I vaguely remember hearing on a consumer programme about a recall for a Hotpoint dishwasher, and checking my own to find out that it was not one of those affected. Then I guess I forgot all about it. That is until I read about the case brought against Hotpoint.
In January 2013, 6 months before the recall notice went out, a family's dishwasher did catch fire and it destroyed their house. The family brought a claim against Hotpoint for the smoke inhalation suffered as a result of the fire and Hotpoint agreed to pay them damages of £5000 for their injuries. That would have been in addition to their insurance claim for the damage to the property.
I regularly leave my dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer all going while I'm out of the house and I'm sure that many of you do too. So I thought maybe I shouldn't. But then, would I rather the house caught fire while I was out or at home?
