No spin zone: Samsung recalls 3M EXPLODING washing machines

As I understand it, the problem is that the spin-balance/g-sensor subsystem doesn't always work properly and an erroneous reading is not detected.

So the machine thinks everything is fine and keeps spinning until it rapidly dismantles itself, instead of slowing or shutting down the way it is designed to do.
