General Electric Company Complaint - GE Profile Dishwasher MELTED EVERYTHING
In 2008 we bought a GE Profile dishwasher to match all of our other kitchen GE profile appliances, it is a stainless steel outside brushed finish. The model # is PDW9980N00SS. It was over $800. They don't make this model anymore and its no surprise... I had it for less than 6 months when it flooded my kitchen, the "something" had to be replaced, luckily still under warranty. Worked fine after that but could not get rid of a funny smell. It has never cleaned my dishes perfectly, I always have to pick food off and rewash glasses. I use jet dry and the best of the best dishwashing detergent tablets. Last night I unloaded the clean dishes, put in a few dirty ones, didn't snap it shut all the way and went to bed. This morning when I woke up I smelled burning plastic (I have kids so I figured somone turned on hot glue gun, but it was worse smelling than that!) I went to the kitchen and sniffed it out, when I opened the dishwasher it was extremely hot on the handle and everything on the inside was completely melted (other than the stainless steel pots and my glass blender and silverware) the silverware basket, completely melted, the cups, plates (all plastic kidware) melted, the sprayer arms (that spin underneath each rack) melted. I mean dripping melted. No longer distingishable. All the dishwasher GE parts that were plastic... melted. What a mess! Not to mention it could have burned my house down. Since it was not turned on, nor was the door shut all the way, I had to unplug it to get it to turn off! Everything was ruined, even the stuff that did not melt, because it had melted plastic all over it. The silverware (very nice silverware) ruined, the pots... ruined. The blender... ruined (all the plastic peices were melted, only the glass part exists now) I have never had it heat up like this, especially when it was not even turned on! Get rid of yours today, it might burn your house down. I can email pictures if you like. I have a lot.
