    Hotpoint washer shell 9th Aug 18 at 2:50 PM
    At the bottom of my two year old hotpoint washer I have what I think is called a stability bar bolted across the case. The case of the machine has cracked around the bolts causing the drum to wobble . Hotpoint say itís corrosion and I must pay call and and repair . Is this fair ?can any one give me an opinion ?
    I am trying to post a picture but it is really confusing as I am not allowed to post a link

    Is it corroded? Where is the machine installed? Have you adhered exactly to the installation instructions which will probably specify minimum clearances all around the machine, where it can/cannot be installed, etc.
    Please forgive the deliberate omission of apostrophes on some posts whilst I await MSE to do something about the daft codes that appear in their place when typing on certain devices.

    They do get corroded around the base often due to water spillage etc.

    Fair yes if its user damage .
    Have Hotpoint looked at it ??

    Any claim uder Hotpoint warranty is subject to their terms .
    Consumer Rights claim against the vendor >> They will probably ask for you to prove your claim of not damage via an independent engineers report .
