Not sure who the "eejits" are, seeing as it quite clearly tells you what to do when you fill in the details. Mine is affected too. Tells you that they will contact you with further details and in the meantime clean the filters and use as normal but don't leave it unattended. Pretty straight forward I think.

The eejits are those selling tumble dryer with faults. I'm so happy you got the message telling you all that information. I got one line telling me they would email, they still haven't. So whilst I'm joyful for you. I stand but the eejits comment

its not the first time hotpoint has has trouble like this before it was dishwashers bbc
Mines affected. I might also mention that it only seems to have 1 heat setting as it's always blooming hot even on wool. It also seems to shrink dryer safe items.

I got a phone call on Friday saying Whirlpool were taking over and had a higher safty standard. They said a new part would be fitted but when I read out my serial number he said it would be cheaper to replace. I'm waiting for a call to arrange delivery of my new dryer. 12 months warranty too. Happy bunny.

Nonsense, I'm sure you got a custom form and website that nobody else saw that told you nothing. Other than that they will email..... Something it seems like you think should happen immediately. It's not like there are literally millions of machines and therefore potential millions of customers to respond to though is it......
Purchased mine last year & Keeps burning my clothes
Mine is coming up affected. I have no idea how old it is though so I just guessed 2010....I could be miles out. I'll just wait for them to get in touch! Thanks for posting.
Both the one in my house and the one we bought for my sister are affected. Hope they get in contact soon.
Can you tell me wether model number is recalled TCYL757C6E
Just who are Hot UK Deals anyway? Is this a scam to get you to buy a new dryer? It seems everyone is being told their appliance is at risk.
I'm not sure I believe it.
How does everyone else feel?

So glad seen this post as got my dryer last weekend.
Lost my zafira:( now this:(

Hang on I'll check for you - is their anything else you'd like me to check whilst I'm online? (_;)
Thank you very much, OP, for sharing this.
Mine is also affected - Hotpoint Ultima TCUD97B.
Please take notice of this recall !!
I had a candy tumble dryer which caught on fire, if I wasn't in at the time we would have lost everything luckily we managed to get it out of the house then put fire out with the hosepipe. My husband contacted candy to let them know what had happened because we didnt want it to happen to anyone else as they might not be so lucky.the tumble dryer wasnt on at the time but the power was on at the socket .candy were very good they came and took the machine away to investigate the fault.they then gave us a new machine as a way of an apology for what happened so I'm pleased that they are making people awear of this problem

New member, no posts? Did you just join to type that garbage? The recall is on the manufacturers websites!
Ours are IDV75 and both are affected, but for those asking about this model number and that just visit the link in the post and check?
Thank you. I checked my boyfriends and his is a model effected. We'll look into this
Can someone tell me the link to check Creda please?
