RECALL: Front Load Washers
GE Profile front load washers are being recalled for an injury hazard.
GE is recalling about 62,000 units of their GE Profile front load washers, because of the washer basket can separate during use and break the washer's top panel, posing an injury hazard to consumers, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
There have been 19 reports of washer baskets separating, including 10 reports of top panels breaking. No injuries have been reported.
The washers were sold at Best Buy, Lowe's Sears, the Home Depot and other retail department stores nationwide from July 2008 to August 2011.
Consumers should stop using the washers and contact GE for a free repair. Consumers can also contact GE Applainces at 888-641-9739 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or online at www.geappliances.com/products/recall.
