This is the advice provided by Whirlpool from their website about what to do should your washing machine be affected
What should people do with their washing machine between now and when you recall them?
We want to do everything we can to keep our customers safe.
That’s why, to avoid all risk associated with the use of your machine, you should unplug your washing
machine and stop using it.
We know washing machines are part of people’s everyday lives, and we apologise sincerely for the
inconvenience this will cause. Your safety is our top priority and must come first.
If nevertheless you do choose to use your appliance, you should only use cold water cycles of 20C or
lower as this significantly reduces the risk. This is because the issue is associated with the washing
machine’s heating element being activated during washing cycles above 20C
