News today that Whirlpool is being forced to recall the problematic tumble dryers that were sold by Indesit before Whirlpool bought the business.

The government is said to be planning to issue a recall notice for up to half a million tumble dryers four years after the story broke and the recall started.

If you think you own an affected Hotpoint, Indesit or Creda dryer you can call the helpline for free on 0800 151 0905.

It is widely estimated that there were 5.3 million of these dryers sold in the UK but it's thought that about 500,000 are still in use. It is thought that this "unprecedented" recall notes is applicable to those tumble dryers.

In April this year, the Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS) published a report, urging Whirlpool to improve its risk management, and "reach affected consumers in more creative ways" to minimise the risk of faulty machines still being in people's homes.

It would appear that this has initiated this action.

In a statement, Whirlpool said: "We remain committed to resolving any affected tumble dryers that have not yet been modified.

"To this end, we are in ongoing discussions with the Office for Product Safety and Standards to agree additional measures we have proposed to reach consumers who have not yet engaged with this safety programme.

"We have co-operated with OPSS throughout its recent review of the programme and welcome its findings that consumers whose tumble dryers have been modified can continue to use them safely."
