Following Whirlpool's acquisition of the Hotpoint/Indesit brands, Indesit Company has closely reviewed the safety of its product portfolio.

Whirlpool branded tumble dryers are not affected by this safety notice.
We are activating an extensive consumer outreach and service action plan in order to provide our consumers with products that are updated to higher safety and quality standards. We will arrange a visit from an engineer, free of charge, to modify your appliance. The service call will take approximately one hour. The improvements we believe are necessary will further enhance the safety and quality of your dryer.
You should unplug and do not use the tumble dryer before a modification has taken place. If your tumble dryer has already been modified or you have purchased a replacement machine from ourselves then no further action is required.
