Welcome to the Essa v. Whirlpool Settlement website

 If you purchased or owned a dishwasher manufactured by Whirlpool, your rights may be affected and you may qualify for benefits and compensation from a proposed class action settlement.

If you live in Canada and own or owned a Whirlpool®, Kenmore®, or KitchenAid® brand dishwasher manufactured by Whirlpool between October 2000 and January 2006 and containing either a “Rushmore” or “Rush” electronic control board (the “Dishwashers”), then you may be affected by a national settlement that has been reached in a Class Action with respect to past or future overheating events in the Dishwashers. The Defendants maintain that the Dishwashers are safe and reliable and that they were designed with built-in safety features to contain rare overheating events inside the dishwasher. The Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench has not decided who is right. Instead, the parties have agreed to settle the Class Action. The settlement has received preliminary approval from the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench. Subject to final approval, the following benefits may be available as a result of the settlement:

(a) Certain past expenses related to repairing a Dishwasher; or

(b) Partial reimbursement for purchasing a replacement dishwasher; and

(c) A cash rebate on the purchase of a new Whirlpool®, Kenmore®, or KitchenAid® brand dishwasher.


Certain benefits may also be available to Canadian residents who own or owned a non-class dishwasher containing either a “New Gen” or “Raptor” electronic control board if an overheating event was or is experienced.

 Refer to the model and serial number lists on this site to identify the electronic control board in your dishwasher.
