General Electric Washers Recalled Warning of Injury Hazard
On October 3, 2012, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of GE Profile™ Front Load Washers because of reports of washer baskets separating, including 10 reports of top panel breakage. The washing machines were made in China and imported by GE Appliances of Louisville, Kentucky, and were sold at such retailers as Best Buy, Lowe’s, Sears, The Home Depot and other department and retail stores nationwide, from July 2008 to August 2011.
Consumers owning these machines were advised to stop using the recalled washers immediately and contact GE for a free repair. The recall involved GE Profile™ frontload washing machines with model numbers beginning with WPDH8800, WPDH8900, and WPDH8910. All serial numbers with these models are included in the recall.
We advise all consumers who have recalled products to immediately stop using them. If you have been injured by one of these GE Profile washers it is important that you seek the proper legal advice regarding any potential claim for your injuries. Defective products and dangerous products that are produced and sold to the consumers have cause serious injuries and even death throughout the years. It is our hope that by holding companies responsible and accountable for products that could have been made safer but chose a profit over the safety of their customers.
