Tens of thousands of washing machines sold in Australia are being recalled amid fears they could cause an electric shock.

If water or detergent was inadvertently spilt on the lids of 11 brands of Simpson and Electrolux machine models, it could cause an electric shock, Australian Fair Trading Minister Virginia Judge has warned.

It is unknown at present if this fault affects any UK or European models produced by the Electrolux Group.

"If spillage occurs, users may experience a mild tingling sensation in their fingertips when they touch the top of the machine," she said.

"While the manufacturer advises there is no serious risk, consumers need to be aware of the possibility of an electric shock."

Nearly 185,000 Simpson and Electrolux machines have been sold in Australia and New Zealand since September 2007 are being recalled, including more than 56,000 in NSW.

"If consumers are concerned, they should stop using the machine immediately," Ms Judge said.

"The manufacturer will make arrangements for a service technician to repair the machine free of charge."
