Hotpoint-Indesit-Creda tumble dryers:

Following Whirlpool's acquisition of the Hotpoint/Indesit brands, Indesit Company has closely reviewed the safety of its product portfolio.

As part of this review they have identified a potential concern with two types of tumble dryers manufactured between April 2004 and September 2015. In some rare cases, excess fluff can come into contact with the heating element and present a risk of fire.

The affected brands are:

Hotpoint
Indesit
Creda

Indesit are activating an extensive consumer outreach and service action plan in order to provide their consumers with products that are updated to higher safety and quality standards, and they will arrange a visit from an engineer, free of charge, to modify your appliance. The service call will take approximately one hour.

The improvements they believe are necessary will further enhance the safety and quality of your dryer.

Indesit say that you may continue to use your tumble dryer whilst waiting for the modification, however, for safety's sake it is require that you do not leave your dryer unattended during operation as an extra precaution (i.e. do not leave the house or leave the dryer on whilst asleep). Additionally, you should check and clean the filter after every cycle and ensure proper dryer venting, as directed in the original operating manual.

To Check your tumble dryer Please use the 'self service' model checker to confirm if your appliance is affected and for next steps should your model require corrective action.
