Fire-risk warning over Whirlpool owned dryers

A safety warning for a number of Whirlpool owned dryers was discovered. The fire risk affects certain large vented and condensing tumble dryers, which were sold under the brand names Hotpoint, Indesit and Creda in the UK and abroad between April 2004 and October 2015.

The fault discovered could expose the dryers to a fire risk when excess fluff touches the heating element.
