While doing repairs on my washer, I removed the inner tub.
The outside part of the tub that sits on the gearcase shaft is severely rusted.
There is no other rust on the outside or inside of the tub.
It is only present in the "tube" of the basket that accommodates the gearcase shaft. It is rusted from the bottom to the top of that area.
Is this normal?
It is possible for the inner basket to have an orange brown rust to it. This is especially true in areas that have hi levels of Iron in the water.
