Is there a recall? If so where can I go to get the model #s? Is it just G E's site?

Just exactly how do you report this story and give no means for people to check if they have the affected model? Typical news story, make a big splash with the head line and have no meat to the story. Fortunately Reese at B93 was RESPONSIBLE enough to provide the link

The daughter makes mention to the fact that GE should NOT have put these dishwashers out if they were dangerous, as if they purpousely did it. Any company could go through this experience and unfortunetly you are not going to know of these types of things until it happens a few times. You don't know when you build them that they will do this, think about it!!!

I have tried several times to get thru their recall hot-line and they just say they are so busy so try to call us back some othertime. I wonder how many do they have servicing this recall hotline? They tell you not to use the dishwasher. I would think they would have the dealers were you purchased the dishwasher involved but they are not.

It would have been nice to have been given the link to the GE recall site. Thank you to Jeff from GR (not WI) for including it in his comment. The recall hot-line is not accepting calls because they are too busy. Maybe they should add a few more lines to their hot-line center.

Magtag Dishwasher had a recall a couple of months ago for the same reason these others were recalled. I gave maytag my model number MDB5600AWB Serial Number 14166753AX At that time I was told my dishwasher was not being recalled. I did not save the phone number. How can I check this out further?
