Federman & Sherwood Announces Transfer of Samsung Top-Load Washing Machine Multi-District Litigation to Oklahoma

Federman & Sherwood is pleased to announce that they successfully argued that the Samsung Top-Loading Washing Machine cases filed throughout the United States should be transferred by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation to the federal district court in Oklahoma City (Western District of Oklahoma). The litigation concerns at least 26 lawsuits filed in different federal courts. The common allegations arise from claims that over 30 models of Samsung top-load washing machines have design and manufacturing defects that may cause machine parts to detach, break apart, or explode during the spin cycle. Samsung issued a recall in November 2016 which plaintiffs claim is not adequate to repair the machines nor fairly compensates plaintiffs.

For more information about this matter, how to participate in the action or the pending litigation against Samsung contact: Jared A. King, Federman & Sherwood, (405) 235-1560 or by email to jak@federmanlaw.com

I purchased a Samsung Top Load washer that was recalled. I then got them to pick it up and I purchased another one. The second one, the one I own now is NOW under recall. I want in on the law suit please. This is ridiculous.

I purchased a washer that was recalled. I had the top reinforced due to the other options not being viable. What surprised me is that Direct TV (huh!)came by to repair the washer. Within a few months, the gears in the washer began to grind (I think it was due to the "repair"). That was fixed, now it is doing it again.

What bothers me is that last year when their wireless phones all started having meltdowns, they were recalled and replaced. A quote from their website -->. Consumers who have a Galaxy Note7 device can exchange their phone for another Samsung smartphone, or receive a refund <<-- Why is my washer not handled the same way?

I am having the same issue with my washer. Now the repair company says they are going to charge even thought there's a recall. They will only fix it if it's leaking, they said if it stops spinning or is not working right it's not related to the recall. Now I am only offered $350-450 to buy a new one when mine was $1200.
