On 19th December 2019 we published a blog post regarding the news that Whirlpool had recalled a number of Hotpoint and Indesit washing machines due to the risk that they could catch fire due to a fault with the door lock, which causes the appliance to overheat.  It was in the news yesterday, 29th April, that Whirlpool have since added a further 21 models to the recall list.

We have contacted tenants in our managed properties, but we urge everyone else to check your washing machines and washer dryers for the following model numbers:

  • WMAQB 641P UK
  • WMAQB 721P UK
