Whirlpool must refund fire-risk washing machine customers

As Whirlpool launches its recall of over 500,000 fire-risk Hotpoint and Indesit washing machines, we’re urging the company to offer its customers a refund.

Whirpool are offering customers of affected machines a free repair or like-for-like replacement – but this isn’t enough.

We’re urging Whirlpool to offer consumers a full refund (and reimbursement for any out-of-pocket expenses) caused by the recall, so people can quickly find a replacement for this essential household appliance.
