I was wrong, it is a GE, where is the model number?
Expert:  Kelly replied 5 months ago.

Model number should be under the lid or on top of the timer console.

Are they spots or streaks you are finding? Will they come out?

Was $28 not enough to answer my question? So far I haven't gotten for my $28 but offers to spend another $24
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
As I said, they are tiny pin prick spots and they do not come out. The items have not been put in the dryer.

Where are you Kelly
Expert:  applianceguy replied 5 months ago.
You have rust or mineral build up on inner tub. If you look closely at the holes you will see brown in them. You can try and clean the tub. Use iron out around 2 cups. Put unit on highest wash level and hottest water. Run through longest cycle. If this does not clear up your problem, it is rust and replacing tub is not worth the cost. Better to get a new washer at that point.
