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.

The Indesit Company have set up the following two web pages for customers with affected models: +

  • Easy Communication to book a call out, clear pricing too. When Neil the engineer arrived he quickly investigated the problem, found needed to be done & fixed the issue with confidence! We'd previously been told we needed to get a new oven, so him being able to repair it instead was a relief! He went over & above and i would not hesitate to recommend him
  • Neil was very professional and extremely helpful in repairing the pilot lights and replacing knobs on our Rangemaster cooker. All is now working again perfectly. He communicated brilliantly by email and phone and gave us 25 minutes’ notice of arrival so we were able to be ready for him. Neil also gave us very helpful and accurate advice about our Miele washing machine. We are very happy to have found someone so reliable and professional to have helped us with these repairs. Thank you!
  • Great prompt service, kept me up to date on parts required and appointments to do the work. I would highly recommend them. Many thanks.
  • Neil from the Domestic Appliance Helpline installed a new fridge for us, as well as a new dishwasher and a new washer and dryer. He advised us well with regard to each appliance and really took the time to help us through the process. The installation to fit all these appliances went without a hitch. He also removed all the old appliances for us so we didn't have to arrange that ourselves. I can't recommend him highly enough.
  • The appliance support Neil provides is brilliant. He is SO responsive and helpful. I have recommended him to many friends and this has been their experience too. With really competitive pricing I would strongly recommend getting in contact with him if you're looking for repairs or a new appliance.
