Don't buy LG stuff

Our LG washing machine rusted at the top, and before ordering a new one, I called LG to see if they knew about the rusting problem generally and if there was a fix.

The service tech could not have been less helpful.

After reading off a script to tell me that rust was due to flooding (I think I would have noticed 6 feet of flooding in the basement) he declined to transfer me to another level technician or take a report to be passed along to an expert at the company.

I'm not buying anything from them again, and I encourage all readers to join the boycott against crappy service.

I have an LG front loader. Problem-free for 8 years. Sounds like you just got a lemon.

Total Noob, don't trust this guy. Just look at his age in the top left of his post, and yet he's been a member of CTH since 1953.

LG = Lucky GoldStar.

Their main head quarter's is located in Seoul South Korea.
They supply parts to a lot of different manufacturers.
So, even if your buying say, a GE, or Whirlpool appliance.
It will most likely have parts that were made for it from LG.

Welcome to the global economy.

Well, if you want to get into that age thing, I used Gold Star products before they built their first tractor with Hyundai. Of course, that means I was in the ROK at that time, because I don't think there was much exporting of electronic goods from the ROK in the early 70s. We used to have records then that you could bend like the early floppy disc. In fact, after one of those copyright violating records couldn't be used anymore we'd bend the edges up and make giant ashtrays out of them.

But that point made about Gold Star parts being in any other company products is quite valid.

But that rusting trouble does seem a fair bit odd for a product that uses water like a washing machine does. You don't live near a body of salt water, do you? That sure does seem strange. A rusted out washing machine sounds almost like a collector's item. That could be an embarrassment to the company. You should ask them what they think you could get for that as a collector's item at some museum. They might wake up to the problem then.
