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

Early model LG washers had a higher tendency for corroding door hinges
 
Later models are using re-designed hinges that are more corrosion resistant.

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.
