1.3M GE Dishwashers Recalled Over Fire Hazard

More than a million GE dishwashers are being recalled due to fire hazard.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday the voluntary recall includes about 1.3 million GE, GE Adora, GE Eterna, GE Profile and Hotpoint dishwashers. The machines' heating elements can fail and cause fires. GE has received seven reports of fires, three of which caused extensive property damage, according to the CPSC. No injuries have been reported.

The dishwashers were sold nationwide from March 2006 through August 2009 for $350 to $850. They came in black, white, bisque, stainless steel and CleanSteel colors and finishes.

GE is the very worst of the worst. Had about $15,000 in water damage from their lovely GE Profile refrigerator and understand I am one of many who have had that happen to. GE said they cannot do anything about it - sorry about your luck! Wish I could get rid of every GE product in my house but cannot afford right now to replace each piece.
