Manufacturer Whirlpool has estimated that there are still at least 1 million faulty appliances still being used in homes throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
The faulty appliances are tumble dryers sold under brand names such as Indesit, Creda and Hotpoint.
It is these products that have been responsible for a number of house fires throughout the UK since 2012 and sadly have also caused a number of deaths and and a great number of people to lose their homes.
