Where do I find the model name / serial number?
What should I do?
Check the model name of your washing machine. Call 0800 855 502
or 0800 162 888 24/7, or email email@example.com with your name, home address, phone number, serial number, and model to find out if your machine is affected.
Samsung will arrange for an authorised service technician to provide a free in-home service for all affected models. Alternatively, we can offer you an exchange unit (subject to availability) or a refund.
If your model is an affected model, until the service is performed, Samsung recommends that as a precautionary measure, you only use your washing machine if you are present or nearby to monitor it.
In some circumstances, there is a chance that moisture may penetrate the electrical connectors of the machines causing a spark and potentially a fire hazard.
