Tumble dryers and washing machines are dangerous devices and should never be left running unattended. Advice I have been giving to customers for my entire career, especially those who wanted time switches fitted during the "Economy Seven" days.
There has been a recent spate of Whirlpool tumble dryers bursting into flame and still people who own these machines are using them as if it "won't happen to them" Perhaps it is because, like myself, they didn't know that Whirlpool own Hotpoint, Creda and Indesit, and it is their machines that are dangerous. This is rather disappointing to me as I have never liked Whirlpool crap but historically have had a tendency to buy Hotpoint. Time for a rethink.
