After recalling its Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, Samsung now has issued a voluntary recall of 2.8 million top-loading washers in the USA after the company received more than 700 reports that the machine lids detach under "excessive vibration" leading to potential injuries.
Until users make their decision, they are advised to only wash bulky items on the delicate or waterproof cycles. There have been nine reports of related injuries, including a broken jaw and injured shoulder. There has been no recall in Australia, as the affected machines appear to be USA models.
Samsung is offering a free in-home fix to reinforce (read: bomb-proof) the doors on the affected washers. This comes on the heels of the company's Galaxy Note 7 smartphones being recalled for also exploding.
The company is recalling an astounding 34 models of its top-loading washing machines because the top can fly off during use, potentially injuring people nearby.
Consumers should contact Samsung immediately to receive one of the following remedy options. The free in-home fix is not available for mid-control washer at this time.

Democrats expressed dismay that the Republican nominee and his backers were advancing the idea of widespread voter fraud. Mr Trump came under fire during the debate for suggesting that he might not accept the election's outcome.
Samsung received 733 reports of problems with the machines.
If you own a Samsung washing machine, then be afraid, be very afraid. Consumers who choose the in-home fix will receive a free one-year extension of the manufacturer's warranty, regardless of the age of their washer.
REBATE: If you choose the rebate, you can use it towards a new washer from Samsung or another brand.
"Samsung Electronics Australia is not aware of any confirmed cases of this issue involving top loader models sold or supplied in Australia", a Samsung spokesman said on Saturday.
A straight-up refund from the original place of purchase for those who bought a recalled washer in the last 30 days.
