This (top loading very expensive) machine was purchased 11-16-2010 and now has rust at the seam outside near where the dispenser cups for soap and bleach are located. I purchased a four year warranty and had a repairman come to look @ it.
He said it's the way we load the machine and when it gets off balance, the "bleach"leaks through to the outside seam causing rust....REALLY! I am getting a second opinion today from a different repair person and have pictures of other machines that have the same issues, but these consumers have gotten no satisfaction either. The four year warranty "does not cover rust".
Only mechanical and electrical components. BEWARE of purchasing MATAG!
