Are you aware that millions of households across Britain could be invalidating their home insurance if they own a tumble dryer?
Whirlpool, who own the Indesit, Hotpoint and Creda brands, are currently in the process of repairing or replacing 4.3 million potentially faulty machines after letters went out warning owners that their dryers could burst into flames at any moment!
Potentially fatal if excess fluff catches the heating element, Whirpool have instructed customers to use the faulty machines as usual under the condition that they don’t leave them unattended and to check and clean the filter after each cycle. However with dozens of household fires now being linked to tumble dryers across the country, safety experts have warned against using affected tumble dryers all together.
So with conflicting advice from both parties, there is a real growing concern amongst Whirpool customers regarding the validity of their home insurance policies if they continue to use these machines. But the problem is that customers are currently waiting up to 11 months for an engineer to visit them, so many are now stuck between a rock and a hard place!
Martyn Allen of Electrical Safety First said: “We urge the public not to use any affected appliance at all until it has been inspected and declared safe by the manufacturer’s engineer.”

A scary thought, but a reason to make sure all your tenants take out contents insurance…
Did you know tenants are now the 1st most common cause of rent arrears in the UK.
But whilst all LL have fire insurance, very few have RGI
Which is more prevalent!!?
Somehow I think rent default is
But for some reason most LL don’t seem to think RGI is something worth having!
