LG washer rusting
« on: July 11, 2016, 02:52:16 PM »

have a 4 yr old LG force wave washer that's rusting around the bleacher fill tray. had missus stop fillin it with bleach but now I  noticed rust by hinge. I want to sand n paint to try n stop rust. any ideas on how the bleach dispenser can be removed. seems awfully new to be rusting up. also the top lid. thanx

Top load front load? Model?
Either way pull the drawer out there should be a small thumb area in the the drawer that you can press down to release the soap dispenser from the machine .

Wave force is a top load model. They changed the bleach cup to prevent spillage.
