The chairman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission stated today, “Consumers should stop using these dishwashers immediately and disconnect the power.”

According to GE, the dishwasher defect has so far resulted in seven fires, three of which were severe. They’ve received fifteen reports of problems with the heating element.
