Whirlpool product recall notices
You may have seen adverts recently about some faulty Whirlpool and Hotpoint products that pose a potential fire risk.
If you have a Whirlpool or Hotpoint tumble dryer that was made before 2015 you need to check if it is one of the affected models.
If it is, you should unplug the machine and stop using it until it has been made safe. Whirlpool and Hotpoint have a variety of free replacement or repair options.
Some Hotpoint and Indesit brand washing machines made between 2014 and 2018 may pose a risk, and you should check if you have one of the affected models.
If you do, you should unplug the machine and stop using it until it has been made safe. You will have the choice of a free replacement, or a free repair.
