Maytag Recalls 2.3 Million Dishwashers Due To Fire Hazard

Do you have a Maytag or Jenn-air dishwasher? Did you buy it from July 1997 through June 2001? If so, you need to check the model number against the CPSC’s website and if it matches… stop using the dishwasher immediately, as “liquid rinse-aid can leak from its dispenser and come into contact with the dishwasher’s internal wiring which can short-circuit and ignite, posing a fire hazard.” It’s supposed to be jet dry, not jet burn the damn house down, so taking steps to prevent your dishwasher from igniting are, uh, strongly recommended.
