Whirlpool issue update on major washing machine recall (Is yours on the list?) – Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard

Whirlpool have issued a fresh warning for customers across the UK to check if their washing machine is affected by a major product recall.

The latest plea has been made so the manufacturer can provide a free replacement or repair if needed.

We’ve put together everything you need to know about the recall.

What happened?

Towards the end of 2019, Whirlpool identified a potential risk concerning certain models of Hotpoint and Indesit branded washing machines manufactured between 2014 and 2018.

Since launching the recall campaign, Whirlpool say more than four million people have contacted them, with more than 95 per cent already given reassurance and peace of mind that their machine is not affected.
