NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Asko has recalled 30,000 dishwashers in the U.S. and Canada due to a fire hazard from the power cords overheating.
The company has received 53 reports of power cords overheating, although there were no reported injuries or property damage.
According to Asko, the hazard is related to a possible fault in the power cable and can occur when the dishwasher is in operation but not when it’s sitting idle.
The recall involves 15 models that were sold from October 2016 until last July for between $1,000 and $2,200.
Asko makes high-end dishwashers that typically sell for more than $1,000.
