Class Eligibility: You are a class member if you purchased or currently own certain models of free-standing clothes dryers manufactured by Electrolux in the United States between 1/1/2002 to 12/31/2011 Dryers covered by this Settlement have serial numbers that begin with the
letters “XD” followed by the number 0,1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. The number located in the third character position stands for the year. For example, a dryer with a serial number beginning with XD6, indicates that it is a free-standing dryer that was manufactured in 2006. This dryer would be included in the Settlement, making you a Class Member.  Specific brands include:

  • Frigidaire
  • White Westinghouse
  • Kelvinator
  • Gibson
  • Tappan
  • Crosley
  • Kenmore
Estimated Amount: Subclass 1: Electrolux will provide a maximum of $350 off the purchase of a new Frigidaire or Electrolux brand clothes dryer or select Frigidaire or Electrolux home appliance. Class Members may receive one rebate for each Dryer owned. A 10% cash rebate will be provided for a new Frigidaire brand appliance and a 20% cash rebate will be provided for a new Electrolux brand appliance. Rebates may be used in addition to any other promotional offer or discount.
For example, if a retailer is offering an eligible Frigidaire or Electrolux model at a discounted sale price, you can get the discounted sales price and the cash rebate from Electrolux.

Subclass II:Electrolux will reimburse Past Dryer Fire Subclass Members and Future Dryer Fire Subclass Members (up to$1,300) for a Dryer fire that they experienced or may experience in the future. Reimbursements will be made for certain expenses if: (1) the fire occurred within the first 10 years of purchase; (2) you paid to repair or replace your Dryer or other property damaged by the fire or you paid an insurance deductible to cover the losses; and (3) you have not been fully reimbursed by Electrolux, your insurance carrier, or a third party. Reimbursements for documented, unreimbursed expenses will equal the amount you paid for your Dryer or $1,300, whichever is less. If you cannot provide any documentation showing your out-
of-pocket expenses, but are able to show that you purchased a Dryer and that Dryer had a fire, Electrolux will reimburse you for the amount of unreimbursed expenses claimed or up to $300, whichever is less.

Proof of Purchase: Serial number of device (or other identifying information).
