Decided to open up the front panel of my 2009 Huebsh just out of curiosity. Had some trouble with one of the screw and had to use the wrench instead of flat screwdriver.

There was rust. Nothing major but after 9 years of service, perfectly normal for any machine this age per technician. Bolt-screws, front panel, suspension springs and floor were affected.

As I watched my washer operate with the front panel off I realized that the whirlwind caused by the the spin during the spray rince causes droplets of water to enter the housing. Consistent with the location of the rust.

Surgery: Rust to be scrubbed out. Floor and front panel to be painted. Bolt-screws just needed be cleaned. No need to have them replace. Same for suspension springs. Rust inhibit to be added to some parts. Minor leak detected from the internal part of drain hose and will be replaced.

So this is just to remind you; manual suggest a check-up with a service technician every 5 years. Just do it. It is a quality machine and an investment. You wouldn't go this long with your car would you? Not cheap... It is gonna cost me between $300 and $400 but I consider it well worth it and have full confidence with technician business I am dealing with.

Please take some time during this summer vacation period to give your quality washer the care it deserves.

Take care you all and have a great summer! This community is the reason why I found this washer in the first place.
