Samsung In Probe Over ‘Exploding Washing Machines’


Samsung has confirmed it is in talks with US consumer watchdogs after a lawsuit against the firm over “exploding” washing machines.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)warned of problems with some of Samsung’s top-load machines.

It comes as a US law firm filed a suit against the South Korean firm, saying the fault can lead to injury or damage.

The problems follow Samsung’s global recall of its Note 7 smart phone over “exploding” batteries.

Both Samsung and the CPSC said that certain top-loading washing machines from March 2011 to April 2016 were affected.

“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,”

Samsung said.
