Appliance safety is very important to us and we want to ensure that our customers and readers are aware of current safety recalls. As of October 1st, a recall has been issued for a number of Bosch, Gaggenau, Thermador, and Kenmore Elite Dishwashers.
The reason for the recall is an issue with the power cord on the above mentioned models produced between January 2008 and December 2013 (sold between January 2009 and May 2014). The cord could potentially overheat and in some cases cause an electrical fire. There have been at least 10 reports of issues with this, 5 reports of fire at this time, and thankfully no injuries.
To prevent future hazard, we strongly recommend you refrain from using the appliance until the necessary repairs have been made. You can contact the manufacturer for information regarding a free inspection and repair for you dishwasher. Just have your model/serial number ready depending on the brand so they can assist you. If you’re having trouble finding the model number, head over to our model number locator for a list of likely locations and diagrams.
