Samsung Australia are recalling several models of their popular top loading washing machines after it was discovered that under certain circumstances, there is a chance  moisture may penetrate the electrical connectors, which can cause a fire hazard.

The recall affects models manufactured in 2010, 2011, 2012 and some models in 2013.
