Samsung recalls about 2.8 million washing machines that could explode

NH1.com

Samsung is voluntarily recalling about 2.8 million of it's top-loading washing machines after reports of more than 730 units exploding.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the drums in these washers may lose balance, triggering excessive vibrations, resulting in the top separating from the washer. This can occur when a high-speed spin cycle is used for bedding, water-resistant or bulky items and presents an injury risk to consumers.

The recall affects 34 of Samsung's top-loading models that were sold from March 2011 to November 2016.

Consumers with a recalled washer can either receive free in-home repair or a rebate that can be applied towards the purchase of a new washer.
