    Can Samsung catch a break?! First the Note 7 was recalled and then later discontinued when it started exploding. Now Samsung is recalling 2.8 million washing machines which have also started to "explode". These washing machines have a defect which cause excessive vibrations. The machines have actually been separating during use. This has caused more than one serious injury including a broken jaw, broken shoulder, and other fall related injuries. Samsung washers sold between 2011 and 2016 are effected. If your washing machine has been recalled Samsung will send someone to fix it for free, or give you a full refund if you purchased within the last 30 days. Alternatively they will give you a rebate which can be used to purchase another machine. Head to the link below to check if your washing machine model matches recalled models.

    My front loading machine certainly spins fast, they probably need to work on the construction on it...

    Mine spins ludicrously fast, almost don't need to dry stuff afterward but it also is uber sensitive to being out of balance before the final spin. It's very frustrating to check my stuff after it dings and find that it didn't balance out right, thus never cranked up to hamster wheel speed for 12 minutes , forcing the almost all water out.
    It's older and not a Samsung.

    As do I. It has one dead pixel in the top corner. Would totally use a recall to get it replaced just because of that one dead pixel.
