I have purchased the bosch front loading washing machine model /e-nr:wab 16160 in/03, serial no.[protected] on
05.07.2015, from big bazaar, mysore karnataka. Bosch service engineer installed and commissioned the machine. Untill july 2017, i have not noticed any discrepancy with the machine, but to my surprise while cleaning i found rust patches in the housing before completing 2 years of period. The left hand side bottom portion of housing is heavily rusted and is extended upto the front left hand corner. Also i found the rust portion paint started peeling off like paper and rust particles are falling down. It is great shock for me to see rusty and pitted housing. On analyzing the peeled portion the base preparation for the portion like primer coating, red oxide coating has not been carried out before applying final coat of white coat. Also i suspect rust is formed due to internal leakage.
Immediately (30th july 2017) i visited bosch dealer on kalidasa road, mysore and informed the defect. They directed to call on the service engineer, accordingly i have registered my complaint vide ticket no.[protected] dated 07.08.2017. Service engineer visited and unable to find any defect in the function of the machine and couldn't focus much on the rusted portion. I am a retired mechanical engineer with 35 years experience in automobile manufacturing and heavy earth moving manufacturing company. I access the cause of the rust is due to not preparing the surface of housing before final coat. Herewith i am forwarding the images of rusted portion of housing and peeled off rusted paint sheets for your reference.
Now i request you to kindly depute your marketing personnel to study the discrepancy and recommend for free replacement of the housing.
I hope bosch which is the no.1 leading manufacturer of washing machine will definitely look into the matter and take the action.
