LG (and Kenmore) Recalls TOP Load Washers Due to Injury
Hazard: An unbalanced load can cause the washing machine to shake excessively and the drum to come loose during use,
posing a risk of injury to consumers and property damage to the surrounding area.
Remedy: Consumers should immediately contact LG or Sears for a free in-home repair of the machine.
Consumers will also receive supplemental information to be inserted into their owner's manual and a new caution label to be placed on the washing machine.
Consumers who have observed their recalled washing machine shaking excessively should immediately stop using it.
Consumers should be aware that loading their machines with water-proof or water-resistant items,
such as mattress pads, mattress covers and similar items, increases the chances of loads being unbalanced.
