In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Whirlpool Corp. is recalling 162,000 dishwashers due to a wiring defect that poses risks of overheating and fire.

The appliance maker has received three reports of overheating in its Whirlpool and Kenmore brand under-the-counter plastic tall tub dishwashers.

The electrical defect is in the wash motor wiring of the dishwashers, which were sold throughout the U.S. by department and appliance stores and homebuilders from June 2004 to January 2005 for U.S. $350 to $600. The dishwashers were made in Findlay, OH, U.S., and the motors in China.

The recalled Whirlpool dishwashers have model numbers beginning with DU1, DUL, GU1, GU2, and GU6 and serial numbers ranging from FR2200000 to FR2499999. Recalled Kenmore dishwashers have model numbers 665.143, 665.160, 665.163, 665.170 and 665.173 and serial numbers ranging from FR2200000 to FR4599999.
