Nearly 100 Samsung washing machines cause fire

Since the recall, Samsung top loader washing machine has caused 96 fires nationally. The fires could be caused by moisture connecting with the electrical connectors of the machine or by the connectors being burnt out.

Samsung are offering victims a free examination and repair on the machine, but experts have warned that the machine is still dangerous even when it has been fixed.

Firefighters in Australia are urging owners of a Samsung washing machine to contact the brand to check their model is safe.
