I washed several yards of bright red flannel (preshrinking) in my new Maytag top loader. The tub sides are stainless steel but the bottom of the tub is mostly plastic (I think - definitely not metal). It has no agitator. Anyway, the plastic parts are all dyed red and I can't seem to get the color off. I tried running it with just hot water and bleach, and I have tried cleaning it with the tablet I use once a month for that purpose but it is still red. I hate it. I doubt it will come off on any thing I wash but it annoys me just to look at it. Any suggestions for getting rid of the red? Thanks.
