Lg Washer - Corroded Door Hinge - No Model num

5 posts in this topic

Sorry for lack of model number, but Im sure you guys know what im talking about.

 

It seems like soap/water spills from the soap drawer and leaks on the hinge causing it to corrode and not let the door shut properly.

 

What causes this??

 

Thanks

So no real reason that they corrode, other than being in a damp environment??

It was the type of metal used in the older hinges that made them susceptible to rusting.  The new alloy material is mo' bettah.
