Any insiders out there with info on WP dishwasher fires?
The local news here in Portland is flooded with stories about fires in DW made by Whirlpool - including Kenmore, Maytag and others. It seems this fire issue has existed for a number of years and some have been recalled in the past. Some of the fires happened when the machine was not running. Are there any appliance insiders out there who really know what is going on? Should I turn the breaker off to my D/W when not using it? I don't usually worry about things like this but I don't want my house to burn down.
I have a 1.5 yr old WP mid-range D/W - it had 2275 in the model number.
