Safety Agency, Samsung Recall 2.8 Million Top-Loading Washing Machines

Recommended Posts

 TOPGUN    123

The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Samsung Friday announced a recall of 2.8 million of the company’s top-loading washing machines following reports that some exploded.

The safety agency said Samsung has received 733 reports of “excessive vibration or the top detaching from the washing machine chassis.” It added that the reports include nine injuries, including one person who suffered a broken jaw.

People who own one of the top-loaders can get a free in-home repair, which includes a one-year warranty extension. (This option isn’t available now for mid-control models, Samsung said.)

Owners can also opt for a rebate toward the purchase of another washing machine, including one from another brand. The amount depends on when the machine was made and the model. Owners who buy another Samsung washer get up to $150 more. This part of the deal also includes free installation and removal of the old washing machine.

People who bought their machines in the last 30 days can also choose to receive a full refund.
