We've given the Hotpoint FTCF87BGG tumble dryer our Don't Buy warning label, as older models of this dryer are subject to a fire risk safety alert issued by the manufacturer. The safety alert concerns versions of this machine that were made before October 2015. Models made after this date are not affected by the issue. If you already own one of these machines, you can check if yours is one of the affected models by looking for a green dot sticker on the inside of the door at the top, on the door itself or on the door rim. Also check the back of the machine in the middle and towards the top. If your dryer has a sticker in any of these locations, Hotpoint says it is not one of the affected machines. If your dryer does not have a green dot sticker, contact Hotpoint to arrange for it to be serviced or modified. You can do this through the website safety.hotpoint.eu or by calling Hotpoint on 0800 151 0905. Below is our full review of this tumble dryer, which was written before the safety alert was issued and is based on the model's performance in our lab tests. This also applies to all post-October 2015 models.
