Recalled Washing Machine Starts House Fire

A Samsung washing machine has caused $5,000 worth of damage in a house fire this week.

The Perth house fire was caused by a faulty washing machine which has since been recalled by Samsung. This has prompted a warning from fire fighters and Consumer Protection.


This is the eighth fire in WA since June 2013 involving defective Samsung washing machines.

The models recalled were manufactured between 2010 and 2013 and include model numbers: SW75V9WIP; SW65V9WIP; SW70SPWIP; SW80SPWIP; WA85GWGIP and WA85FWWIP.

Acting Consumer Protection Commissioner Gary Newcombe was concerned there were still 8,510 affected washing machines in WA homes which have yet to be fixed by Samsung.

“We urge consumers who have Samsung washing machines in their home to check the model numbers at the back of their machine or on their receipt,” Mr Newcombe said.

Customers who think they may have affected models should contact Samsung on 1800 239 655 between 8am and 8pm AEST or email wm.samsung@samsung.com.
