Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer
Found the rubber liner (where socks always seem to hide) is torn and leaking water on the floor. Is this an job for repair man or can I tackle it myself?
The rubber liner is referred to as the "bellow". This is a fairly simple repair job that any do-it-yourselfer can accomplish on their own with proper guidance. The following link explains how:
Read through the link thoroughly before you begin any repairs. If this seems like a job you can accomplish, then a replacement bellow can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and the locate item number 5 under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading. The part number is 8182119. You may want to inspect the wire hoop retaining ring that holds the front of the bellow to the door frame, and the rear bellow clamp that attaches the bellow to the wash tub facing. Sometimes they also require replacement. They are listed as items number 14 and 6, respectively. You may not need these parts, but thought I would mention them just in case.
NOTE: When installing the bellow make sure you ensure the alignment mark (arrow) is in the 12 o'clock position when placing the bellow on the front of the wash tub. This will ensure that the bellow does not twist, when the tub is in motion. Also, make sure you do not overtighten the rear bellow clamp on the wash tub. This is a band type clamp that tightens with a 7mm nut driver. Tighten to make it snug and make sure that is does not leak. Overtightening can cause damage to the clamp and/or wash tub facing.
I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require additional assistance. This repair may cost you TWICE as much (or more) if a repairman does it.
