Hello from JA
My name is Woody.
I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.

I can ONLY do one appliance per question.

On the washing machine is the inner wash basket plastic or painted metal ?

If it is metal do you see any rust spots one or around any of the holes in the basket?

And these spots will they wash out of the clothing?

And have you ever used a store bought washer cleaner on the unit to clean out mineral and detergent deposits with in the unit?
