    I came home Saturday and my husband was cleaning up the garage. The washing machine had literally exploded: the entire top blew off - held on only by the steel mesh water lines, and the back of the tub blew out. The machine moved away from the garage wall and the water lines keep it from moving out farther. It was a good thing I was out in my car, since it is parked in front of the washer. There were pieces all over the garage. Luckily, it is all covered by warranty and the mfr is going to refund our money - easier for them then replacing it. In fact, we went back to the store and the machine is on sale for $200 less than what we originally paid for it.

    Showed the sales people where we originally bought it and they were amazed. Our salesman wanted copies of the photos to put on Facebook. Plus my husband had to sent photos to the mfr as well as proof.

    I've never heard of this before. I'm shocked that it happened. Luckily nobody was standing by it when it happened.

    What caused it to do this? Do you know, that is very interesting. I have heard of dryers exploding but not a washer.

    If you find out exactly what made it explode, please let us know. I'd like to know if it could happen to me and how to avoid this! Scary!

    I dunno...but I think I'd be looking at a different model by a different maker!

    That's scary.

    This is the first for me. I've never heard of this happening. Thank goodness no one was seriously hurt.
