Washing machine owners must re-check for fire risk
Owners of Hotpoint and Indesit washing machines may have to check again to see whether their model is on a recall list of fire-prone appliances. About 20% of the Hotpoint and Indesit washing machines sold since 2014 are affected by a safety fault and need to be recalled, a process that started earlier this month. Owners of Hotpoint and Indesit washing machines bought since October 2014 will need to enter the model and serial number of their appliance - found inside the door or on the back - to see if it is one of those affected. The company said it could contact 60% of those with the newly affected models, but customers should check. The company has already been dealing with the recall of more than five million tumble dryers, sold over 11 years, which were found to be a fire danger.
