Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
The rinse chamber inside the rubber door seal there are 5 drain holes and staining from rust. We had the door seal replaced 6 months ago? I don't know if it is hard water causing the rust or if the seal was not installed properly. We never had this problem before the seal was replaced? Let me know what you think and thanks for your help!
If you have iron in your water there's little doubt that's what's causing it.

1. Iron or manganese in the water supply. • Avoid using chlorine bleach on rust stains. It will make them darker and more obvious. • When iron is dissolved in the water, use granular detergent plus a non-precipitating water conditioner, such as Calgon or Spring Rain*. Better results may be obtained by dissolving detergent and water conditioner in the wash before adding the clothes. Be certain that all clothes are down into the water before starting washer. • If the iron is suspended in the water (it will settle out), attach a rust filter to the faucet and inlet hoses or to the water line. • If iron or manganese stains are a recurring problem, the customer may need a special filter or chemical feeder installed in the home to remove these minerals from the water supply. To remove: Launder with RoVer* Rust Remover Part No. 057961 using the directions below: • Top loading washers: a. Fill the washer with water (no detergent), selecting a temperature suitable for the fabric (hot or warm). b. Add 1/3 cup RoVer and let it dissolve by agitation. c. Add clothes and allow washer to complete the cycle. d. Follow up with an additional wash with detergent.
Be sure to check the spin basket for rust spots also.
