HOTPOINT, INDESIT, CREDA TUMBLE DRIERS: SAFETY RECALL

HOTPOINT, INDESIT, CREDA TUMBLE DRIERS: SAFETY RECALL

Hotpoint, Indesit, Creda recall faulty tumble dryers.

A corrective campaign to remedy possible safety and quality issues focused on dryers sold under the brand names of Hotpoint, Indesit and Creda between April 2004 and October 2015 has been announced.

An outreach and service campaign is underway to modify two types of products that have already been sold and modifications have been implemented at the point of manufacture to ensure that dryers produced after October 2015 are not affected by this issue.

Indesit owner Whirlpool said consumers may continue to use the affected dryers until they are modified through the outreach and service campaign, provided they are not left unattended during operation. If left unmodified, in some rare cases, excess fluff can come into contact with the heating element and present a risk of fire.
