More than 20,000 gas dryers made by LG Electronics and Sears’ brand Kenmore Elite, have been recalled because they could catch on fire. Their gas valve may fail to shut off, causing the dryer to continually heat after the cycle is finished, posing a risk for a fire. So far, the two companies have had 141 complaints, three for minor burns to hands or arms, and more than 50 for burnt clothing.
If you own one of these dryers, turn off the gas supply and stop using it until it can be repaired. For those who bought their dryers at Sears, call your local store; otherwise, contact LG for instructions on what to do next. The model and serial numbers of your dryer can be found on a label fixed to the front of the dryer, above the opened door.
