The rubber seal (or bellow) wears with age and will eventually deteriorate over time. Excessive use of detergent, and/or use of the wrong detergent (detergent that is not HE) can contribute to rubber breakdown too. Regular detergent is formulated for washers that use a wash tub with a capacity of 35 gallons. HE detergent is formulated for High Efficiency washers that only use 5 to 7 gallons of water. So, if you place regular detergent in an HE washer, you are (in affect) putting a higher concentration of soap in your washer. This higher concentration of soap can act as a corrosive to rubber and become permeated in your clothing as it does not rinse completely. This can lead to skin irritations as well. It is important that if you are not using HE detergent that you do so in the future to prevent premature breakdown of the rubber seals of the washer and pump. This will also void most manufacturer warranties if it determined you are using improper detergent. Now...I'm not trying to accuse you of abusing your appliance and not trying to lecture you. I'm merely putting this information out, because some people simply do not know. Overloading the washer is another contributor to excessive wear on the bellow as well as not keeping the bellow cleaned properly. Mold and mildew can contribute to the break down of rubber. The following link can give some advice on proper care of the door bellow:

Since your bellow is already leaking, it must be replaced. Replacements can be ordered on line at either searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com, or pcappliancerepair.com. All these websites offer competitive pricing, so you can shop for the best deals. Just type in your COMPLETE model number to begin your search. The Sears website offers helpful exploded view diagrams to assist in part identification and location. NOTE: You may consider ordering the front and rear bellow clamps if yours are damaged. Refer to the Sears website for pictorial view.

If you need assistance in replacing the bellow, the following link will give you the steps necessary to complete this repair on your own:

SOURCE: I need to replace the molding door boot seal on my

you need to first unplug the unit. next you need to remove 4 screws that hold the dispenser lid on. next open the door remove 4 screws. remove the door and the out side panel. next located to the top left and right you will see a bracket with a 5/16 bolt remove them and take the bracket off. next lift the lid. you will have access to the door seal. you will see a spring at the top that is the band that holds the seal to the tub. the front of the seal just peels off. when putting the band and spring back on may be a little tricky. get one side up to the top gett a piece of duct tape and secure it. so that you can properly get the rest of the band on without fighting with it. get some vise grips and pull the spring over and attach to the part that is tapped. let me know if this helps or if you need more instructions.

SOURCE: My whirlpool duet front load washer door leaks.

YOU NEED A NEW BOOT ON THE INSIDE OF THE DOOR. WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR DOOR THERE SHOULD BE A GRAY RUBBERY RING. AS A MATTER OF FACT, IF YOU MOVE THAT RING AND PUT YOUR FINGERS IN IT YOU WILL PROBABLY FIND A MISSING SOCK OR TWO! THAT RING HAS TORN AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACED.

Water leak out the bottom of the door when it running door seam lose


If the washer is leaking water the front door boot seal might have a tear or rip and is letting water leak past. The boot seal can be replaced. This part can tear when the washer is overloaded. This is common repair.

Water leaking bottom front door


Check out the front seal carefully for a replacement. Due to the flexibility of the seal, it is not to easy to spot a tear mark, Under pressure of an operation load, a small tear will allow water leaking through, so there is a leak. It is very common that a hard sharp object left inside clothing and during washing cycle, it makes its way to the seal and cause a damage. Hope this can help.

My Maytag Neptune fnt loader Model# MAH9700AWW


I have a Maytag neptune mah8700aww
With mine the large grey rubber seal that seals at door slipped off! When this happens if you do not put back on correctly it will leak or even poor out the front center bottom of the door! My husband fixed it. But it still leaked really bad! I just took a couple of min. to refit the seal and it does not leak at all now! maybe your seal is not placed around the edge correctly! as it is easy to place it wrong! good luck!! keep my email address if I was helpfull!! We can always share problems and solutions for our neptunes in the future ! good luck
