Lg washing machine model W15101HV, had a recall for unbalanced load can cause washing machine to shake excessively and drum come loose during use.

On 03/27/2016 this happened to my unit and it actually knocked the whole top off and turned the unit around and broke apart.

We had received recall notice from LG and my wife had called when we received it and they told us it does not affect our model. But now on it shows that our model was affected.

When calling Lg they do not want to do anything. We already bought a new machine and old one was taken away before I found this out, but have pictures and 5 employees of Lg authorized sales location saw unit and what happened as well.

Also had issues with unit rusting and when called Lg I was told to just spray vinegar on it, then called back to be told to use baking soda paste. This did not resolve this issue.
