Ongoing analysis and investigation by the London Fire Brigade safety team has identified a very small number of additional models which are affected by this fire safety risk. The model numbers are:

  • WMFG 741 G UK
  • WMAQG 741 P UK
  • WMAQC 641 P UK

“We also request that all owners of these three additional models check if their appliance is affected, even if they have previously done so.

“We want to send our sincere apologies to our customers for the additional concern caused, and to thank them for taking this important safety precaution.

“People’s safety is Whirlpool’s priority, which is why we are proactively recalling certain models of washing machines manufactured under the Hotpoint and Indesit brands between 2014 and 2018,” said a spokesperson
