You may have some hard cold cash coming your way if you own or have purchased certain brands of front loading washing machines between 2001 and 2010. Apparently these certain machines had a tendency to get moldy.

A settlement was reached earlier this year on class action lawsuits involving Whirlpool, Maytag and Kenmore front loader machines.  There was also a separate lawsuit and settlement involving LG washers.

If you owned or currently own a front-loading machine made between 2001 and 2010, you could be in store for a reimbursement of up to $500 for repairs or replacement of the machine due to mold or odors.

According to Consumer Reports, if your machine is on the settlement list, but didn’t have mold or odor problems with the machine, you could still qualify for cash.  Either $50 or a 20 percent rebate off the purchase of a new machine.

Don’t procrastinate, because you only have till October 11th of this year to submit a claim. It’s OK if you mail it, but it must be postmarked by the Oct. 11 deadline, or filed online.

For LG models, the deadline is Oct. 10. Click here for the LG form.
