U.S. regulators warn that some Samsung washing machines could explode

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- U.S. regulators have issued a warning about top-loading Samsung washing machines.

They say some of the washers made between March 2011 and April 2016 have exploded.

One woman says hers exploded with such force that it broke through her wall.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission suggests only using the delicate cycle when washing bulky items to decrease the risk of injury or damage.

Samsung officials say they're working with U.S. officials on a fix.
