US Sue's Samsung Over 'exploding' Washing Machines And Phones


Samsung has said it is investigating reports that some of
its washing machines have exploded in the US.
The electronics giant, which has already recalled millions
of Galaxy Note 7 smartphones following a spate of battery
explosions, said it is aware of "potential safety issues"
concerning the appliances.

A class-action lawsuit filed in New Jersey is alleging some
Samsung top-loading washing machines have exploded in
their owners' homes.
Some of the explosions allegedly caused damage to walls
and doors and presented "significant injury risks".
One of the plaintiffs in the case, Melissa Thaxton, said: "It
was the loudest sound. It sounded like a bomb went off in
my ear. There were wires, nuts, the cover actually was
laying on the floor.
"I just remember covering my head and leaning towards
my son and just screaming this scream that I didn't even
know I could scream."
In a statement, the firm behind the legal action added:
"Users have reported Samsung top-load washers
exploding as early as the day of installation, while other
owners have seen their machines explode months or even
more than a year after purchase."
The firm said it has received reports of glass and other
machine parts being shot across garages and laundry
rooms at distances of more than 15ft - with owners only
avoiding injury through "fortunate timing".
Samsung says it is in "active discussions" with the US
Consumer Product Safety Commission about the affected
appliances, which were manufactured between March
2011 and April of this year.
The company added: "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."
Until a more permanent solution can be found, customers
are being urged to use the "lower speed delicate cycle"
when washing bulky items such as bedding.
