Washing machine recall

Washing machine recall

Whirlpool has announced it’s recalling hundreds of thousands of fire-risk washing machines. As many as 519,000 washing machines sold under the Hotpoint and Indesit brands between October 2014 and February 2018 could be affected by a flaw with the door-locking system that could lead to them overheating and potentially catching fire.

Whirlpool has urged owners of appliances bought since 2014 to contact Whirlpool immediately to check if their washing machine is one of the models affected.

In the meantime, it has advised customers to unplug their washing machines and not use them.

Under the recall, customers will have the choice of either a free-of-charge like-for-like replacement washing machine, or a free-of-charge in-home repair of their existing appliance.

Customers can check if their washing machine is affected by visiting Whirlpool's recall website, or they can call Whirlpool's freephone hotline 0800 316 1442.
