Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled dishwashers, disconnect the electric supply by shutting off the fuse or circuit breaker controlling it, inform all users of the dishwasher about the risk of fire and contact Maytag to verify if their dishwasher is included in the recall. If the dishwasher is included in the recall, consumers can either schedule a free in-home repair or receive a rebate following the purchase of certain new Maytag brand stainless-steel tub dishwashers. The rebate will be based on the new dishwasher retail purchase price reflected on the sales receipt (excluding sales tax or installation). Maytag will provide consumers with a rebate of $150 on a new Maytag dishwasher with a retail price of $499.00 - $698.99. Or, if consumers choose to purchase a new Maytag dishwasher with a product cost of $699 or more, Maytag will provide consumers with a rebate in the amount of $250. Please note: all rebates are by mail in the form of a prepaid MasterCard® debit card. Consumers should not return the recalled dishwashers to the retailer where purchased as retailers are not prepared to take the units back.
