Re: leaking....front door won't close

Carefully look at the door gasket to see if any irregularity in seal. Could be problem with door seal; or you could easily change door mechanism thru a spare part shop quoting your model and spare-part No or "door mechanism"

My 4 yr old Whirlpool Duet front load washer is leaking water onto the floor from the bottom of the machine. It seems to be coming from underneath or back, it is not coming through the door. It's not...

The most frequent place for a front-loader to leak is on the door connector boot. The boot connects the drum to the door. You can often remove it and replace it upside down and that will give you a few more months' use.

My whirlpool amw8121 front loader won't spin. It

There should be a door-actuated limit switch which detects that the door is closed, which is probably defective. Look for the plunger, listen for the click. It is the most likely component to fail, and is inexpensive to replace if you're handy. Be sure to have your machine unplugged during repairs.

Kenmore front load washer door won't latch lock light on

On some Kenmore front load models, if the black gasket around the door opening is unseated (for example, because you drag some heavy wet laundry over it) the door will not engage the lock and stay closed. This is a feature to prevent the washer from leaking when the gasket is not sealed. To fix it, simply reseat the gasket and the door will close and lock.

check the rubber connector around the inside of the door sometimes it gets "wrinkled" and keeps the door from closing correctly. also if it is leaking from around the door you may have a bad gasket if you are careful and patient you may be able to fix this with silicon sealer, squirt some inside the gasket where its messed up and mold or shape the silicone while its still "wet" to fit. Otherwise get a new one from
