Whirlpool was forced to issue a recall for the faulty machines in July this year, but thousands may still have the fire-risk dryers in their homes as the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Committee warns the response was “too slow”.

“A matter of urgency”

The group of MPs have released a report criticising the company for its slow response in modifying or replacing the faulty machines, while also condemning Whirlpool for its use of non-disclosure agreements to “silence customers”.

Whirlpool initially launched a full product recall involving 500,000 dryers, after being ordered by the Office for Product Safety and Standards earlier this year.

In July, the company admitted that as many as 800,000 faulty dryers could still be in UK homes and it was working to modify those affected.

Whirlpool said it had located just over 100,000 of the faulty machines in the following two months, but many are still thought to not have been modified or removed from people’s homes.

Owners who have not yet had their dryers modified or replaced are being urged to get in touch “as a matter of urgency”.

A full list of all the fire-risk models was released by the company in July, naming 627 models in total, with just over 300 of those being appliances sold outside of the UK, according to Which?
