GE Front Loading washers are being recalled for catching fire.
Here is a link that might be useful: Check your GE model number for recall
Old news, time to move on!
Thanks for posting this. We are renting a house that has GE front loaders. I do not know the model # because it has worn away off the inside of the door. I forwarded this link to the property manager. All he said was he would let the owner know. I will be so happy to be leaving this crappy machines behind when we move out in 2 weeks.
