Creda, Hotpoint, Indesit Tumble Dryer Fire Risk!

Indesit logo

Certain models of condenser and vented tumble dryers sold over the last 11 years under the Creda, Hotpoint, and Indesit brands in the UK have been issued with fire risk warnings.

The companies are currently in the process of contacting customers who may be affected, and an online tool is available on the Indesit website to check if your tumble dryer is a fire risk.

Safety warning on the Indesit and Hotpoint websites say “In some rare cases, excess fluff can come into contact with the heating element and present a risk of fire.” and customers are advised not to leave their appliance running unattended.

The warning was issued after Whirlpool conducted an investigation into tumble dryers sold by Hotpoint and Indesit between April 2004 and September 2015.

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius TDC30P which I purchased some years ago, but cannot say exactly how many.I think it was more than 8 years and I bought it at John Lewis. After seeing about the recall on ‘This Morning’ I have just read that at least 18 of this particular model have caught fire. Please can you tell me how you will deal with this. I thankyou in antiscipation and look forward to your reply. Yours truly Carol Diack
