What to do

If you believe you have an affected machine please stop using it immediately and check the below Whirlpool webpage:

https://washingmachinerecall.whirlpool.co.uk/ 

Or call the Whirlpool helpline on

0800 316 1442

If nevertheless you do use your appliance, you should only use cold water cycles of 20C or lower as this significantly reduces the risk

If your washing machine is being recalled, Whirlpool state that you will be able to choose between two options:

  1. A like-for-like replacement washing machine provided free-of-charge
  2. A free-of-charge in-home repair of your appliance
