RUST?!

There is rust in my washing machine! My mom spilt a soda on Tristan's karate uniform so I had it soaking in the machine. After I let the cycle run I noticed there are now rust spots all over his uniform!!! Then I pulled out Adelyn's diapers from the dryer and there are some rust spots on them :( Now that I look I can see rust on the bin there. I might just have to get a new washer. Boo! Any tips for removing rust?! I'm gonna try and save the washer but I think it might be a lost cause.

Oh yikes! I have no idea!!

How old is your machine?

What kind of soda did she spill?

Oh, and is the rust that you can see, on the wash basin itself?

 It's old. I bought it used last year when my other one crapped out. My other one is in the garage but it needs a new lid latch and I just never ordered the part (kicking myself in the bum for it now!). She spilt a soda with cherry on it. I got that stain out but now there is rust stains that I will have to try and get out now.

 Yeah like when I look in I can see the bottom have of the basin is a different color and has a different feel to it. I'd take a picture but I'm running a wash of hot water and lemon juice to see if it has any effect.
