Some machines have been reported to shake violently and explode. At least nine washing machine owners have reported injuries, including one report of a broken jaw. Some consumers says Samsung is mishandling the recall. One consumer told "Today" national investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen that Samsung did not returns "numerous" calls. 

In a statement, Samsung said, "Since we announced this recall, we have leveraged multiple channels to directly contact more than 2 million consumers, and have already repaired hundreds of thousands of top load washing machines."
