On June 27, 2016, after several months of investigation, Robbins Geller filed a class action lawsuit against Whirlpool Corporation (“Whirlpool”) on behalf of consumers who purchased a Whirlpool oven containing Whirlpool’s “AquaLift® Self-Cleaning Technology,” a system that purportedly “self-cleans” the interior of a dirty oven in less than one hour using only water and low heat (“AquaLift”).

The lawsuit alleges that the AquaLift technology does not work as marketed and advertised by Whirlpool. Indeed, Whirlpool markets and advertises its stoves, ranges, and ovens with the AquaLift technology based on AquaLift being a “first-of-its kind cleaning solution that is activated with heat and water to release tough baked-on soils from the oven interior in less than 1 hour” and tells consumers that the AquaLift appliances contain an “exclusive coating on the interior [that] activates with water and heat, allowing moisture to detach soils from underneath so food and debris easily wipe away.”  These statements personify the sort of claims that are false and misleading, according to the complaint, as consumers who purchased these stoves, ranges, and ovens are forced to manually clean the interior of their appliances after using the AquaLift self-cleaning technology.

Below is a list of known appliances that are equipped with the AquaLift® Technology. If your appliance is not listed and you know your appliance is also equipped with the AquaLift® Technology, please let us know.
