Some Samsung Top-Load Washing Machines Are at Risk of Coming Apart

On its website, Samsung says people can enter their 15-digit serial number located at the rear of the washer to verify whether their washing machine is part of the notice.

Per an investigative report by Good Morning America, some Samsung top-load washing machines produced between March 2011 and April 2016 are at risk of coming apart violently. The company said consumers with affected models should use the lower-speed delicate cycle when washing those materials. Techradarestimates that the cost of replacing the Note 7 phones may be as high as $1 billion. But New Jersey-based law firm Lieff Cabraser has launched a class action lawsuit on behalf of plaintiffs who say their units did in fact explode.

If you are on you way home from returning your Samsung Galaxy Note that burst into flames, you may want to check your washing machine.

"It was the loudest sound".

"I just remember covering my head, and leaning towards my son and just screaming this scream that I didn't even know I could scream", she said. The lawyer representing the group, Jason Lichtman, is arguing that a faulty support rod is the reason for the breakdowns.

Users have reported Samsung top-load washers exploding as early as the day of installation, Lichtman said.

Specific models were not mentioned, but the commission is advising consumers to only use the delicate cycle when washing bedding, water-resistant and bulky items.

The company is also facing a lawsuit from United States customers who, according to a filing in a New Jersey court on Aug 12, said their machines "explode during normal use".
