Lint may accumulate in the dryer, creating a fire hazard

Electrolux Home Products of Charlotte, N.C., is recalling about 13,600 Frigidaire gas laundry centers.

The felt seal on the dryer drum can be folded inward which can lead to lint accumulation, creating a fire hazard.

The company has received 23 reports of fire and one report of a smoke inhalation injury.

This recall involves all Frigidaire gas laundry centers with model numbers FFLG4033QW and FFLG4033QT, and serial numbers FFLG4033QWX and 4E44308482 through 4E81603380.

The laundry centers were sold in white and titanium colors and have “FRIGIDAIRE” written below the dryer door.

The serial number is located on a white sticker inside the dryer door.

The laundry centers, manufactured in Mexico, were sold at Lowe’s, Home Depot, and other independent appliance stores nationwide from October 2014, through April 2018, for about $1,400.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the dryer of the recalled Laundry Centers and contact Electrolux Group for a free inspection, repair and lint removal service.

Consumers may continue to use the washer, which is unaffected by the issue.

Electrolux Group is contacting known purchasers directly.
