Samsung Recalls Top-Load Washing Machines Due to Risk of Impact Injuries

Samsung Rear-Control WasherThe Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling 2.8 million defective Samsung top-load washing machines, following nine reports of “impact injuries” including a broken jaw, injured shoulder, and other impact or fall-related injuries.
The defect is caused by unbalanced drums, which can separate from the washer and generate enough internal force to cause parts of the washer to be launched out of the machine.  The recall includes 34 models. Consumers should contact Samsung for a repair kit, rebate, or full refund based on the purchase date. In the meantime, Samsung advises customers to use a lower spin speed.
