Whirlpool: New warning over fire-prone Hotpoint washing machines
Another 55,000 washing machines in UK homes should stop being used and need repairing or replacing owing to a fire risk. An extra 21 models have been added to the list of 524,000 Hotpoint and Indesit machines being recalled. Owners may have checked previously and been told their machines were safe, only now to need to check again. 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 in January. 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.
