The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission said that Samsung had received seven hundred and thirty three reports of washing machines experiencing excessive vibration or the top detaching from the washing machine chassis. Nine of those reports include injures to people. One person had their jaw broken. Another had their shoulder broken. Samsung says the recall is voluntary. Let's talk about the washing machines affected. The recall applies to certain top loading washing machines manufactured between March 2011 and now. So if you have a front loading washing machine, it's recalled Recall does not apply to you. 34 different models of top loaders are involved in this recall. A full list can be found at cpsc.gov.

Those numbers can be found on your washing machine in two locations, on the back of the control panel or on the back right of the washer. Then you can check at samsung.com/us/tlw.
