Wouldn't you just know it?

Saw a story this morning on Good Morning America about the dishwasher recall by GE.

I looked around my kitchen and saw that I was surrounded by GE appliances, including a GE Profile dishwasher.

So, being the good consumer that I am, I checked the model number and serial number, and damn it all....mine is one of the 2.5 million dishwashers being recalled.

I swear, can't a woman get a break? Ever?

So, now we have several options:

1. Receive a $300 rebate after purchasing an eligible GE Monogram or GE Profile dishwasher (which sounds great til you realize the cheapest GE Profile is $800).

2. Receive a $150 rebate after purchasing an eligible GE dishwasher.

3. Call for a repair. [God knows how long that might take].

In the meantime, we are not supposed to use the dishwasher anymore, just in case it decides to catch fire. [Apparently, the little container that holds JetDry can leak onto the wires and cause a fire].

The stupid thing has been working just fine for the past 1 1/2 years that we've lived in our house....and now suddenly I'm supposed to not use it?

So, if you have a GE dishwasher that you bought between 1997 and 2001, you might want to go to the GE web site and see if it's been recalled.


  1. How absolutely annoying.

    (I like the tag you put on this post.)

  2. Yeah...very annoying. I tell you, it's always something.

    BTW: we're going the free repair route. :)
