Whirlpool and Kitchenaid dishwashers are spontaneously catching fire across the country. There have been dozens of reports in the state of Connecticut alone. Despite numerous reports of flames and smoke, Whirlpool has refused to issue a recall. The company had also refused to replace any of these dishwashers. Hundreds of “victims” have taken to the internet to report their problems on A class action lawsuit is also underway against the dishwasher maker. The problem appears to stem from the electronic keypad overheating and shorting out. A few months after our story aired, our 3 “victims” were contacted by Whirlpool and offered compensation to buy a new dishwasher. The class action lawsuit however is still pending and the consumer product safety commission is also investigating.
