Ariston and Indesit Tumble Dryers


Date posted

The Hazard

If the lint/fluff piece is significant in mass and density, the ignited lint/fluff may result in flames that could extend through the inlet grill into the drum and potentially ignite the clothes load in the drum.

What to do

If you have an affected dryer contact Arisit Pty Ltd (NZ) to arrange for the free of charge modification.

You may continue to use your tumble dryer whilst waiting for the free of charge modification, however, we require that you do not leave your dryer unattended during operation as an extra precaution (i.e. do not leave the house or leave the dryer on whilst asleep).


Affected dryers were available from August 2004 at Harvey Norman, Betta Electrical, Noel Leeming and Smith City stores nationwide.

The Problem

Lint/fluff may collect around the rear drum seal of affected dryers and potentially dislodge and fall near the dryer heater, which could result in the lint/fluff becoming ignited.

Product Identifiers

Dryer types affected:
- Air vented tumble dryers
- Condensing tumble dryers
