18th March 2016Beware Of Tumble Dryer Fire Risks Posted By : Admin/ 0 comments / Under : Latest News Public Loss Adjusters warn about the risk of your tumble dryer catching fire, it has been highlighted in the news recently and quite often that some models of tumble dryers run the risk of catching fire. In last November, the home appliance giants Whirlpool announced that their own brands of dryers such as Hotpoint, Indesit and Creda all have the risk of catching fire. Whirlpool have contacted more than three million customers offering each of them a repair to ensure that it doesn’t catch fire or money off a new replacement dryer. To ensure that the solution to this problem is swiftly concluded, they have hired 300 more engineers to come out to your home and fix your current tumble dryer to eradicate the threat of it catching fire and causing damage to your home or putting your family at risk. Whirlpool have also said that there could be a huge wait on the repairs reaching as far as January 2017. The fire happens because the brands of Hotpoint, Indesit and Creda have identified a fault that allows lint to build up against the heating element inside the tumble dryer. The guardian newspaper also reports that the Whirlpool company have stated “We are confident that this timeline will be reduced as we continue to register customers, recruit more engineers and increase the resourcing of our call centre”. Whirlpool have advised consumers not to leave their tumble dryer unattended whilst drying their clothes and to certainly not leave the drying machine on when they leave the house due to the risk of the appliance catching fire.
