    WASHINGTON – Whirlpool Corp.'s Maytag unit is recalling about 1.7 million dishwashers because of a fire hazard.

    The Consumer Product Safety Commission, which announced the recall Thursday, says the company, part of Whirlpool Corp., has received 12 reports of electrical failures in the dishwasher heating element that led to fires and damage.

    One kitchen fire caused extensive damage, the agency said. No injuries have been reported.
