Which? magazine recently published an article advising that Hotpoint is recalling some of its dishwashers due to a potential fire risk.
The Hotpoint dishwashers affected were manufactured between June 2006 and March 2007 and include models: FDW201, FDW601 and FDW65A.
To check if you own one of these potentially faulty dishwashers, check the model and serial number by looking at the sticker on the inside of the dishwasher door. The serial numbers of the models are nine digits long, with the first five digits containing numbers between 60601 and 70331.
If you discover that you own one of the models affected, call Hotpoint’s customer service line on 08448 910094 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Hotpoint says that it will repair affected dishwashers free of charge in your home.
You can also check if your dishwasher is affected by using the Electric Safety Council’s online tool.
