Supreme Court Sends Smelly Washer Case Back For Another Look

We're sending this one back for another wash cycle.
The U.S. Supreme Court kicked a lawsuit over smelly front-loading washing machines back to an appeals court in Chicago,
setting up a potential clash between the nation’s highest court and a judge who is normally considered a friend of business.
Not this time.
In Sears vs. Butler, Judge Richard Posner on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a lower court
to reconsider its ruling refusing a class action on behalf of millions of consumers
who bought front-loading washers manufactured by Whirlpool.
Plaintiff lawyers argue the washers are defective because they collect mold and foul smells in normal use,
while the defense says a class action is unfeasible because only a small percentage of owners complained of the smell
and there are large individual differences in how the smell might arise,
such as whether a washer is placed in a dank basement room.

How did white-westinghouse make front loaders for 50 years without them smelling? Yep, correct they used WATER to clean themselves out. You know there is a problem when after making washing machines  since the mid-fifties they now need "washing machine cleaner."

Like i tell my customers "do not confuse saving water and energy with saving money." You pay up to do it and keep paying. What is the "echo footprint" of your refrigeration needs over twenty years when you are consuming three refrigerators in that period of time instead of one refrigerator?
