RECALL: Tumble Dryers Identified As Fire Hazard

11 models recalled

RECALL: Tumble Dryers Identified As Fire Hazard

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 ariston.dryer@arisit.com 

Some machines have already been modified. If you're not sure, check the back or inside of the door for a green sticker.
