Hello, get some appliance touch up paint at the hardware store. Touch up those little rust spots on the drum of the washer with it. It happens when you launder garments with metal buttons, rivets and zippers, like jeans. They agitate and spin against the drum causing the paint to chip off. A little touch up paint and the problem is solved.

Thanks

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

Sounds like you have a bad drum bearing. I would guess that it's grees rather than rust although it will look like rust.

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 from washer getting on clothes


Don't let anything sit in the washer. When it's done running, take the clothes out. You can get a product called rust reverser. It has to be applied to a dry surface.

Rust spots showing up on the clothes?


Give the clothes more drying time and then remove them as soon as the dryer stops. Over the years, dryers get chipped inside and if damp clothing is allowed to lay on the chipped areas, rust spots will appear.
Also, If you have a lot of iron deposits in your water, you might want to put a filter in your line into your washer.
