Whirlpool Washing Machine Recall

Alert message sent 18/12/2019 14:43:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch Scotland

Whirlpool are recalling washing machines branded as Hotpoint or Indesit as there is a risk that the door locking system can overheat creating the risk of fire.

Whirlpool has set up a model checker online to allow consumers to find out if their product is affected.  Owners of Hotpoint and Indesit washing machines bought since October 2014 will need to enter the model and serial number of their appliance, found inside the door or on the back, to see if it is one of those affected.  The online checker can be found at,


There is also a free helpline, open every day, available on 0800 316 1442.

Whirlpool have stated that if you find that your machine is affected, to eliminate any risk, the appliance should be unplugged and not used until it is repaired by a trained engineer.  As an alternative, those affected will also be offered a replacement with a safe model.
