Wont last more then 5 years before rusting out

After 4 years of use has started to rust and leak. The leak occurs after every wash and after cleaning boot seal, filter. I thought it would be worth the money spent.
Just after this initial review the whole machine gave up 5 months out of warranty. It was cheaper to buy a new machine so purchased a Bosch at half the price and couldn’t be happier. Show details

Rate whirlpool when receive outcome to issue

This machine washes really well! But there is mould growth in the seal even though I leave the door open after I wash .

And 5 years on I have noticed it is starting to rust (first sign is the bubbling of the white coating which then starts to flake off!
A machine built to be exposed to water and detergents should be rustproof.
No reason why a machine would rust under the dials also ????
Let’s hope whirlpool step up with this one as I am reading this is happening to someone else ..
Regardless of warranty consumer affairs state there is a legality to a product is expected to last for a reasonable time .
I will get back on here once I see what whirlpool do with my request to compensate.!

  Verified FSCR10420

Good silent machine

This product has many options for different fabrics, colours, etc. The two features I like most are time delay (since I have a smart meter, I do the washing at off-peak hours) and the fast 30 wash cycle, that does the washing of relatively clean clothes in 30 mins!.

It's also incredibly quiet :)

Iain · 6th Sense Zen Direct Drive Front Load FSCR10420 (8.5 kg)

Our FSCR10420 is a little over 3 years old and has started to leak water out of the soap dispenser down the outside of the door. The leak is starting to rust some of the other parts of the machine. How can we get this fixed?

Contact whirlpool directly & they will advise you of a repairer to look at it. At a cost of course

I have one of these washing machines and am very happy with it.
Somehow we have 'lost' the 'hook' on the end of the outlet hose - is it possible to buy just this item? Any ideas where I would be able to get this. I live in South Australia.
