The U.S. District Court announced in September 2015 that the Whirlpool Dishwasher Lawsuit has agreed upon a settlement. Owners of Whirlpool, KitchenAid, or Kenmore brand dishwashers manufactured between October 2000 and January 2008 (equipped with an electronic control board or “ECB”) may be subject to a variety of benefits including a rebate for the purchase of a new unit and / or reimbursement of expenses incurred due to the dishwasher malfunction.
