Maytag Corporation, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a voluntary recall of approximately 1.7 million Maytag®, Amana®, Jenn-Air®, Admiral®, Magic Chef®, Performa by Maytag® and Crosley® brand dishwashers with plastic tubs and certain serial numbers. The units were sold at department and appliance stores and by homebuilders nationwide from February 2006 through April 2010 for between $250 and $900.
An electrical failure in the dishwasher’s heating element can pose a serious fire hazard. Maytag has received 12 reports of dishwasher heating element failures that resulted in fires and dishwasher damage, including one report of extensive kitchen damage from a fire. No injuries have been reported. Consumers have been asked to immediately stop using their recalled dishwasher, disconnect the electric supply by shutting off the fuse or circuit breaker controlling it, and inform all users of the dishwasher about the risk of fire. Consumers are being offered two resolution options: they can either schedule a free in-home repair or receive a rebate following the purchase of certain new Maytag dishwasher models.
