Be aware of your

appliances

Faulty tumble dryers, washing machines and fridges are

among the most-common household items that cause more

than 60 fires in UK homes every week.

Data collected over a two-year period showed that faulty

washing machines and tumble dryers caused 35% of fires

in that time. Cookers and ovens, dishwashers, fridges and

freezers were also listed as high-risk.

Recently, some Whirlpool tumble dryers have been recalled.

127 Hotpoint, Indesit, Creda, Swan and Proline models made

between April 2004 and October 2015 have been affected

after they were found to be a high fire-risk.

You can check to see if your tumble

dryer model is part of the recall at

dryerrecall.whirlpool.co.uk

You can also call Whirlpool on

0800 151 0905 to find out.

If the appliance is registered to you, you may have already

received information about the product. However, if it was

bought second-hand or has not been registered, then you

may not have been made aware.
