Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

Rust in the rinse chamber

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!

Re: Rust in the rinse chamber

If you have iron in your water there's little doubt that's what's causing it.

Large dark brown spots appearing after washing

Normally a washer does not cause a staining problem, but If something inside the washer has rusted, it could. I would check your water tank. Drain water from the drain cock at the bottom of the tank, and see how dirty it is. If it is dirty, you need to drain the water until it is almost clear.

I get what look like rust streaks on my white clothing when I wash them in my washer. The stains do not come out even with straight bleach. RIT rust stain remover will get them out, but there's not...

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.

Have had numerous items ruined due to brown stain

My Maytag Front Loader also has periodically caused rust stains on clothes. After investigating it I determined the cause.

The top of the machine is rusting around the opening under the lid where you add the detergent, fabric softener, and bleach. Water apparently splashes up on the bottom of the lid and it rusts. The flakes of rust then flake off and fall into the plastic reservoir and are washed into the machine. The only fix is to replace the top of the machine, or take it off, physically clean off the rust and apply a coating of rust resistant paint to the inside. A quick fix is to remove the plastic cover (4 phillips screws) and clean as much rust off around the edges as you can. Be sure and keep the rust from falling down the hole where the water flows into the machine.

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.

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.

Wasing machine leaves rust spots on clothes.

check the basket of the machine for rust spots on the basket if thats the case the basket should have a 10 year warranty depending on the age marks are either caused from that or the dryer. if its frigidaire the dryer then the front seals probably need to be changed make sure to find out exactly which machine its coming from
