Potential Class Action Suit Over Samsung’s Response To Recalled Washers

 Tuesday, January 17, 2017


Last November, after several owners of Samsung washing machines complained about violent, almost explosive, vibrations, Samsung recalled nearly 3 million machines, promising to fix the devices or provide folks with refunds. Now, three months later, the company is on the receiving end of a potential class action after one customer says Samsung’s multiple attempts to fix his machine have failed. In the lawsuit [PDF], filed in federal court in Oklahoma, the owner of a Samsung washing machine claims the company purposefully failed to fix his machine in order to induce him to buy another product from the company.
