Contact the manufacturer for advice. I don't know that there is anything to be done about this, such as applying porcelain paint, since it is probably rusted inside too. I had a similar problem a few years back and it got worse over time.
Since this happened from day 1, your water may be the problem. Do you have well water? If so, get a softener system. This will get rid of the iron, which is responsible for rust stains. I really doubt that a new machine would cause rust or grease.
Why didn't you do something five years ago when you first noticed this? It will be much more difficult to get a resolution from the manufacturer after5 years.
Give the clothes more drying time and then remove them as soon as the dryer stops. Over the years, dryers get chipped inside and if damp clothing is allowed to lay on the chipped areas, rust spots will appear.
Also, If you have a lot of iron deposits in your water, you might want to put a filter in your line into your washer.
this is a common problem with aging kenmore washers (leaving coins in your pockets speeds it up).
the basket is metal with a porcelain coating. the porcelain coating wears around the edge of the holes in the basket first, leaving bare metal.
when the washer spins the centrifugal force pushes the clothes against the basket and a little into the holes. this leaves little rust rings on your clothes.
lumpy816 is correct in saying that your basket should be replaced. it does require a special tool, and the basket is expensive.
in the mean time try to take the clothes out immediately after the washer stops spinning. and if you get desperate you can clean thee inside of the tub with a rust remover like LCR or a strong toilet bowl cleaner that removes rust.
Use Oxylic Acid Crystals dissolved in hot water and test for color fast if applicable, carpets, clothes, washer, toilet, surfaces, etc.
Oxcylic acid is a white crystaline acid which reacts specifically with Ferric Oxide, (rust) and oxidises the stain quite selectively. Few teasthingys in a small bowl of hot water and a toothbrush.
