Samsung HQ must be freaking the f#@% out this year. 

First there was the massive disaster thatwas the Samsung Note 7, which resulted in a mass recall of the dangerous faulty phone and it ceasing all production on the model. 

Now, there's news of another of their popular household products exploding... resulting in yet another recall.

But this time it's not your trusty BFF phone, it's the thing we all turn to each and every day... our washing machines.

Yes, Samsung washing machines are now going off without warning and have caused nine injuries thus far, with over 730 exploding washing machines being reported already. 

Samsung have called for a mass recall of over 3 million machines and the chairman of the U.S. Product Safety Commision, Elliot Kaye, has since made a statement about the incidents.

"We're talking about... a very serious hazard of the top of these washing machines completely blowing off. It is a lot of reports."

According to Elliot, the top of the machine units were not "secured enough based on a design failure... In rare cases, affected units may experience abnormal vibrations that could pose a risk of personal injury or property damage when washing bedding, bulky or water-resistant items."

If you own any of THESE Samsung washing machines, then the recall applies to you. 

There will be three routes you can take should you own one of the faulty machines:

1. Samsung will reportedly provide a free in-home repair of your washing machine. 

2. You may receive a rebate towards buying a new washing machine, whether it be Samsung or not. 

3. A full refund may be available if you have purchased your Samsung machine in the last 30-days. 

Let's hope Samsung have more look next year...
