What if my tumble dryer has already been checked?

If you have already received a visit from an engineer in the past five years, or if your tumble dryer has a green “dot” sticker in the door area or on the back plate, you do not need to worry – your appliance is safe.

Two independent reviews undertaken by a number of experienced safety experts have confirmed the modification that was made to your tumble dryer by our engineers is effective at reducing risk:

  • The first review included experts in consumer product safety and risk assessments as well as a fire safety expert.
  • The second review, undertaken by the Office for Product Safety Standards, was peer reviewed by the Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor.

Both reviews confirmed the risk is low and the modification is effective at reducing risk.
