We have an important consumer alert about something you may have in your home.
If you bought a GE or a Hotpoint dishwasher between March 2006 and August 2009, stop using it immediately. It could catch fire.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall for 1.3 million dishwashers after a series of fires caused by faulty heating elements.
GE has received seven reports of fires. Three caused extensive damage. No injuries were reported.
