have you tryed sanding where the rust is located and then repaint with a rust proof paint because on any type of machine rust can not be prevented from showing up from time to time lol

here is a tip as soon as your done washing leave your washer door open to dry and wipe the rims and side of your washer that may help in prventing rust from forming

You should wash with 60C or higher occasionally to ensure bacteria is killed, if it is rusting in the rubber.
Or do you mean actually behind the door-if thats the case, I would phone up your hotpoint guarantee.

Or it might just be the actual part thats defective, like stated in the post above mine maybe you should call your hotpoint warrenty. Service and set an apointment with a tech, and if you have a sanitize cycle on your. Washer i would run it full, cycle with no clothes and use clorine bleach to kill the germs as well.

or you always have the option if you have the model and serial number of your washer to order from hotpoint parts a brand new door and before installing the new door give the new washer door a good rust treatment lol
