Rust discovered along the holes in the drum of my washer

I also own a whirlpool washer that is about 5 years old. I started to notice rust stains on lighter colored clothes and I ran my fingers on the inside of the drum and felt rough areas around some of the holes along the bottom portion of the drum. This is where the rust is developing. My husband and I are at a loss as to how to fix this. We don't want to purchase a new drum and have to install (that doesn't seem like a very easy task) and we don't want to have to buy a new washer if we can help it. The washer works perfectly with the exception of the rust. A friend of my husband's suggested bying an can of porcelan paint and spraying the inside of the drum where the rust is located. Has anyone tried this?

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959KL1 ruins clothes

I can assure you this IS a common problem. I can't tell you how many customers I have had in the past that complained about their Calypso's leaving the same marks on their clothing. The problem occurs because of the suction on the clothes as the washer extracts water from them during the final nunator cycle. The nunator is the wash plate that the clothes get caught in. The manufacturer's cure for this problem was to come up with a modified control board that reduces the final nunator time and minimizes the suction action on your clothing. The replacement control board part number is 8571359. I have ordered and installed this board on a few Calypso's. I'm surprised that nobody advised you of this in the past. If you call Whirpool back and they deny this, I got this information from them. It may be worth your while to contact them again to see if there is a recall on this and if they would cover the cost of the repairs.

SOURCE: whirlpool duet dryer felt seal replacement

The drum may to be removed to install the new felt gasket but the old drum can then be reinstalled. The felt gasket seals the joint where the drum rotates at the inside back panel. It is likely that the inside back panel can be removed when the dryer is placed front-down and the outside back panel is removed. In that case the drum does not have to come out.

My washing machine stains my clothes with a brownish-black grease-looking smear stains! Awful. I've taken the center tub agitator out, looked inside for grease but there's nothing there. What's going...


You will need to check in the first place the water inlet that connects the washer as if the pipes are rusted then it will be bringing to the washer some stains along with the rust . So allow the water to be collected and checked outside and then connected to the washer and checked.
next check on the sides of the tub /drum for any rusted parts or foreign objects that are lodged into the drum.
Finally make sure that the tub is clean, the vents and all the sections connected are brushed off with light vinegar and detergent.

Brown stains in the drum of my whirlpool dryer


Apparently a common problem with 4-5 year old Kenmore and Whirlpool dryers. The paint is rubbed off the back panel by the felt seal attached to the rotating drum. The bare metal gets rusty from the damp clothes. The rust is rubbed off by the felt seal. The entire felt seal will turn brown. The stains are transfered to the clothes. The rust stains can generally be removed by additional cleaning.
I'm going to replace the felt seal on the drum, clean the rust off the back panel and see how long it lasts. Seal w/ adhesive is $30-40.
Some have suggested painting the back panel, but i don't think fresh paint is going to last long. The original paint was probably electrostatically applied and maybe baked on.

Porcelain drum starting to rust


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.

My Frigidaire Washer Leaves Stains all over our clothes


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.

Washer and / or dryer causing stains


Better check the fabric softener dispenser because if at any time someone added undiluted softener it gum up and release at a later time especially on whites . The drum of dryer may have rust or paint missing inside or on the back , check this out . If drum is missing paint and wet clothing sets on that area long enough they will create rust .
