    Default Samsung top loader washing machine recall

    Hello,

    Not sure where to post this and in my opinion this should be posted in every forum section, as this is serious and like myself many still were and Are Unaware about this serious issue with certain washing machines catching fire and the cause of was around 144 fires

    There has been at least one washing machine incident each week on average nationally, such as overheating, smoking and fires, since the first recall.

    Samsung washing machines linked to fires

    Six top loading models were recalled in 2013 after being linked to a series of house fires, but only a fraction of affected customers have come forward for service.


    I bring this up because I was browsing another forum when I saw the link.

    I think my machine machine is one of the affected but cannot know for sure until tomorrow.

    And there is still thousands not returned or known where they are so I presume thousands of people like myself somehow were and are still unaware about this.

    These were recalled back in 2013 yet it's 2016 and still many do not know

    For your reference the models being recalled are :
    SW75V9WIP/XSA
    SW65V9WIP/XSA
    SW70SPWIP/XSA
    SW80SPWIP/XSA
    WA85GWGIP/XSA
    WA85GWWIP/XSA

    Please if you bought one a few years ago or know someone did please mention this if they are unawares.

    About 45,000 recalled Samsung washing machines are yet to be located.

    Adding to that, you're entitled to a full refund or replacement, even if your machine has been *repaired.
    *The repair has been deemed unsuitable, and there have been incidences of fires or other issues with the repaired recall machines.

    Mine is an affected machine.
    I bought mine from the GoodGuys end of yr 2012

    Called TheGoodGuys where I bought it from they said they can swap it for another, I do not want another Samsung, so I have to pay the difference of around $115 for something else I have chosen.

    Will pay the difference tomorrow morning and they said they will get the one I chose delivered to me same day! No fee for delivery.

    I went for a front loader, never had one, so going for that But Not samsung brand
