Attorneys are investigating potential class action lawsuits on behalf of individuals whose washing machine hoses leaked and caused water damage to their properties.
It is believed that certain brands of these hoses may be defective and can suddenly burst or leak, even when installed properly. Attorneys have reason to believe that these problems stem from the manufacturers’ alleged use of substandard materials in these hoses’ tubing and coupling fixtures (the parts that connect the hoses to the appliance and property’s water line).
What You Can Do
Attorneys believe that companies that sold defective washing machine hoses could be sued. Before lawsuits can be filed, however, they need to hear from anyone whose washing machine hose leaked so that they can learn more about this possible defect and the specific brands prone to these problems.
