Samsung recalling washing machines

Posted: Updated:

Samsung is recalling 3 million top-loading washing machines because the top can detach during use.

The recall involves 34 washing machine models sold since March of 2011. So far, 733 reports of excessive vibration on the machines or the top detaching. Nine injuries have been reported, including a broken jaw.

If you have a recalled machine, use the delicate cycle for bedding and water-resistant for bulky items.

You can get a free repair or a rebate toward a new washing machine with free installation.

Refunds are only being given to anyone who purchased a machine in the last 30 days.
