I have collected alot of pictures of burnt washing machines and have made a video of it. No music is playing but i think thats ok. Some pics come from sweden, some Usa, Germany and other places.
I have tried to identify the brands of the machines. The machines in the video are as follows (with reservation i may be wrong on some machines but i,m pretty sure i,m right most of the time)
Bosch Siemens (11)
Servis Group (2)
Undknown Machines (9)
Zanussi Group (13)

I think most of those fires aren't from the machine blowing up, more like they have actually been set on fire, or they were in a house fire caused by other things.
I think there has been more reported cases of indesit & Ariston fires than there has Bosch & Siemens ones.

Its not always easy know if its the dryer or washing machine that have caught fire. Not even when the firefighters have stopped the fires. Its true that Ariston and Indesit have had many fire cases. Zanussi machine have also a reputation for cathing fire. I,m thinking about these machines you see it has started in the programmer.

This gives you something to think about, most all of these pictures
look like the washing machine was the cause of the fire, something
shorted out in the switching, or electronocs, Possible the water heating switching, I wonder if they had been
on a Ground Fault Interuptor circuit if some of these would not have

What is it about the Zanussi machines that makes them catch fire? I noticed a few of those in the video were older 80s models which (at least in the UK) had a reputation of being very reliable and well engineered. I have two of these machines myself and definitely agree with this.
