Safety issue with some Samsung washing machines

Thanks Julie for sending in this info from Samsung


Dear Customer,

You may have heard that there's a safety issue with some of our Top Loader washing machines made between 2010 - 2013.

In some cases, this issue could cause smoke, or even fire, to come from the machine. All it takes to fix an affected machine is a quick, free service from one of our qualified technicians.

In 2013 we commenced a product safety recall for six models of Top Loader washing machines. However, there are thousands of affected machines that are yet to be serviced.

I'm writing to you because Samsung needs your help to ensure that other Australians - your family, your friends, your neighbours - remain safe and well.

Here's how you can help. Firstly check your own machine. Get your parents to check their machines. Get your mates to check their machines. Get your neighbours to check their machines. Get anyone you know who has a Samsung Top Loader to check their machines.

All they need to do is follow the instructions in the boxes on the right hand side of this page.

Thank you for your help. Australia we need your help Phil Newton Vice President of Consumer Electronics Samsung Electronics Australia
