Today General Electric in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a recall including as many as 2.5 million dishwasher units.
The recall hazard involves the liquid rinse-aid dispenser which can leak into internal wiring of the dishwasher and may cause an electrical short or overheating, resulting in a possible fire hazard for consumers and homeowners.
If you are using one of the recalled dishwashers you should stop using it now and contact General Electric for free repairs, a 150 rebate for a new GE dishwasher, or a $300 rebate for a new GE Profile or GE Monogram dishwasher.
The dishwasher recall includes GE built-in dishwashers sold in the colors of almond, bisque, black, stainless steel and white with the brand names of:
- GE Profile™
- GE Monogram®
