Dishwasher Fire Hazard

More than a million GE Dishwashers have been recalled due to defect causing the heating elements to fail and cause fires.  There have been seven reports of accidents, three of which caused extensive property damage, but so far there have been no injuries or deaths.  GE has offered free repairs or rebates for the damaged products and urges those with affected machines to stop using them immediately and to disconnect them from any power source.
