GE Appliances and the U.S. CPSC are recalling about 181,00 front-load washing machines that could pose fire and shock hazards to users. A wire can break in the washer and make contact with a metal part on the washtub while the machine is operating, posing fire and shock hazards to consumers.

The washers, were manufactured at GE's Wuxi, China partner plant, Wuxi Little Swan, between December 2006 and February 2010. GE is aware of seven incidents in which flames escaped the units and caused minor smoke damage. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves GE front-load washing machines without auxiliary water heating. Model and serial numbers are listed in the chart below. Recalled washing machines were manufactured between December 2006 and February 2010.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled washers, unplug it from the electrical outlet, and contact GE for a free repair. Consumers should not operate the washer until it has been repaired. Full details are at:
