I turned on my dishwasher and left the room. My son (5) noticed a bad smell, so I started searching for this smell. When I went to my kitchen my dishwasher was on fire, and kitchen was full of smoke. Immediately, I removed the kids and pets from the house, cut power to the appliance and called 911. The fire company came and said that yes it was an electrical fire from the dishwasher. I replaced the entire kitchen appliances, as now I had a bad opinion of Whirlpool appliances, and honestly, afraid the others could catch fire too. I had no idea that there was a recall on these items, till now, 7 months later.
