Hotpoint is aware of a small number of cases of dishwashers where an electrical component has failed. This may lead to overheating and in rare cases cause a potential fire hazard. A total of 13,669 of these branded dishwashers have been sold in Ireland between 1999 and mid 2003 through a number of retail outlets.
No other Hotpoint dishwashers are affected by this safety alert.
What to do
1. Check the model number of your Hotpoint dishwasher. This can be found on a sticker on the inside of the door. The model numbers are also found on the front of the appliance. As a precaution, make sure the appliance is turned off.
