There's a nationwide recall on some tumble dryers.
Eleven Ariston and Indesit models have been deemed a fire risk, because of the potential for lint/fluff to dislodge from the rear drum seal, fall into the dryer's heater and spark a blaze.
MODELS: ASL70CX(AUS), ASL700CX(AUS), AQCF851BU(AUS), TCF87B6H1(AUS), AQC8BF7T1(AUS), AS60VX(AUS), IS60V(AUSA), AS600VX(AUS), IDV65(AUS), TVF75C6H1(AUS), IDVA735X(AUS)
If you have one of the affected models, you're being told to unplug and stop using it until a Whirlpool engineer has been out to make a modification.
Whirlpool will cover the cost of the engineer. The call out will take about an hour.
To arrange a modification, you should call Arisit on 1300 762 219 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Some machines have already been modified. If you're not sure, check the back or inside of the door for a green sticker.
