Between this and the cell phone, it has not been a good year for Samsung. Luckily, I don't have either of the products.

I just bought a new washer after my 20 year old unit bit it this weekend. I noticed that the top load Samsung's on the floor in Home Depot in Lowes had some note about not being available at this time. I asked why and the guy at Home Depot and he said during the spin cycle, the unit was vibrating so much that the lid became detached and flew off in some cases. :-o

I think these were pretty popular especially at big chain stores. They only have about 15 washers on the floor and of that Samsung had at least 3 at Home Depot, Lowes and Best Buy.

Well the notice sure does not say anything about the dang lid flying off!!! :errrr:

Mine qualifies after checking the #s. How the heck can you wash sheets on delicate? I want hot hot hot water and that is what the bedding setting is for!

The announcement was awfully vague wasn't it? Usually recall notices or pre-recall caution notices tell you exactly what could happen, right?

You're welcome Redwood, I nearly bought one last month when mine bit because my daughter has one and is happy with it ended up with a Maytag instead cause I could'n't resist a great deal lol.

Sorry here is a link to the government of Canada site:

http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2016/60482r-eng.php

They do mention this:

Hazard identified

Washing bedding, bulky or water-resistant items at certain settings may cause the machine to experience abnormal vibrations and the washing machine top may suddenly detach during the spin cycle, posing a risk of injury to consumers and property damage.

Health Canada has not received any consumer reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these products in Canada.

Samsung Electronics Canada Inc. has received 64 reports of the tops detaching in Canada with 11 reports of minor property damage, and no reports of injuries.

Thanks again. I have had mine for at least 3 years and use the bulky and bedding setting all the time. The lid is still on. :lol:
