I have a new washer, less than three months old. It has been putting rust on my clothes. I bought this washer because I thought it was the old one. What could this be and how do I fix it?

It could be your water source, especially if you are on a well. It could also be coming from the water heater. They tend to rust over time and also collect dirt and sediment.

One quick test may reveal if it is the water heater.

Fill a large clear jug with smooth sides with water. First from the cold, then from the hot.

If you see discoloration from the hot water only, it is your water heater. This can often be solved by flushing the heater thoroughly at the drain until all discolored water is gone.

If you have discoloration from both sides, you may want to invest in a whole house water filter.

Spins really loud louder than it use to and leaves the clothes with a brown residue but seems to perform normally.thought maybe had a bearing going out but that doesnt explain the residue on the clothes.


the rear main berring is rusted out. its putting rust mud in the washer as well as leaking out back. Its a major repair.berring is part or rear tub. Better off buying a new washer.

Most likely the metal is aluminum or stainless and you should worry about rust unless you wash your clothes with salt-water (seawater. not gonna happen.)

If you're really concerned, I'd attempt to reach a maytag customer service person.

Wont spin out


I had a similar problem, but the precursor to this was a loud squeal when the machine came to a stop at the end of spin cycle. This squeal lasted for a couple of months (since I was afraid to take it apart). The one day there was a leak during the drain cycle, so I looked behind it and found the flex hose that goes between the drum and the pump. I replaced the hose after about a week, and when I tried to use the washer, it did not spin anymore. So I turned the washer upside down, pulled the drum out, and found a big 'caution' tag on the plate, but don't be worried. Out of the 6 screws that hold the plate on, I took out three opposing ones and bought 3 of the same pitch but only that they are 2" long. Then I put a nut on each one, and put them into three opposing holes in the plate. Run the 3 nuts down to the plate, then take the three remaining short screws out. Slowly back off the three nuts equally, and within 1.5" the plate is safely off. Then I lifted the spring out along with the brake drum. The drum had rusted itself in place. This was because of the water hose leak. So I sanded the brake drum lining lightly to remove the glaze, and sanded the place where it was rusted to. Then I put it all back together, and it works like new!

Washer pauses at various points in all cycles


Peace friend,
ngfam1 at your service

Tell the dealer you want a different make!
IT'S EASIER TO KEEP CUSTOMERS THAN TO FINED NEW ONES!

We have been selling appliances for over 65 years!
And you will only see one GE appliance on my showroom floor!

Whirlpool or SPEED QUEEN! ARE THE BEST!

HERE IS MY STORY FOR YOU!


AFTER 6 YEARS AND THREE repairs.
I threw GE in the trash and bought a Speed Queen Commercial grade washer and, I AM 53 YEARS OLD AND THIS IS THE LAST WASHER I WILL EVER BUY!
tHEY ARE TESTED AT 8 loads a week for 25 years!!!!!!!

The washers and dryers today use so much less water,electricity,and detergent that they pay for them selves after a only a few years.
My advise is, it is cheaper to buy, run, and operate a new efficient machine! You will see you water and electric bill reduced!!!!!!!!!
Speed Queen commercial grade top loader uses only 34 gallon of water compared to the others at 48-54 gallons!


THE FRONT LOADER,

(GET THIS) ONLY 13.9 GALLONS of water and washes in 35 minutes and the clothes are cleaner and last longer cause it uses water agitation instead of a vain to wear out your clothes! How about spinning at 1000 RPM and the clothes come out so dry they are only in the dryer half the time than all the other machines! Thus half the gas or electric bill!!
All my employees have replaced their laundry pairs with Speed Queen!
My Guys call it the, "No brainier Machine!"

I hope you can utilize the good advice I so enjoy sharing with all the good people we talk to!

Rusty stains on all white clothes washed


I don't think the washer is at fault; the clue is 'Used very little.' I think the rust is originating in the water pipes serving the washer. The only help there is to run one machine with no clothes in it (wasting water) or putting splitters on the faucets and flushing the lines into a sink or other drain. To remove rust stains from WHITE (!) clothing and many synthetics, buy a product named 'Whink.' It is available in many drug stores, super markets, etc. in the area where one finds other laundry items.  It is fairly safe to use (with precautions) but keep out of reach of kids.

Rust stains and bleach spots.


I'm sorry but the white spots will be due to bleach. It may be that there was undissolved bleach in the washer after the first load. Maybe some of it came out with the whites and lay in wait in the basket.

I doubt the makers would guarantee anything for 7 years, so no free basket or installation is likely. Seems there is a chip in the enamel and dampness / water from the previous wash days before sits there collecting iron as rust particles.

For the time being you could try rinsing the machine out before the first load. That might prevent the rust marks or reduce them.

Belt burnout and transmission gone


It will need a seal and transmission. Expect one and a half to two hours labor. Best bet. Bite the bullet and get another washer as this will probably happen again.
