Samsung is going through some terrible times lately. The Galaxy Note 7 exploding battery fiasco got way out of hand, and the company has since been scrambling to get the situation under control. Now however there’s a report about another Samsung device exploding, and no it is not a smartphone. A certain top-loading washing machine by Samsung has reportedly exploded in the US. Consequently, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a warning to owners against the particular model of the washing machine. The warning by the US regulator covers machines made between March 2011 and April 2016, however, it did not specify the model of the washing machine.

According to CNN , the warning was issued after the department pursued incidents filed by consumers in three US states, including claims by a Texas woman that her washer “exploded with such ferocity that it penetrated the interior wall of her garage.” The woman compared the explosion to the sound of a bomb blast. The issue is believed to have been caused by “abnormal vibrations.” In response to the complaints, Samsung also released a
statement regarding the washing machine issue, where it is asking the consumers to limit to washing clothes in lower speed delicate cycle, as it says no complaints have been reported while washing in that particular mode. Attempting to have its customers maintain faith in the company, Samsung also reminds users that these machines have been accident free since 2011.

“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. Samsung is recommending that consumers with affected models use the lower speed delicate cycle when washing bedding, bulky or water-resistant materials,” a Samsung statement reads. “There have been no reported incidents when using this cycle. It is important to note that Samsung customers have completed hundreds of millions of loads without incident since 2011.”

Samsung is also providing consumers a
service where they can find out if the machine they are using is the faulty one. Customers can just enter their washing machine’s serial number to find out if theirs is affected.

Samsung’s woes have been somewhat endless these days. It all started with the Galaxy Note 7 explosions, when the company stopped the smartphone’s sales and began a recall in order to replace all 2.5 million of Galaxy Note 7 that it had sold. While everyone hoped that would get the issue under control, a Galaxy Note 7 replacement unit marked ‘safe’ reportedly exploded in China. On top of that, a Galaxy Note 2 was recently reported to have exploded in an IndiGo aircraft, when the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had to summon Samsung for an immediate meeting to discuss the Galaxy Note’s battery issues. DGCA is reportedly banning all Galaxy Note smartphones from being used or charged in flights
