THE HOTPOINT Washing machine that nearly burnt our home down & would have killed our dog... well today our home was at very high risk, of fire but it's lucky i was here. we have a HOTPOINT eco WMYL 7151 washing machine. This morning i was doing stuff about the home and thought what's the weird smell. made my way to the kitchen area and smoke was heavy in the kitchen. Pouring out of the washing machine. It was horrible and scary. I hit the mains power switch on the wall which feeds the electric power to the washing machine. went on-line to hotpoint, entered the serial no: and product no: and hotpoint gave it a green sign to say it's OK not one of those listed by the BBC last year. We was just lucking i was at home that morning or we would of had no home or dog to come home too. just be WARNED peeps HOTPOINT web-site give these machines a green light to say they are SAFE but clearly they are NOT. e-mailed hotpoint this morning and 12 hours later still heard NOTHING be warned peeps if you got this model and make ours soked so badly i do believe if no-one was home it would of burst into flames and had no home left. please pass this on if you know anyone with this make and model UPDTE: It's now Sunday 18th March and we still have had no reply from hotpoint.
