Update: Hotpoint/Indesit/Creda Tumble Dryers Safety Notice

on Fri, 14/06/2019 - 1:29pm

Whirlpool have previously identified a concern with certain tumble dryers manufactured by their brands Hotpoint, Indesit & Creda between April 2004 and September 2015, where fluff can come into contact with the heating element and present a risk of fire.

The government has now stepped in to order Whirlpool to issue a recall of the remaining, unmodified appliances - a move that would require the company to offer refunds or replacements.

If your tumble dryer is affected by this issue, you should unplug it and not use it.
