Earlier this year we advised that Whirlpool tumble dryers are being recalled and urge you to check the model of your dryer.
The recall is affecting tumble dryers under the brands Hotpoint, Indesit, Creda, Swan and Proline made between 2004 and 2015.
If you do have one of the above you will have the option to:
- Have your dryer replaced free of charge
- Opt for an upgrade
- Have it fixed by an engineer
- Choose a refund - depending on the age of the product
If you are unsure if your dryer is affected, you can check this on the Whirlpool website here.
The Government estimates that the fault affecting these tumble dryers has caused up to 750 fires in the last 11 years, so it's vital that you check the model of your dryer and either have the project replaced or fixed.
