Maytag Dishwashers Recalled – Fire Danger

Along with Maytag, The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is announcing a voluntary recall for approximately 1.7 million Maytag dishwashers. There has been found to be a danger of electrical problems in the unit’s heating element, which if left unchecked has been found to cause a possibility of fire. So far Maytag has been apprised of twelve incidents of fires resulting from the faulty heating elements, causing damage to the appliances, and one case involving significant fire damage to the kitchen, fortunately there are no reports of injury.

The recall involves the following models, the model and serial numbers can be found on a tag on the plastic tub by the left side of the door opening:

  3. Do not go into a kitchen remodeling project without some planning. In face lots of planning, it will save you a lot of headaches when you start. Figure out what you want first, and how much you want o pay. Then and only then should you go out and find a kitchen contractors. Look online or do it the old fashion way, ask your friends and neighbors.
