Safety concerns are still being raised over Samsung washing machines.

Another six models by the Korean manufacturer have similar faults to the already recalled top loader (first recalled in 2013).

About 144,000 machines have been sent back under the initial recall, after a number of house fires were linked to the model.

However, it’s been revealed Samsung has been refunding, replacing or repairing an additional six models that also pose a fire risk.

You an check the Samsung website for more information.

  • If you bought a Samsung washing mchine in tha last 5 years or so I suggest you contact the store you bought it from and give them the details of yours.. They will be able to tell you whether or not there is a re-call on it at all, more especially the fact that the ones listed above aren’t readable.

  • Its so concerning. I do hope the companies that see these and have purchaser details on file (such as good guys and Harvey norman) call their clients to assist in the recall. Some people may have one and not know about the recall. A simple phone call from where they purchased it could save their house and possibly their life

  • We were going to buy a Samsung as we needed to replace our current Samsung, thankfully the sales guy advised us against it due to all the machines being recalled or catching fire.
