Well, this is one of those:
So here’s the deal – Samsung is recalling some 2.8 million washing machines because 730 have exploded.
Me: is exploded the right word? Don’t you have to have some kind of charge, like gunpowder, for something to explode?
According to the article, the washer lids have flown off and become airborne.
Me: like a flying saucer? Good grief, could you just imagine folding clothes out of the dryer and all of a sudden the washing machine lid comes at you? It’s definitely happening at the spin cycle. Maybe it just accelerated too much. My washer sounds – and looks – like a jet engine when it spins. (PS – it’s not a Samsung.)
Samsung “apologizes for any inconvenience…”
Me: inconvenience, honey chile? Holy Batman! If a washer attacked me I’d avoid laundry for the rest of my days. Of course, I’d like to do that anyway.
According to the above referenced article:
“The company will offer a free, in-home repair to reinforce the affected washer’s top, a rebate to be applied towards the purchase of a new washing machine –of any brand -– or a full refund for those who bought the machine within the past 30 days.”
Me: I can definitely tell you that I wouldn’t opt for the reinforced top.
How about you? Has your washing machine ever attacked you?
