Notification of free-of-charge inspection and repair services for vertical-axis washer-dryers
(There is a risk of emitting smoke or catching fire.)

February 4, 2014


Thank you very much for using Toshiba products.


We have found that there is a possibility that our vertical-axis washer-dryers produced between July 2005 and November 2011 might emit smoke or catch fire during use, due to internal wiring disconnections. We deeply apologize for any inconvenience or worries that this may cause you.

In order for you to continue to use these products without concern, we will inspect and repair them free of charge. If you are using any of the washer-dryers listed below, please stop doing so and contact the help desk listed below.

More particularly, if an E6 or E7 error code is displayed on the control panel of your washer-dryer, there is a possibility of wiring disconnection. Please stop use it immediately, remove the plug from the socket and contact the help desk listed below.

These inspection and repair services cover washer-dryers machines that were manufactured for and sold in the Japanese market only. Washer-dryers and washing machines sold in other countries are not subject to this recall.
