Thanks to an awesome list of dishwasher serial numbers that were recalled, it’s easy to discover if yours has made the list.
It has been reported that certain models could over heat and possibly catch fire.
In order to find the serial number, you must look inside the plastic tub on the left hand side of the door. It will be on a tag located on the inner edge of your dishwasher.
The Christian Science Monitor (Alissa Figueroa) explained that the dishwashers may catch flame and urged consumers to contact Maytag either online or via telephone, if your dishwasher made this list.
