I have a leak in my Whirlpool tumble dryer

During the manufacturing process, we ensure your tumble dryer is thoroughly tested so there is no leaks to internal componants after you have installed your appliance.

If you experience any leaking before or during your first use, it is most likely due to there being water still in the tumble dryer from the testing process.

Please also check the water supply connection (from both sides) as well as the drain hose itself.

If you need any further help, please call us on 0344 822 4224.

There appears to be no electrical supply to my tumble dryer

Please check the socket that your appliance was plugged in in by using another piece of equipment, this will ensure that the issue does not lie with the socket rather than the appliance itself.

Your tumble dryer comes fitted with a 13 amp 3 pin plug and also the lead, so please make sure that the right rating of fuse is being used with this.

We do not recommend the use of the appliance with an extension lead.

Please also ensure that the start or on/off switch is in the correct position, and that the door is properly closed.

If you need further help please call our customer service team on 0344 822 4224.

My dial is not rotating

On certain Whirlpool models the dryer programmer does not rotate. Instead, a series of progress indicator lights illuminate to advise the user of the dryer status.
