CPSC Issues Warning About Samsung Exploding Washing Machines

South Korea-based manufacturing company Samsung Electronic Ltd., maker of the faulty Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, has another problem on its hands. Reportedly, some of its top-loading washing machines have been exploding, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission announced on Wednesday, September 8.

CPSC said the units to watch out for are the ones manufactured between March 2011 and April 2016. No models were specified, but people can check if their Samsung washing machine unit is included in the issued warning by checking a list of serial numbers posted on Samsung’s website. CPSC released the warning a month after plaintiffs sued Samsung, who said their washing machines exploded while in use. A plaintiff from McAllen said her washing machine “exploded with such ferocity that it penetrated the interior wall of her garage.”
