A batch of 632,000 sold between 1999 and 2005 has a fault which, in some circumstances, can cause fire.A product alert was issued in July 2011, yet today ITV News is reporting that 478,940 remain unaccounted for.That means only around 25% of the dishwashers have been traced, despite the voluntary efforts of Bosch. The firm placed adverts, sent 850,000 letters and phoned 140,000 customers.They can repair faulty washers for free, taking about an hour. You can check the serial number of your own appliance here www.itv.com/news/2013-03-15/a-million-potentially-unsafe-electricals-could-be-in-uk-homes/
Bunbaker and LondonNinja -how did you get on? Are they coming out to fix your dishwashers?
Thanks for asking. I rang Bosch first thing and, fortunately, our dishwasher isn't dangerous. They asked for some other numbers on the machine and ours has been given a clean bill of health.I am grateful for the heads up on this.Thank you mumsnet
That's a relief. Always safer to have checked
Thanks I found my serial number eventually, engraved very faintly, luckily just outside the numbers.Bump anyway
Kristina, ours is OK, too. Thank you so much for flagging this up, though It's good to know it's safe and that I don't have to handwash stuff
Thanks for this thread. DH sorted the fiery one out, but I was pleased to check, and even more shocked that our " new" dishwasher is actually celebrating its 11th birthday.
You're welcome ninjaIt's my birthday today too -good to know I'm twinned with a dishwasher
