BSH Home Appliances Corporation has voluntarily agreed to conduct a safety recall to replace the power cords on certain models of Bosch, Thermador, Gaggenau and Kenmore Elite brand dishwashers. This safety recall involves power cords that were manufactured by an external supplier and sold with certain dishwashers manufactured from January 2008 through December 2013 and sold in the United States and Canada.

There have been 10 incidents of which 5 resulted in property damage. No injuries have been reported.

BSH is working in full cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safet Commission and Health Canada to quickly recall and replace the affected power cords.
