My top load washer is having a rust issue around the bleach and soap dispenser. I see this is a common problem in the US forums. I've checked to see if this model is on the recall list. It is not. The washer is 4 years old and has been having this problem since it's been a year old. Support says it's off warranty and won't help. I am posting this as a buyer beware and perhaps a moderator might be able to help where support cannot. It's very frustrating spend so much money on a product that should last 10 years plus.

 

Model: WA45H7000AW/A2

Hey @ditz5931,
Sorry to know about this. Unfortunately, this type of damage is considered as a maintenance issue and would not be covered under the Samsung warranty and you would be charged for the repair. However, Samsung provides 12 months warranty from the date of purchase of the unit.

The washer is 4 years old and has been having this problem since it's been a year old. 

 

So, why do you wait so long to complain about this ? Anyway this is abnormal, a washer is not supposed to rust.. if you are in Québec, we have a consumer protection law for that kind of problem and even if the manufacturor say 1 year of Warranty, in Court, this is'nt true , check about it 

 

For household appliances, the reasonable lifespan is even longer: 11 years for a washer, 12 for a dryer and 13 for a refrigerator. The legal warranty applies when that of the manufacturer is over, even if the consumer has not purchased an extended warranty.

 

You can see many exemple here :

Don't accept less than that.
