Question about Kenmore 3.8 cu. ft. HE3 Front Load Washer

Water runs out of the rubber gasket inside the door

Water runs out of the rubber gasket hole inside the door when the cycle is finished and the door is open. It seems to be only hot water. I have to run the cycle through a few more times to get it to stop. There are no error codes since the door is open and cycle complete.

    if you do it your self it will cost ya about 65.00 or less if you buy the part at a appliance supply house you can go on appliancepartspro.com and find it and it will give you a idea for the cost but dont use there part numbers they are different from OEM parts or just get it from them you have to pay shipping but some times it is easier than dealing with the parts house and driving there several time if they have to order it I have bought stuff from them and have had no problems let me know

When I start the washer, it fills just fine with no problems but once it starts the cycle, it gushes water from the bottom of the door


Check the bottom of the plastic inner door. If there is a crack or a gouge, have it replaced. Also check the rubber door boot for holes above the water line

I cannot get my washer to release so i can open it up and switch clothes over.. It has finished its cycle i even made it do another cycle to try and get it to release but it wont.. any suggestions? Kat


There are many reasons why the door may be jammed shut -

1. The water hasn't pumped out properly and the washing machine has a pneumatic door safety lock (a rubber hose connected to the door interlock and connected to a pressure chamber bottle on the tub - water forces air up this tube and locks the door)
2. Washing machine won't empty water
3. The water has pumped out properly, but a blockage of gunge inside the pressure chamber bottle is trapping the air that's operating the door lock (if a pneumatic lock is fitted - not many have these days due to cost cutting)
4. Door interlock jammed
5. Door catch, handle, or mechanism broken
Try running Just the rinse spin cycle again,

I have mold all around the rubber gasket on the fromt of my LG washer. How can I eliminate this?


Problem:
The seal design on the washer traps water causing mildew to grow.

Solution:

If the door gasket has a small hole at the six o'clock position--it is clogged with soap scum. Use compressed air to blow this hole clear.
This allows water to drain back into the tub
If there's no hole--this is an older model LG which did not have this upgrade
Wiping the door gasket with a rag after the LAST cycle of the day helps prevent debris from accumulating. Some consumers add (1) teaspoon of bleach to a spray bottle with water--and spray the older type gaskets after the final laundry load finished--to keep the gasket clean.

Water has leaked from bottom


do you mean from the bottom of door? if so open door and run your fingers around the rubber gasket to see if there is any forign matter or rips, and check the small drain hole on the inside bottom of gasket, if there is a tear you could repair with a bicycle innertube repair patch

My Samsung washer holds water in the front rubber gasket. Mould grows in this water. How can I get rid of the water---there are drain holes but the water does not drain out.


check that the drain holes are clear, if it still persists unfortunately it will be the way its made what you can do is use a mildew spray to get rid of it then when you have finished using the machine for the day wipe the gasket dry and leave door slightly open to air it should prevent anymore mould setting in.

I want to clean can i run thru with vinger,bleach and what else can i do?


With the machine off, open the door and spray Clorox Clean-Up inside of the front rubber door seal/gasket. You should be able to gently flex the rubber seal to get inside of its cavity. This is where mold, etc. tends to accumulate. After a minute or so, brush or wipe away any debris that has accumulated. Be careful not to wear good clothes! Once you have completed the gasket/seal cleaning, begin a hot water cycle with no detergent to thoroughly rinse the bleach from the door seal/gasket.

From then on, occassionally glance inside the gasket/seal to see whether there is a build-up of mold, etc. and repeat the aforementioned process.

My GE Front load washer (WBVH6240) has an odor that smells like mildew in it. If the is left closed the odor is really bad. Do you know how to fix this or what is comes from?


run a empty cycle with bleach on whites/ sanitize. clean boot (rubber gasket at door) with bleach or other cleaner inside especially at bottom, make sure 3 holes at bottom are clear.
this may take multiple cycles to rid of odor.
For maintenance, you should wipe excess water from boot after last load, and check lower drain holes. Once a month wipe boot with windex or other. and run cleaner cycle (empty) newer machines have a special clean washer cycle. (6240 doesnt).
Also clean your drain pump filter at bottom front behind access panel.
If boot is really bad , replace.

Rubber gasket removal LG Tromm front loader


We found there is three small holes on the seal right inside the door, check to see if they are clogged with soap scum and clean them out. Run a cycle of hot water and bleach. Then, after each use, leave the door open and let it air dry and this has seem to work.
