MVWC6ESWW0, MVWC6ESWW1, and MVWC7ESWW0.

According to the lawsuit, the washing machines have an ENERGY STAR logo, but do not meet the standards set by the U.S. Department of Energy to be ENERGY STAR qualified. ENERGY STAR qualified washing machines must use 37 percent less energy and 50 percent less water than standard models. Testing performed by the Department of Energy found the washing machines did not meet ENERGY STAR guidelines.

The lawsuit names Whirlpool Corporation, Lowe’s Companies, Inc., and Sears Holdings Corporation as defendants. The suit alleges the washing machines were mislabeled, and that the companies violated the Magnuson-Moss Warranty act. The complaint also alleges breach of express warranty, breach of implied warranty of merchantability, unjust enrichment, and violation of the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act, violation of the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act Unfair Competition Law, false advertising, and violation of the consumer fraud laws of various states.

The lawsuit seeks compensatory and punitive damages in amounts as deemed fit by judge or jury, prejudgment interest on awarded amounts, restitution, and injunctive relief.
