The electrical giant Hotpoint has been accused of waiting too long to warn the public about thousands of potentially dangerous dishwashers.
A safety alert has been issued in relation to dishwasher models FDW20, FDW60 and DW65A after it was discovered 71,000 were a potential fire hazard.
Following yesterday's report on the faulty model, ITV News were contacted by one viewer whose dishwasher caught fire last July.
ITV News Consumer Editor Chris Choi reports:
Martin Squires' Hotpoint dishwasher caught fire last July - before a safety notice was issued by the company about faulty models.
Hotpoint has issued a safety notice over for 71,000 of its dishwashers which could be a potential fire hazard.
A Norfolk couple have described how a blaze at their home was caused by a faulty dishwasher as they waited for a visit from an engineer.
