Samsung troubles seems to be far from over. Just months after Samsung Galaxy Note 7 were recalled due to battery explosions, now certain Samsung top load washing machines chassis are falling apart due to excessive vibration, posing risk of injury from impact.
The Safety commission reported that Samsung has recalled 2.8 million of its top load washing machines from all over the United States. There were total nine reports of injuries, including broken jaw and injured shoulder.
The safety commission also suggested consumers to use their existing Samsung washing machine at lower spin speed, that will decrease the risk of injuries or property damage due to the washing machine becoming dislodged.
Samsung are now providing option to the consumers. Consumers can either choose an in-home repair, in which top of the washing machine will be reinforced. The second option for consumers is to receive partial refund which can be applied to purchase another washing machine.
Samsung said they are providing full refund to the consumers who purchased a washing machine in the last 30 days.
“Our priority is to reduce any safety risks in the home and to provide our customers with easy and simple choices in response to the recall,” John Herrington, a general manager of home appliances for Samsung Electronics America, said in a statement.
