Yes. I have model WF45H6300AW/A2. Front loader. The cheap material on the front is all corroding. It looks like metal, but apparently it's painted plastic, and not painted very well. I contacted them, sent photos, and got a reply today telling me that there are no known or reported issues with this washer model. And that most likely the machine can be corroded due to following reasons: 1. Extended exposure to moisture and/or adverse conditions. 2. Environmental factors such as geographic location, room temperature, humidity, usage and maintenance. Why do they sell these things in Florida, if they are going to corrode? Besides, the serviceman who came out told me he sees this with some of the Samsung products. And he could see that we take care of the machine. There is no humidity problem with the matching dryer's exterior, and it sits directly next to the washer. In addition, we had a Sears Elite in the same spot for fifteen years that died before it had any rust on it at all...at the ripe old age of fifteen. This Samsung has been in it's home for two and a half years, and it's a big mess. So they want me to pay to have someone come out and diagnose it. And the person who responded was obviously not even in this county, as evidenced by the grammatical errors in the response. Thinking it's time to contact the BBB, and perhaps some kind of mediator, to resolve this problem. The machine needs to be fixed, or replaced. Some of the corrosion is around the outside drum. At the rate it is going, it will be leaking before long. Perhaps THEN it will not be cosmetic? We have quite a few Samsung products in our home, but this may be the last one. I do not believe the company is not aware of this issue with it's washers.
