      KitchenAid's Facebook wall blocked me several weeks ago. They removed all of my posts and I'm no longer able to post on their wall. I'd wanted to keep sharing this link on the KitchenAid Facebook wall, their wall is currently getting a lot of exposure due to the Komen news story. It's the perfect time to generate more awareness, so please feel free to post the link to this website on the KitchenAid Facebook wall (or the Whirlpool Facebook wall--I posted it there, too, but they removed my post, too!) or wherever else you'd like! Thanks for your help!

      I own one of the models that has been reported catching on fire and I am concerned for the safety of my family.

      We have spent hours in requesting for a safety recall of dishwashers from Sears Kenmore/Whirlpool after having our dishwasher panel catch on fire. These companies will take no responsibility and deny the existence of faulty components. Sears claims that there would be no problem for us if we had purchased the extended warranty. This extended warranty does NOTHING to prevent the fire hazards, it would simply cover the repair or replacement of the machine AFTER a hazardous fire. Their suggestion of what we should have done (bought $$$ more service) DOES NOT cover our concerns of the hazards that exist. Sears Kenmore says to call Whirlpool, and Whirlpool says it is not their dishwasher and you have to deal with Sears. We feel frustrated about the poor customer service (it's obviously a financial rip-off) and fear for the safety and consumer protection of others that are unaware. The consumer must spread the word since these companies are not doing a voluntary recall. Take a moment to do an online search on dishwasher fires and see if your brand is one that has had hundreds of reports of fires. Warning tip: Don't start the dishwasher and leave it unattended.

      Spread the word and do not shop for ANYTHING from a company that does not have a willingness to stand behind its products or to keep the consumer safe (SEARS)!

      This known issue needs to be fixed and the maker needs to be responsable for their mistake.

      Because my KitchenAid dishwasher started on fire. Whirlpool will only give me a replacement unit (which will likely have the same defect) or give me a pro-rated refund.
