You used to be able to get a brush on product that was used to fix chips in baths and appliances.. I can't remember what it was called, Check around some appliance shops perhaps they might remember?

Read a bit on why clothes might be coming out of the wash with small tears, suggested to check interior of washing machine for nicked or chipped enamel. Sure enough, there was a dime-sized chip that is rough to the touch, and the explanation is that clothes may get torn against the rough place during spin cycle. This happens especially on the edges of the many drain holes lining the drum as a machine becomes worn, the edges of the holes may get jagged. Check your washing drum routinely! Anyway, the suggested fix was 2 part: 1) use a silicone sealant to patch any chipped or rough enamel spots. Allow it to fully cure, dry according to product instructions.
2) cover the fix with enamel paint and dry completely. Check to ensure no rough area remains

If you have not all ready done so try something like iron or lime away through an empty load. if that does not work, most likely you are about to rust through the tub.. good luck

When I wash our clothes, rust stains are on the


Sure sounds like it, however, before anything else, I would shut the water off, remove the hoses, and fill 2 buckets once with the cold, then once with the hot to make sure it's not your water supply.
You'll need to fill them, and let them set for a while to see if anything has settled to the bottom. If they check O.K. then
I would call a local appliance parts house that carries Whirlpool parts. With the complete model number ask them if they carry the tub. If yes, then ask how many have they sold in the last 90 days.

If they have been selling them, then yes, your probably a good candidate. I'd call around for prices, it's fairly expensive.

WHY IS THERE RUST IN MY WASH MACHINE DRUM


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Take out the clothes immediately after the washer stops spinning. Also clean the tub with a rust remover. This issue occurs due to bad drum bearing and it may be grease rather than rust. Although the tub is metal with porcelain coating and it wears around the edge of the holes first, leaving metal without porcelain. On spinning the centrifugal force pushes the clothes against the basket and some water sneaks into the holes. Due to this you may see the rust on clothes. If still the issue persists, then the tub is required to be replaced to resolve the issue. Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee

RUST SPOTS


My 10 year old Kenmore (Whirlpool) top load washer is rusting under the top cover. The entire cover from the bleach dispenser all around is rusted under the lid. Periodically, rust dislodges into the tub and stains whites. You would have to treat the rust under the lid. I decided to try, using "Rust-mort" rust treatment on a rag. The rust would all have to be wetted with the rustmort after some scrubbing with a scuff pad. I have not attempted this yet.
I went to OSH and checked lids on new top load washers. The lip on the cheaper models was not properly coated with paint, and I could feel the rough partially exposed metal, which would rust. The more expensive models had a smooth well coated lip on the underside of the cover. Hope this helps.

Do I need to descale or rust treat my Washing Machine?


  • this is a common problem with aging kenmore washers (leaving coins in your pockets speeds it up).
  •  the basket is metal with a porcelain coating. the porcelain coating wears around the edge of the holes in the basket first, leaving bare metal.
  •  when the washer spins the centrifugal force pushes the clothes against the basket and a little into the holes. this leaves little rust rings on your clothes. 
  • lumpy816 is correct in saying that your basket should be replaced. it does require a special tool, and the basket is expensive.
  •  in the mean time try to take the clothes out immediately after the washer stops spinning. and if you get desperate you can clean thee inside of the tub with a rust remover like LCR or a strong toilet bowl cleaner that removes rust.

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.
