The Consumer Products Safety Commission has started an investigation into Whirlpool after a lawsuit claims dishwashers made by the company caught fire. The complaint says a design defect in the control panel can cause fires in the machines. The brands involved in the complaint are KichenAid, Kenmore, and Whirlpool. Whirlpool also has begun an internal investigation into the reports. The CPSC wants anyone who has had a problem or concern with a Whirlpool dishwasher to call them.
