I am not sure about how to remove the rust spots but to recover your appliance without replacing it then check out www.applianceart.com
They have selections to recover your dishwasher including real and faux stainless options to have your existing appliances looking new in a flash. These guys are worth checking out.

Normally these appliances use brushed steel which gives a stainless steel look.

Get a magnet and run it on the sheet. If it sticks then it definitely is not stainless steel.
However, with wear and tear stainless steel surface does break down causing rust to start.

    There is in fact a type of genuine stainless steel which is magnetic (martensitic stainless).

    The problem is more one with low-grade stainless which is easier to form into the necessary shapes, but which can spot rust. Obtain a bottle of dilute phosphoric acid solution from a pool shop (chlorinator cell cleaner). Pour a small amount of this in a plastic dish. Wear eye protection and rubber gloves, and use this acid to scrub the rust. Leave it for 15 min then rinse off. The acid will passivate and convert the rust spot so it does not spread.

Can stainless steel rust?


Unfortunately yes, any stainless steel product can get rusty under some circumstances although a stainless steel is much more resistant to corrosion and rust. I suggest you to get stainless steel if you don't want to replace your silverware and kitchen product every couple of months.

Rust spots appearing on the front doors of my Bosch refrigerator


Stainless steel does rust - or at least that is the theory.

There is in fact two types of stainless steel; the original categorised austenitic which is instantly recognised due to it being unable to attract a magnet due to the absence of iron. Austenitic is relatively expensive and difficult to work but adding iron in various quantities to the alloy produces a cheaper, lighter metal that looks good and is easier to work while still providing some resistance to corrosion. The more iron that is added to the ferritic type of stainless, the lighter, cheaper and easier it is to work but the corrosion resistance is substantially reduced.

Cars have been fitted with stainless steel exhaust systems of the ferritic type for many years and although they last a long time they soon show surface rust and sometimes will rust through.

I expect your fridge wipes are either acid or alkaline that are suitable only for austenitic and good grades of ferritic and Bosch have used a particularly poor grade of stainless. I expect fridge magnets stick very well...

Mild discolouration could be removed with a mild abrasive cleaner though that would tend to ruin the brushed finish. Clearly future cleaning should be carried out with a neutral ph cleaner and the surface protected with a hard wax polish.

I suggest you check the cleaning instructions in the Bosch instruction book. If you feel you have done nothing wrong you might be able to claim from your household insurer as accidental damage. It would be a good idea to inform the manufacturer of the cleaning wipes...

Stainless steel is rusty/blotchy


Jenn Air makes great products, don't blame them. Your type of stainless steel is a consumer grade that has less nickel-chromium in the mix making it affordable to the consumer. The surface needs to be "pacified", DeBruce Polish will REMOVE THE RUST and PACIFY the surface. We get Debruce Polish at debrucepolish.com.
