If it is on the inside, it could damage the things you just try to clean. But still when there is rust on the door, there could be a lot of rust on other parts you can't see inside. I would go for a fix and start saving for a new machine, because there can be coming up more trouble with this one.

Under the door is rusting out how to fix

Rust is like cancer - there really is no fix. You can cut out all of the affected area and try welding another piece in there but it will come back and is a temp fix. Best way to repair is to replace entire panel with a new, primed, painted one.

I have a rust spot on the rocker panel between the door and bed on passenger side, do they make replacement panels and how are they applied

There are panels available from several manufacturers, no matter who makes it, it will require welding to install. Ford will definately make the part you need but it will be relatively expensive, if you want an aftermarket part just google "rust repair panels"

When we fix small rust spots we usually fabricate replacement parts out of 22 ga steel.

Rust on Jenn Air Refrigerator Door at Water Dispenser

You may end up respraying the door, but here goes.-

First mechanically remove as much of the rust as you can with an old screwdriver or similar scraper. Then use coarse emery cloth - 80 -120 grit untill all you're left with is shiny metal with rust pits.
You may need to go out further than you think - about 1" all round.

Then use a paint- on de-rusting fluid from vehicle products supplier. When all rust is black or dissapeared, use a zinc primer on all the bare metal. (this will stop it reacuring)

Then either spray the area with an "appliance white" aerosol or squirt it into the cap, and use a paintbrush.

If you are spraying it, open all house windows and doors, cut a mask from newspaper- then tape it to the fridge. Use blankets , plastic dustsheet or old sheets to protect things, and spray it from 12" in several very light coats.

When done, "polish" with T cut - which should remove the rust stain too.

Seal the area of the original leak with a white or clear silicone - and sort the original leak out.

If you polish the plastic with a silicone spray, water will tend to stay put rather than seep.
