The top can detach when consumers use a high-speed cycle with bedding, water-resistant or bulky items, Samsung said in the consumer alert.
Owners of the washers have a few options under the recall.
First, they can get a free in-home repair kit to reinforce the top of the washer. That option will also include a one-year extension of the manufacturer's warranty.
Second choice is a rebate that can be used to buy a new washer and have the new unit installed and the old one removed. The amount is based on the date and model of the old washer. If owners choose a new Samsung washer, they will also get an additional $150 loyalty incentive.
If consumers recently bought one of the recalled appliances, within the past 30 days, they can get a full refund from the place of purchase.
