Samsung top loader washing machines
In some circumstances, there is a chance that moisture may penetrate the electrical connectors of the machines causing a spark and potentially a fire hazard.
Samsung Electronics Australia is voluntarily conducting this recall to ensure the safety and quality of its products for its consumers.
Recall launched - 30 Apr 2013.
What to do
Check the model name of your washing machine (see images). Visit the Samsung website, call us between 8am – 5pm or email us to find out if your machine is affected.
Samsung will arrange for an authorised service technician to provide a free in-home service for all affected models.
If your washer is affected, until the service is performed, Samsung recommends that as a precautionary measure, you only use your washing machine if you are present or nearby to monitor it. If you notice any smoke or smell coming out of the washing machine, turn off the machine at the power point.
