Samsung recalls 3 million top-loading washing machines

Posted November 4, 2016

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

The recall covers 34 models sold since March 2011, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which announced the recall Friday.

Nine injuries have been reported due to the issue, including one incident in which a person suffered a broken jaw.

Anyone who owns one of the machines should use delicate or waterproof cycles for bedding or bulky items.

Consumers can get a free repair in their home or a rebate toward a new washing machine with free installation.
