Whirlpool issues yet another recall

Appliance manufacturer, Whirlpool is to recall an additional 55,000 washing machines after identifying possible faults in a further 21 models. This comes almost five months after its original recall of 500,000 units due to fire risk.

Under the recall, consumers with an affected washing machine will be entitled to a free replacement. Old machines will be removed, and replacements installed, at no cost to the consumer.

This latest safety announcement and recall follows ongoing scrutiny by the Office for Product Safety and Standards, which has been monitoring data supplied by Whirlpool since the company first identified the issue.
