If you own a washing machine or tumble dryer, it might need to be replaced or repaired.
The Whirlpool Corporation has recalled certain models of washing machine and tumble dryer, including models by other brands.
This is because some devices have a fault that can make them overheat and catch fire.
We asked you to check your devices earlier in the year, but if you’re a washing machine owner it’s important that you now check again.
