After Samsung Galaxy Note 7 marred the company’s reputation by exploding at various locations across the globe, the company has a new problem to deal with.
This time, it is the washing machines that have taken the limelight and are going on an explosion spree.
According to a report by the ABC News, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a warning against the top-loading Samsung washing machines after there were reports that some of the washing machines exploded.
The agency said that it was working with Samsung to fix the issue.
The warning comes months after customers, whose machines had exploded during use, filed a lawsuit against the company.
Meanwhile, Samsung has issued a release asking its customers to use the affected models at ‘lower speed delicate cycles’ to avoid any such incident.
“We are in active discussions with the CPSC to address potential safety issues related to certain top-load washing machines manufactured between March 2011 and April 2016.”
“Samsung is recommending that consumers with affected models use the lower speed delicate cycle when washing bedding, bulky or water-resistant materials. There have been no reported incidents when using this cycle,” Samsung wrote in its release.
