Why is the bleach dispenser rusted on my washing machine?

I have a Kenmore washing machine that is approximately 7 years old. The tub near the bleach dispenser is rusted. Why did this happen? Is there anything I can do to fix it?

The reason the tops rust around the bleach dispensers is because the bleach was not wiped up when it splashes over. Bleach is caustic and when allowed to stay on a painted surface, it will cause rust.

The rust should be cleaned off and sanded. Paint it with a primer and 2 coats of paint and you should be fine.
