Thank you Part number 4 per the schematic. Can’t believe it’s rusting. 4 years old. Seems so young to die. Do you think I could take to a body shop and have it repainted. Would it hold up you think?

That panel in white is Whirlpool part # W10562145. It looks to be $80-$100. I don't see anyone with it in stock so you might have to order one from a supplier.

I'm sure that is an option. There shouldn't be anything particularly special about the paint used. You can also buy appliance enamel spray paints if you're handy.

That can happen, especially in humid climates. I have been told a coating of auto wax can help to prevent surface rust in such regions.

There's no reason it won't last years to come.
