The manufacturer has issued the following safety notice:
Indesit are aware of a small number of cases of dishwashers where an electrical component has failed. This may lead to overheating and in rare cases a potential fire hazard. Our absolute priority is to locate and modify every dishwasher that is affected.
If you own an Indesit dishwasher manufactured between June 2007 and July 2010, with the affected serial numbers (please check your model/serial number below) and sold in the UK or Ireland.
While you are waiting for an engineer visit we recommend you do not leave the dishwasher unattended whilst in use.
We would also like to inform consumers that this problem does not affect any Indesit or Hotpoint model on sale today.
