GE has just recalled 174,000 "Profile" and "Monogram" dishwashers!!
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), these dishwashers are a fire hazard.
The models in the US manufactured between July 2002 and December 2006, have this issue that causes water to drip onto the electronic control board. This then results in a short circuit.
The CPSC has heard of 5 reports of fires so far, but thankfully no injuries.
If you have one of these dishwashers STOP using it and contact GE!!
