Whirlpool has been placed in the media spotlight in the USA due to Kitchen Aid dishwasher models have been seen to go on fire with owners launching a class action.
Whirlpool is the latest appliance manufacturer to find it'self a victim of a fire hazard due to it's appliances with Samsung, Bosch, Beko and others recewntly having had applainces which posed a potential risk of fire. The dishwasher models, which have not yet been subject to a recall and we are unaware of any UK or EU models that may be affected, seem to be the latest in a long line of poor design choices putting people at risk. All appear to have one thing in common however, they tend to be lower end products.
One quote on this particular case has been that, :The devestating defect in the control board creates a substantial and unreasonable risk of propert, injury and death".
