Frigidaire gallery 900 series dishwasher

caught fire this morning while we slept ! My teenage son happened to smell smoke and decided to investigate.

Lucky for us he is not a sound sleeper! This dishwasher is only 5 years old. If I had turned it on when I usually do; (after everyone goes to bed ) the outcome could have been disasterous for my husband, myself and our four young children!

Has anyone had this happen to them?
I think the company should answer to this!

I will never buy any appliance with the frigidaire name again!

Dishwasher fire
by: RJ

We just had a fire in our unit behind the vent in the top left of the door. Severe melting and smoke just happened to be while my wife was home so she could shut it off before more damage. It did not pop the breaker which is troublesome. Our Fridgidaire Gallery unit was about 8 years old. Replaced it with a Kenmore unit. Who really knows what brand to buy since many of the Maytag and Amana units have been recalled for fire hazards.

Fire in the Dishwasher
by: Anonymous

Our Frigidaire dishewasher is 11 years old, a Gallery model. After being out for the day, and had turned on the dishwasher before leaving, we returned to find the left upper corner around the vent charred and the plastic melted! It is a miracle that the kitchen did not go up in flames!
Now we are looking for a new one, but not this make!!
