Samsung doesn't seem to be having a great year. The Galaxy Note 7 smartphone was a nightmare for the company after its release in August. Over 2.5 million of the phones were recalled after a flaw caused the battery to overheat and catch fire.

Eventually, Samsung had to kill production of the Note 7 altogether. Now, another explosive problem is causing Samsung to recall millions of more products.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) says that nearly 2.8 million Samsung top-load washing machines are being voluntarily recalled in the U.S. over safety concerns. Samsung has received 733 reports of these machines experiencing excessive vibration, which could lead to the top detaching during use.

There have been nine reported injuries related to these complaints. Injuries include a broken jaw, an injured shoulder, along with other fall-related injuries.

Recalled Models

There are 34 models of Samsung top-load washing machines being recalled. These machines have mid-controls or rear controls and were manufactured between March 2011 and November 2016. Model and serial numbers can be located on two labels affixed to the back of the machine.
