Please note that if your dryer is not listed here it is not affected by this recall

The Problem

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).

I was also offer a vented dryer for £50.00 or condenser dryer for £99.00. I still to this day have not received the phone call which was supposed to be in Aug/Sept of this year. Can you please help

Hi Jeanette,

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.

Hi Kenneth.

Can you at least confirm if this is one of the affected ones please???
Also everyone I speak/e-mail cannot give me a telephone number to contact for White knight direct. The telephone number on google of 0800 952 1102 tell me that they do not deal with it and do not know of another number to ring??

Thanks Jeanette
