    Accepting the incidents, Samsung has released an official statement which reads, 'In rare cases, affected units may experience abnormal vibrations that could pose a risk of personal injury or property damage when washing bedding, bulky or water-resistant items.'

    At the same time, the statement says, 'It is important to note that Samsung customers have completed hundreds of millions of loads without incident since 2011.'

    The company is also offering a service whereby consumers can check to see if their own machines are potentially defective by entering a serial number. Check the link here.
