I have the same issue. The rust is getting really bad around the bleach dispenser on my Wave Force True Balance topload washing machine.
I called LG and they gave me a run around numerous times and told me it wasn’t covered under warranty. Horrible customer service, horrible company and horrible appliance for the money. I purchased mine from Sears and will never buy LG or buy an appliance again from Sears. This should have been recalled and replaced for no charge by LG.
I even asked them to just ship me the part and I’ll repair it myself.
They refused and said it’s not their problem. Seriously a defect that should be replaced at no charge.
