GE Profile Washing Machine Recall announced - CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced that GE is issuing a voluntary recall for 62,000 Profile Front Load Washing Machines because the basket could separate and cause the top panel to come off the unit. The washing machine will need a free repair to prevent potential injuries that may occur if the panel comes loose.

GE announced the recall after they received 19 reports of the washer baskets separating. In 10 of these reports, the top panel of the machine was broken. GE has not received any injury reports.

The washing machines were sold at Best Buy, Lowe’s, Sears, The Home Depot, and other retail locations nationwide between July 2008 and August 2011. They sold for around $1,199 and $1,599.

The GE Profile frontloading washing machines that have the model numbers starting with WPDH8800, WPDH8900, and WPDH8910 are involved in the recall. The model number can be seen when the door is opened. Open the door and look at the washing machine’s right side by the bottom and behind the door next to the doorframe. All of the units with the above model numbers have been recalled.

Consumers who have the recalled washing machine should not use it until they can have the unit repaired at no cost to them. They can contact GE Appliances toll free at (888) 641-9739 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday. More information about the recall has also been posted at the company’s website at www.geappliances.com/products/recall.
