Re Tumble dryer recall. I have a Swan tumble dryer model no

This answer was rated:

Re Tumble dryer recall. I have a Swan tumble dryer model no STC407WB(UK) 7kg B Class. Is this one of the at-risk appliances?
JA: Who makes your dryer? How old is it?
Customer: Manufacturer is Swan. Previously owned by my daughter, so not sure of age. Would guess it is over 5 years old.
JA: How long has this been going on with your dryer? What have you tried so far?
Customer: There is nothing wrong with it. Was just wondering if it is a model which Whirlpool are recalling.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No. Whirlpool are recalling some models as they are a fire risk. Heard on TV this morning that Swan is one of the makes they are investigating and are asking customers to contact them.
