Samsung has received 733 reports of washing machines experiencing excessive vibration or the top detaching from the machine. There are nine related reports of injuries, including a broken jaw, injured shoulder and other impact or fall-related injuries.

The recall includes 34 models of these top-load washers. The following model numbers are included in the recall depending on the serial number, which can be found on two labels attached the back of the machine.
