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!

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

How to stop water from coming in the passenger floor board

That depends upon the cause of the water. There are a few possibilities, depending upon the vehicle. See this list and use what applies as a way to narrow down the source.

1. Rust hole in floorboard. Only way to fix is to repair hole.
2. Leaking door seal on passenger side. Locate and repair leaking seal.
3. Leaking sun/moon roof. Some vehicles that have these run their drain lines down the passenger side door pillar and down thru the floor pan. Sometimes the hose shrinks with age or breaks and allow water to get on to the floor. Remove the passenger side kick panel and inspect and repair as needed.
4. Leaking heater core. Feel and smell the water. If it smells like antifreeze or has an oily feel, it may be coolant leaking from the heater core. Of course there should be a loss of coolant associated with this problem. Here the only solution is to bypass or replace the heater core.
5. Leaking windshield seal. Most car windshields today are glued into place. These glue joints can break loose and allow water to leak. Also, rust can form around the windshield seal and cause rust holes that can leak. Lastly, extremely high-powered car stereo systems that pump mega-bass can cause overpressure inside the vehicle that can cause the seal of the glass to separate.

Rain water gets trapped inside the two rear doors and takes several days to drain. What problems will this cause and how can I fix it?

There should be a drain hole between the door rubber (seal) and outside edge of the door. These holes are most likely blocked and you need to unblock these with a piece of wire.
If you leave the water in there rust will form in the seam of the door and spread.

Painting the outer edges of the interior of a refrigerator..where the door seals meet the interior

Most likely not rust. You would see rust stains. IF you do repaint it, make sure that it is clean and dry. Oil or contaminates can cause the problem that you are describing.

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.

94 Jeep Wrangler back shelf rusting

Wire brush the area off and vacuum up any debris. You can use "rust killer" on the rusted surfaces and then use fiberglass mat to repair any holes. Overlap holes by at least 5" wherever possible. You can leave this unfinished or use spray bedliner paint to further seal the deck. i also recommend you go underneath and remove any loose rust and spray afterward with rubberized undercoating or rust will continue to form there. When using fiberglass on flat surfaces you can lay mat down dry and just pour resin on it and smooth it out so resin penetrates and you don't have lumps.

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.

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
