There's been a recent update to the Whirlpool washing machine recall and with more machines now on the list, we, of course, wanted to share the news with you. Whirlpool has been proactively recalling certain models of washing machine since January this year because of a fire safety risk. This risk has come about because of a fault in the washing machine door construction, causing a host of Hotpoint and Indesit washing machine models to overheat.
