Samsung eyes fix after complaints of 'exploding' washers

Source: AFP

Samsung is in discussions about "potential safety issues" concerning some of its washing machines after a class-action lawsuit complained the appliances were exploding, the company said Wednesday.

The news comes after the South Korean electronics giant recalled millions of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones following a series of battery explosions.

Samsung is "in active discussions" with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission on issues with top-load washing machines manufactured between March 2011 and April 2016, a company statement said.

"In rare cases, affected units may experience abnormal vibrations that could pose a risk of personal injury or property damage when washing bedding, bulky or water-resistant items," it said.

Does Samsung make any consumer products that don't explode or catch fire?

6. Their washers, dryers, phones, tablets, and TVs have caught fire in the last few years.

Samsung is famous for rushing their products to market without proper testing.

7. Just what I need to hear

 

We replaced our centuries-old Maytag dryer with a Samsung dryer about six months ago.

Should I haul it to the junk yard before it catches fire?

I plays a really pleasant tune when it starts and when it's finished.
