Samsung top load clothes washing machine model WA5471ABP/XAA - RUSTING

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Hi,

 

I have a Samsung top load washer model WA5471ABP/XAA. I also bought the companion dryer. My wife is very happy with them.

 

Around 8 months ago, I noticed rust around the water dispenser. I did not do anything until I decided to look into this situation on-line. Although the machine is not new, we have taken good care of it and it looks like new. 

 

I also noticed that my washer model is also one of the Samsung washer models included in the voluntary recall that started in 2017.  I am not sure if the recall has anything to do with the rust issue. I would appreciate if you can guide me on what do.

 

Regards

I can't believe it has taken me so long to research this issue! We love our washer, but can't stop the rusting!

This is what I found on YouTube, I found other areas of rust like where the hinge gap, around the round edges of top where the paint flaked off and next to soap dispenser. I used Rustoleum rust primer in addition to the appliance paint.  Let’s see how long it’ll last.  I’ll NEVER buy another Samsung washer, I may not buy their TVs or cell phones either!!! This YouTube video was helpful, good luck.  https://youtu.be/XOdaQNk__Sg

My washing machine was not repaired as I decided to go with careful wash cycles of nothing too bulky or stiff. However, my inside rim is rusting. The white paint has chipped off and rust is exposed. My washer is only a couple of years old.
