Examine your washer: Due to a fire hazard, Samsung is recalling nearly 640,000 top-loading washing machines.

Samsung is recalling nearly 664,000 top-loading washing machines due to the risk of fire from short circuiting and overheating.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the recall, which was announced on Thursday, affects 14 models of washers equipped with super speed wash.

Models included in the recall are the WA49B, WA50B, WA51A, WA52A, WA54A, and WA55A.

The appliances were sold at Costco, Best Buy, Home Depot, and Lowe’s between June 2021 and December 2022.

The company said it has received 51 reports of the washers “smoking, melting, overheating, or fire,” but a software update can fix it.

The CPSC advised owners to “immediately stop” using the machines until they were updated. The safety regulator is urging owners of recalled washers to check to see if their machine has received the software update Samsung issued to resolve the issue.

The model and serial numbers of consumer washing machines can be found on the label inside the top lid or on the label on the back.
