Jeff Noel’s message to the owners of the products;
While we work to provide you with a replacement or repair, to avoid all risk associated with the use of your washing machine, please unplug and stop using it. If you do continue to use your appliance, you should only use cold water cycles of 20 degrees celsius or lower. This is because the issue is associated with the washing machine’s heating element being activated during washing cycles above 20 degrees.
If you would like to raise a complaint about your Whirlpool recall, you can use Resolver for free.
