Maytag Announces Massive Dishwasher Recall

2.3 million Maytag and Jenn Air dishwashers are being recalled for a very real fire risk. Apparently, the rinse aid dispenser can leak onto internal wiring causing an electrical short circuit and, in some cases, fire. It’s already happened to 135 unhappy Maytag owners. You could be next! More info here.

This recall comes right on the heels of Whirlpool’s recent purchase of Maytag. Interestingly, Whirlpool investors don’t seem too concerned– Whirlpool stock just keeps going up. I wouldn’t buy any just yet, though.
