Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer
I had Whirlpool replace our drum under warranty (although expired) and now the second drum is rusting just like the second one.
If you find a good plasticizing epoxy it should work great for this most plastic epoxies can withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees F. I dont see the hot water supply feeding the machine getting any warmer than this. Another option would be to find someone with a plastic fusion and filler welder and just weld the hole shut with a base material.
Follow this easy steps...
Unplug the dryer from the electrical socket to avoid accidental electrocution.
Sand or scrub the rust spots using steel wool or sandpaper. Rust creates pits and these pits need to be smooth, like the rest of the drum areas, to prevent the rust from getting worse and to allow touch-up paint to stick.
Clean the entire inside of the drum to remove all the dust left from sanding/scrubbing. Mild soap and water will work well. Use old rags that can be thrown away.
Let the drum dry completely. You can run your dryer on the fluff dry cycle for a few minutes to dry the drum faster. If you use a heat cycle, the drum will become too hot and you will have to wait while it cools
Apply an appliance paint (see Resources) in the color that most closely matches your drum. Use the applicator that comes with the paint to dab the paint on the rust spots. You may need to add more than one coat, but make sure that you are letting the first coat dry before adding more to avoid drip marks. Allow all coats of paint to dry thoroughly before using the dryer.
