Some 457-thousand LG top-loading washing machines are being recalled.
Company officials say an unbalanced load can cause the machines to shake excessively and the drum to come loose posing an injury risk to users and property damage.
LG has received more than 300 reports of cases like this with at least 187 involving minor property damage and one involving a minor injury.
The recall involves three LG models and three Kenmore Elite brand models manufactured between February 2010 and November 2011. For a free in-home repair kit for the machine, just contact LG or Sears.
