GE Recalls Front Load Washers Due to Injury Hazard
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with GE Appliances, announced a voluntary recall of about 62,000 GE Profile™ Front Load Washers. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product. The washer’s basket can separate during use and break the washer’s top panel, posing an injury hazard to consumers. This recall involves GE Profile™ frontload washing machines with model numbers beginning with WPDH8800, WPDH8900 and WPDH8910. All serial numbers with these models are included in this recall. The washers were sold in gold, red and white colors. The model number is located on the washer’s right side near the bottom and behind the door near the door frame (visible when the door is opened).
