Whirlpool tumble dryer recall

The government is undertaking an "unprecedented" recall of potentially dangerous tumble dryers.

Up to 500,000 Whirlpool tumble dryers are thought to be at risk of lint fires.

The company has fixed most appliances at risk, but last month the government warned owners of the 500,000 unmodified dryers to unplug them immediately.

It comes four years after Whirlpool issued a warning after it found its Hotpoint, Creda and Indesit dryers had a fault which needed fixing.

The fault was blamed for some 750 fires.

Whirlpool said safety was its number one priority and urged anyone still owning an affected dryer to contact the company immediately on 0800 151 0905.
