Default G.E. Dishwasher Recall - What to do with Old Dishwasher

Hello all,

I just finished installing my new dishwasher. The old one was subject
to the rinse agent/wire corrosion/short recall. I have the recall
paperwork filled out and anxiously await my rebate check. What is
everyone doing with their old dishwashers? There's really nothing
wrong with it (at least nothing apparent). I figured if I could get
$100 or so out of it, all the better. I suppose the worst that could
happen would be I could get sued (don't want that). My first thoughts
are to take it to the nearest appliance junk place and get rid of it.
The label has been removed (in accordance with the rebate conditions).

I hate to just trash the thing if I can get a few bucks out of it.

Just curious,

Greg Wilkerson

Can you call your local trash pick up and have them pick it up?

Why would you want to sell /give something to someone that has the potential
to burn / destroy their property?

You did get a rebate out of it. There is a reason for the recall so be
honest and uphold your part of the deal. If you sell it, your word is then
meaningless.

Also, the reason for the recall sounds like safety issue, so why would
anyone want to pass that on to another...for a few bucks.

You said it--for some (apparently including OP) a few bucks is more
important than another's safety...

Look at the old and new side by side, and see if any of the parts that
usually get broken are the same. Not the fire-starting parts, but the knobs,
baskets, hinge parts, etc. Anything that may prove useful as spare parts,
remove and stash somewhere. Trash the rest. If it is a possible fire hazard,
do NOT pass it on to anyone.

Could it be that you don't want someone to suffer the injuries that
would result in your being sued? You didn't even think of that, did
you?

I didn't learn much in my year in law school, but one of the first
things I learned was that if it weren't for the fear of getting sued,
a lot of people would show no thought for anyone but themselves.

My first thoughts
are to take it to the nearest appliance junk place and get rid of it.


Good. Do that.

You've been paid for it already.

If anyone should get a few bucks out it, it should be the burn unit at
a hospital.

Just curious,

buffalo ny: save the dishwasher's silverware basket, i'm using one for
a desk organizer right now., scissors, pens, pencils, screwdrivers,
flair pens, etc.
or could be a tool organizer by the workbench.

I wouldn't try to sell the old one to anyone as a dw. Its a
potentially dangerous
and defective product that has been known to cause house fires.

However I'd strip it of any potentially useful parts (knobs) trays, etc.

I would't expect to have to pay to have it hauled awaay. Scrap metal
prices around here being what they are, a local scrap yard might
pay 5 - 15 bucks for it as steel scrap.

Wow, some of you people need to relax. Believe me, I had no intention
of selling the thing as a dishwasher. As a matter of fact, I had
already removed the door and drilled holes in the tub (I'm anal about
that kind of stuff). I was more interested in getting something for
the spare parts.

Thanks to those who provided a useful response. I DO think I'll keep
the fill value and maybe the pump. The recall had to do with the
wiring in the door panel. There really isn't much metal in it. The
whole dishwasher only weighs about 25 pounds. The controls are all
electronic, so I don't see much use for that. That's the kind of
thing I'd like to get something for, but I don't see that happening,
either. The tub is plastic. Only the front panel is metal, so
there's not much for the metal scrap-yard. The local recycle place
only charges $15 to drop it off and they're pretty cool, too.

Thanks again,

Greg Wilkerson

Why would you be worried about getting sued for selling spare parts?

I vote troll.

It is pretty obvious.
