Please note that if your dryer is not listed here it is not affected by this recall
It has come to our attention that a purchased connector component has been supplied to us which is not to our specification and that this has been fitted to 1800 White Knight Condenser dryers built in Oct 2010. We believe that the use of this connector can potentially lead to overheating of the appliance and if left unresolved could create a potential fire hazard over time. We wish to find all of the affected dryers which lie within the serial numbers below, and replace them free of charge in order to eliminate the risk.
How To Check If Your Tumble Dryer Is Affected
We are trying to identify the location of these machines in order to remove the potential risk associated with this connector. First, please check if you have one of the models listed above, and if so, please check whether your appliance has a serial number from the following list of potentially affected batches (the model and serial number can be found inside the door of your dryer as shown in the diagram).
What To Do If Your Tumble Dryer Is Affected
If your dryer has a serial number within any of the affected batches, please stop using it and disconnect it from the mains outlet as a precautionary measure, and call us on the following telephone number in order for us to arrange for your dryer to be replaced free of charge.

I have no idea who you have been in contact with but, we do not deal with that at all I am afraid so you will need to find out who you have been in contact with and get back in touch with them to sort that for you.
