Samsung (like everyone else) is having a rough 2016. The tech company had to replace 2.5 million of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones after reports of batteries exploding, and now it looks like the same thing is happening with its top-load washing machines.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a warning on Samsung washing machines made between March 2011 and April 2016 after customers filed a federal class-action lawsuit. One woman claimed her machine “exploded with such ferocity that it penetrated the interior wall of her garage,” according to court documents. Another said it felt and sounded like “a bomb went off” when she was washing her clothing.

The CPSC suggested using only use the delicate cycle to wash bedding and other bulky items so as to “lessens the risk of impact injuries or property damage due to the washing machine becoming dislodged.”

Samsung hasn’t said much on the issue, but they did release this statement saying they are working to fix the problem.
