Some sympathies and concerns over the attempt to contact owners of tumble dryers.
So many young people are so apathetic about stuff. Many won't read such items of news, They will not have completed a Warranty Form when they bought it. They may not know what make of dryer they own. Cleaning the filter is too difficult and they won't have read the instructions.
Someone once told me theirs is better when the filter is blocked as it gets hotter!!!!!

I was speaking to a person not that young but younger than me. She said her daughter thought the shower was rubbish. It seems the issue is water pressure. I asked - the mother not the daughter - whether it was a combi boiler or a hot water tank and she said she had no idea.
There was an item in the Diary page of our paper about a bank employee using a calculator to work out the value of six £20 notes.

Typical. What model iPhone did she have? I bet she knows that.

I'm not surprised that people don't bother to fill in and send back the guarantee registration postcard. For generations manufacturers have lied that it's needed to validate the guarantee, when it's just a marketing ploy to see how many people have actually bought the things rather than them languishing in warehouses. Or so someone can ring you up and try to sell you some kind of white goods insurance for years afterwards.
And what if you move house and take it with you, or move house and gift it to the new occupants?

Doesn't help when parts of the media are incompetent on passing on the vital information.
There was this article
https://metro.co.uk/2019/06/12/whirlpool-tells-people-unplug-tumble-dryers-immediately-9915354/
in the London edition of the Metro newspaper expressing shock and dismay about the situation, about Whirlpool's failed attempts to contact affected owners, and absolutely nothing to help owners identify if their machine was included in the recall.
And then this line
‘The crucial message to anyone who still owns an affected dryer and has not already had it modified by Whirlpool is to contact us immediately on 0800 151 0905.'

Yes I assume this should have been glued onto the product recall thread. I came across one some years back where a kind of self adhesive raised plastic name tag of the Kitchen maker had been put over the original makers name, in that case Candy. Why would they do that? Seems terribly tacky. Brian
