GE top loader NEW washer 4.2 Model # GTW460ASJWW is making me and my son ill when I run it.
It is off gassing bad metallic chemical smells giving me and my family headaches, neck pain, aches and heart palpitations and asthma symptoms when we are near it for 5 minutes.(signs of chemical toxicity)
I have allergies and do not think I can return the product,without a charge.
I've heard many of the new models smell terrible and leave peoples clothes smelling like chemicals. This is horribly unacceptable.
I also received a new Sears refrigerator last year from my landlord. The plastic smell seized my lungs up and I had to go to emergency room for allergy steroid shot..and take {REDACTED] for 2 weeks.
Why and what are these toxic materials allowed in our appliances and homes?
