i have always had hot point applyances and as i had my kitchen re done last year i wanted all new applances, i bought washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, fridge.
after about 8 months i noticed rust on the front of my machine, when i looked closer it was in fact rust in the rim where the door closes i think it is the design of the door front, i didnt take out extra cover as i had my last machine for 10years and never had any problems, when i phoned hotpoint customer services, they were not intersted at all and said they have never heard of this complaint happening to any one else, and there was nothing they could do.
i have now found that my dishwasher and fridge have the same problem, rust in side the dishwasher, and on the door of my fridge,
so it must be a problem with the finishing i have the grafite grey finish.
there not 2 years old yet and im very dissepointed with hotpoint and will not be buying that make again.
