Appliance Epoxy Spray Paint - will it stop rust?


Not sure if this is "Painting" or "Appliance" forum but here goes.

I have a washing machine that is developing a few rust spots. A few on the underside and edge of the lid, and two inside the metal "tub".





I was thinking, if I clean the rust as best I could, can I coat something on top of these rusty spots and prevent further rust? I was looking at this product:



It does say it's "ultra-hard, moisture resistance enamel" but obviously is designed for the outside shell of washers, dryers, fridge etc...

Any chance this may work? If not, any other recommendation?

Thanks in advance.

I wire brush the rust, rusty metal primer, then use that as a top coat.

Mask off what you do not want painted.

Self-etching rust inhibiting metal primer on brushed rust spots with corrosion removed. Or you could try a rust converter product.

Follow with the epoxy appliance paint. It will buy you some time.

Most of these products were originally powder coated (baked on finish). The spray can exhibited should recommend a primer under it. Also, appliance paints are generally for the OUTSIDE of the appliance, and are not used for immersion (water) service.

Having been through that a couple of times.....in my experience...when your getting rust like that...the machine is most likely old and worn out....time to replace.

If your budget will not allow that....

I would first suggest filling up the tub with water and pouring in a gal of vinegar....let it sit for a day or two or three...then run a rinse cycle...that will get rid of most of the rust....especially the rust you can't see. Then paint....

Just understand that it's temporary measure....I got about another year out of mine before it bit the big one....
