The following notice has been issued by Very:
Swan Washing Machine – SW1010 and SW1020
The following important safety notice has been issued by the manufacturer:
We have identified a problem with two models of Swan washing machine sold between 2010 and 2012.
A small number of these washing machines have failed in use due to a fault with the internal control unit. This can lead to overheating during use and, in some cases there is a small risk of a fire developing. Therefore, we are taking the precautionary step of replacing the control units on all affected items.
