I am looking at buying this machine, but was concerned about all the comments about rusting after one to tow years. Is there a way to prevent this?

It seemed that most people who posted had the white version, is it less likely to rust with the silver, or does it not matter. LG if you could respond with anyway I could prevent this, thanks!

Some rust stains come from the water and not the machine. If rust is present in your pipes, it can travel in the water to the washing machine.

Some rust stains come from the water and not the machine. If rust is present in your pipes, it can travel in the water to the washing machine. However, should you notice any rust in the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.0 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer with Steam in Graphite Steel, Model # WT5680HVA, it may be easy to remove by running a wash cycle using the hottest setting available, and adding two cups of lemon juice to the water. Rust stains in the NeveRust™ Stainless Steel Drum should not be an issue but you will want to make sure that you do not leave coins in the pockets of your laundry that might scratch and damage it in any way and leaving the lid open after washing will help the machine to dry out which helps in preventing rust from forming...^IFV Read Less

You would not be able to open the lid to force a longer soak cycle on the ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG 5.0 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Top Load Washer with Steam in Graphite Steel, Model # WT5680HVA. The Soak option n provides a 30 minute pre-soak prior to the start of the selected cycle and at the end of the pre-soak time, the
selected cycle will begin with the same water used for the soak. This washer is equipped with a special feature that
is designed to make your washer as safe as possible.
If the washer is paused or shut off while there is still water in the tub, the water will drain automatically after several minutes of inactivity. Once you select your desired cycle and press the START/PAUSE button to begin the cycle, the lid will lock, and the washer will agitate briefly without water to measure the weight of the load. If the START/PAUSE button is not pressed within 5 minutes, the washer will shut off and all settings will be lost. Any water remaining in the tub will automatically drain five minutes after the washer has shut off. You can pause any cycle after it has started, bit if the washer is paused and the START/PAUSE button is not pressed within 5 minutes, the washer will shut off and all cycle settings will be lost and any water remaining will drain five minutes later. The washer can be turned on or restarted any time before the drain begins. However, once the water begins to drain, all functions will be suspended until the water has been completely drained and the washer shuts off...^IFV

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 495 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst piece of junk i ever owned DOES NOT CLEAN MY CLOTHES. LG tech support is useless and rude! Will never buy another lg product. STAY AWAY FROM LG! The picture below is what clean sheets look like after washing August 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A really great value and an excellent washing machine. HUGE capacity!! Puts my old front-loader to shame! Top rated value on Consumer Reports and I completely concur. Replaces a 10 your old front loader which cost easily twice as much. HUGE capacity, but still high efficiency and adjustable load size. Clothes seem cleaner, loads take less time and the washer is quieter (except during the fill cycle). Not you Grandma's old top loader and it has no agitator. Just make sure the clothes are evenly distributed for balance. Smoked glass top lets you peek inside. I would recommend it! August 23, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Loved it, at first. Very disappointed now. We have owned this washer and dryer set for 3 1/2 years. The washer is beautiful, has a nice big tub for clothes, and has always performed well. We purchased it because Consumer Reports listed it in the top 3 back when we bought it. BUT... My wife informed me that she was seeing rust around the bleach dispenser. Upon further inspection, we realized that there was quite a bit of rust on the inside of the top metal casing. Upon even further inspection, we realized that the washer was dripping into the tub, and looked like the water shut off valve was not fully functional. Fortunately, we had purchased the 5 year warranty through Home Depot. However, that was also a very big hassle. It took them over one month to get our washer back into working order. For the last several days I was calling daily and demanding that we get a new replacement unit. That didn't happen, but they somehow got the correct working parts to our repair man. But beware of the warranty - they are allowed to use "refurbished" parts. The new replacement part has a more scratched up stainless steel lip on the top glass door than our original. Also, the soap dispenser is much more worn than our original. It works, but I feel like my "new" machine is not anymore. Had to use a laundromat twice during that time (for a family of 5) and used $75 (of which warranty only claims to cover $50 - I have yet to file for this reimbursement, so I hope they will do the right thing, but not counting on it at this point). Felt like I only got attention from Home Depot warranty service when I started calling daily and pushing for replacement of our machine. Even so, I could never get anyone with the warranty service to "own" my situation. Never could get a last name or a direct phone number /extension for follow up. Requested a service manager call several times, but they would not read the notes and would call my home phone and leave a voice mail instead of calling my cell phone as I had requested, and then leave the generic Home Depot warranty number only. Bottom line, my previous washer lasted over 15 years and never had a bit of rust. Anyone I talk to in the family has never experienced this with any washer. But if you start reading the reviews here, you'll see that many are dealing with this. Don't let the beauty of this machine lure you in. I regret our purchase. Thankful the warranty finally has us back up and running, but still regret this purchase. April 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Washer The washer works exceptionally well, with easy to understand controls and is quite. Price was very competitive when compared to the competition. August 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Of machine Takes somewhat getting used to. Will review in 6 months August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So efficient! I love all the alternatives you have for washing normal clothes to baby's and to delicate and then you have the sanitary for towels beautiful as I always buy white towels my towels are WHITE like always this is my second washer. The same style July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best washer I've ever owned! This washer was recommended to me by a customer while I was shopping at Home Depot. She was absolutely correct. Best washer ever! June 8, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stop! Do not buy this washer! The EPA has made the manufacturer regular the amount of water. It may be a top loader but don't think you are going to get much water in the huge tub unless you are washing on the bedding cycle. Clothes do not get cleaned and the cycles last forever! I thought I was getting a quality product but I wasn't. I have had it repaired twice already. The detergent tray had to be replaced because it would not empty out. Water left in the tray that had to be dumped before using again. Also the switch to turn on the unit fails all the time. I have to let it set for at least 15 minutes between loads to get it to turn on again. Repair came out and said nothing was wrong but it continues. Now it is out of warranty. Great!!! April 2, 2016
