GE Recalls 74,000 Dishwashers

General Electric has recalled more than 74,000 built-in dishwashers.

The appliances have an electrical connection that can overheat during normal usage and cause a fire.

The recall includes the following models sold after January 20, 2004: GSD5500G, GSD5560G, GSD5800G, GSD5900G, GSD5960G, EDW3000G, and EDW3060G.

Affected appliances will have serial numbers that start with the letters "A"-through-"T" and the second letter "G", or the serial letters "VF".

The model number is important because not all dishwashers in the model lines are recalled.

To conctact General Electric: Call 1-800-804-9802 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET Monday through Saturday.
