If you have a Hotpoint or Indesit washing machine, it's important you check whether it's a model with a known fault.
Whirlpool - who own the Hoptpoint and Indesit brands - has identified a fire risk from the door lock system on certain washing machine models.
If you have a washing machine from Hotpoint or Indesit:
1. Unplug and do not use it.
2. Check if it’s a model with a known fault.
3. If it is, contact the Whirlpool freephone hotline 0800 316 1442 or register on the Whirlpool website
(it's important you contact Whirlpool, not Curo, about this).

Note: this washing machine recall is in addition to a similar recall for tumble driers made under the Hotpoint, Indesit, Creda, Swan or Proline brands.
