If it's less than 5 years old, the warranty covers replacement of the top and lid due to rust. Check here:

SOURCE: rust around my bleach despenser and under the side of top where the despenser is help

Bleach tends to eat thru the paint and cause the rust. What I do on a call for this is to take the bleach cup out, sand the area and paint the area with appliance paint. Here is a link to the paint I use in case you want to do it. The only way to keep this from occurring again is try not to let the bleach get on the painted areas. I know this is hard to do on a washer but you can try to poor some water around the area of the bleach cup. If you should get the paint else where, be sure it is enamel appliance paint.

What do I do to stop the rusting?


Stop using bleach in the dispenser. Just put it in the tub after your wash machine has filled with water. The problem is, bleach eats away at the enamel and metal and if you don't have it sufficiently diluted with water, then it eats away at everything---really fast!

I have deep rust appearing around the bleach port. machine is only one year old. WHY is it rusting ?????


Samsung does not recommend the use of chlorine bleach in this machine. The bleach port is intended for color-safe bleach only. Chlorine bleach is an oxidizer that will accelerate the corrosion process of the drum, which is what you are probably seeing. The users guide for your machine states specifically that you SHOULD NOT put liquid chlorine bleach into the bleach port.

How to clean


Hello Lisa Rucker - I suggest to first rub some bleach around the door gasket. Let this dry. Next rub some vinegar around the door gasket. Let this dry. (Do NOT mix the bleach and vinegar) Then run a hot empty load of bleach in all three dispensers. Put 1/2 cup of bleach in the detergent dispenser and fill the softener and bleach dispenser to the max fill line with bleach. Once that is done repeat the process with vinegar. Please make sure you run a load of towels or some sort of items that will not matter if you get a little bleach on them once this process is done.

Water in the bleach dispenser


The bleach dispenser is a syphon system. When you put in the bleach , it fills the reservoir to a point just below the syphon point. Your bleach tray has a tube attached to it, with a loose cap around the tube that causes the bleach to be delivered to the washload when the water is added. Remove the cap over the tube in your bleach tray. You'll also note a similar arrangement for your softener dispenser. Clean both caps and tubes. Make sure that the caps fit properly back down over the tubes. The syphoning effect will work only up to the point that the circuit is broken by air. If your cap sits up too high, the syphon effect is broken early, leaving residue (water) in the dispenser.
Best regards, --W/D--

Kenmore elite washer model 20952992 pouring water


We had the same problem. The bleach dispenser tray is located on the drum below the bleach storage pan. The dispenser tray has very small holes that were plugged by rust from the hose clamp that attached the dilution water supply hose to the bleach storage pan. I removed the top of the washing machine to discover the problem, but it may be solved by attaching a flexible tube or small hose to the end of a vacuum cleaner hose and cleaning out the dispenser tray. There is room between the dispenser tray and the storage pan and is located in the front right corner.

RUST SPOTS


My 10 year old Kenmore (Whirlpool) top load washer is rusting under the top cover. The entire cover from the bleach dispenser all around is rusted under the lid. Periodically, rust dislodges into the tub and stains whites. You would have to treat the rust under the lid. I decided to try, using "Rust-mort" rust treatment on a rag. The rust would all have to be wetted with the rustmort after some scrubbing with a scuff pad. I have not attempted this yet.
I went to OSH and checked lids on new top load washers. The lip on the cheaper models was not properly coated with paint, and I could feel the rough partially exposed metal, which would rust. The more expensive models had a smooth well coated lip on the underside of the cover. Hope this helps.
