GE Recalls 2.5 Million Dishwashers

Yet another appliance recall notice *yawn*.

According to CPSC, this recall is due to a faulty liquid rinse-aid dispenser. Apparently, the dispenser can leak rinse aid onto the dishwasher’s internal wiring which can cause an electrical short and overheating, posing a fire hazard to consumers. Read the sordid details ratcheer.

I wonder how much of this is just hype. OK, how many of you have actually had your dishwasher catch fire because of this? Raise your hands. No one? Yep, sounds like yet another gubmint make-work project to me.

Something else verrry interestink about this recall is that it sounds suspiciously like the recently-announced Maytag and Jenn-Air dishwasher recall, which was for the exact same reason!

Hmmm… even though all the manufacturers are in bed with each other, seems like we’re the ones getting screwed.
