Maytag is recalling about 5,000 front-loading washing machines manufactured by Samsung Electronics in South Korea that pose a safety risk to owners.

If the front-load washer is operated at maximum load capacity, the spinner could malfunction and break apart, posing a safety risk to consumers, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The recall involves white Maytag front-load washers with model number MAH9700 and a serial number from 10188468GA through 11683946GJ. The model and serial numbers are located inside the door opening and below the rubber boot.

The units were sold at major department and appliance stores nationwide from April 2005 through May 2005 for about $1,300.

Consumers should use care not to exceed the listed capacity of their machines and should contact Maytag for a free in-home service call to replace the washer’s control board.

There have been no reported incidents or injuries caused by the malfunctioning machine.

Consumers can contact Maytag at (800) 462-9267 anytime, or visit the company’s Web site at www.maytag.com.
