Thousands of every day products in our homes have been recalled because of fire related problems. Several million dishwashers have been recalled in the last 10 years and over a million are still installed in homes across the U.S. and could start fires at any time. Follow this link to the Consumer Product Safety Comission and type in the term “dishwasher” and your model number into the search field to find out if yours is affected.
You can do this with any appliance in your home to find out if it has been recalled. If so, most manufacturers will fix or replace it for free.
