The rust is actually around the circular opening

ok you need to leave the lid open so that the interior of the washer including under the top panel that has the hole that you put the clothed through it not it stays wet ,dark and the prime place to rust to begin.You can try cleaning the rust up and using touch up paint . or replace the top .this does not happen to every washer but being from south Florida I do see it all the time no matter whom the manufacture.
